“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…..
“Put on salvation as your helmet.…..”
Lord, I pray that I will stand firm and secure in my salvation. I pray that my mind will be guarded from evil thoughts. Thoughts to harm me and not to prosper me, which is contrary to what You want for me, will not enter my mind. I pray that You will help me fix my thoughts on eternal things, not on natural things which are carnal. I pray that You will fill my mind with Your thoughts and Your plans for me. Help me to discern what is carnal thinking and deal it with accordingly. Let me rest in my salvation. Amen
