Are you ready for the battle before you?
We do not fight against flesh and blood.
We battle against a force more sinister and conniving.
If you think the biggest challenge you face is in front of you…
…facing you, tangible…think again.
What is invisible and unseen is just as real as anything you can touch or see.
Are you WEARING the clothes you really NEED?
The enemy would love for you to believe that what you see in this world is ALL there is.
Be prepared for what you can’t see.
Prepare your heart,
Prepare your mind
Ready your soul.
Clothing yourself EACH day with the
Armor of God: His Spiritual ARMOR
Ephesians 6:10-18 New Living Translation (NLT)
The Whole Armor of God
10 A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. 12 For we[a] are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.
13 Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. 14 Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. 15 For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.[b] 16 In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil.[c] 17 Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.[d]
Praying this for yourself is POWERFUL
Praying this for another, is intercessory prayer.
God HEARS it ALL.
I am a major fan of the music video and song that I posted with this. I am also including the lyric video for it because I am a WORD lover and believe understanding the words of a song are as important as the melody that carries it.
Just Remember, we are told that God’s Still small voice is always there, ready to speak to us — if we will only BE STILL.
