Your Crushing and Mine; Isn’t designed to take Us out!! It may appear so; but look deeper…
The Spiritual battle isn’t like your everyday street fight! You have to come prepared and have a plan of action. Your mind has to be equipped to block those fiery darts!!!
The book of Ephesians tells us we are to put on the whole armor of God! So again I ask you! Are you battle ready? Are you ready to block those fiery darts? Are you ready to Pull yourself up; when you’ve been knocked down? Are you ready to Turn the other cheek when you’re slapped back into reality?
When that negativity comes out of nowhere! You have to come right back; “I am blessed and highly favored”! When those attacks start coming in “no weapon formed against me shall prosper” when you begin to feel like it’s too much and you want to give up; “be strong and courageous”!
We have to be battle ready! The enemy will use any situation to come in and cause destruction! That’s his job; We have to be ready! So We won’t be defeated; in our minds, our bodies, our soul and our spirit! Stay on guard!
Every situation God uses to build Us up; the enemy can switch it up and try to break us down! For example; God can be moving the wrong people out our lives and the enemy flips it and have us thinking that we did something wrong for these people to depart and what we do? We Chase after them! Or have a pity party! Please Realize the blessing in disguise! God has better on the way; allow Him to part the sea in your life! Allow Him to work!
When Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego stepped out of the fiery furnace they weren’t burned, they didn’t even smell of smoke; why?
Because God was with them! They didn’t deny him, they didn’t compromise, they didn’t lower their standards; they believed and had Faith that God was with them and that He would show up and show out!
What Is God trying to accomplish in your life? Living for God isn’t and won’t be easy! The battles will be many but He has equipped Us with ALL WE NEED.
So, I challenge you all today:
Pick up your Full Armor of God!
Pick up your Helmet
Pick up your sword
Pick up your shield
There is a BATTLE TO BE WON!
Are You Ready?
