“Put on all of God’s armour so that you will be able to stand firm against all the strategies of the devil. For we 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.”
What is really going on behind the scenes..? Friends, we are in a spiritual battle. Yet just as Paul said, often our enemy does not come in the form of flesh and blood, but is found in the unseen spiritual world. Yet we are not left as helpless sheep against our wolf-like enemy. We are fully protected by the blood of Jesus and have been equipped with the tools and armoury to withstand the enemy’s strategies. For the next week we will be structuring our devotionals as prayers so that we can guard ourselves against the enemy and his divisive tactics. As you pray the armour of God over your lives, we pray that you will begin to find victory in Him. That fear is swept away and the truth of who you are in Christ we lead you forwards…..
“For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared…..”
Lord, as I go out today, I carry the Good News of the King. May I remember that wherever I go, it’s Your Kingdom territory. I am Your ambassador. I am Your light in the dark places. Equip me to be the salt in conversation. May I speak love and peace to all I meet. May I take Kingdom ground wherever I step, breaking the chains of the enemy, in the Name of Jesus Christ. May boldly share Your Good News so all I meet without fear of man, or what people will say. In Jesus’ Name.
