Sometimes we get so wrapped up in the study of spiritual warfare that we forget to apply it properly to our lives. We may imagine it is on us, we may pretend to put it on each morning, but this isn’t pretend and this isn’t only about how we think. To put on our armor of protection and to have our Sword in our hand, we need to walk a certain way. We must be doers of God’s word, not just a hearer of God’s word.
Some of us wake up, pretend our super Christian armor is on us, and head out the door. We listen to filthy music, get on the phone and start to gossip, grumble about life, worry and fret over worst case scenarios, curse at people who can’t drive or park, we lie, use filthy words, steal, cheat, have horrible thought lives and make excuses for sins in our life – wasting time on social media and hours of filthy ungodly entertainment. Who are we kidding? Surely, ourselves.
Today I wanted to REMIND you to protect yourself from the devils attacks and lies that try to pull you away from the Lord , to get you suited up in full armor and have your Sword ready.
Live today in God’s righteousness and peace. Stay away from evil- watch your words, your thoughts, your actions. Let all you do today glorify God. What are you listening to? Don’t gossip! Don’t start arguments, forgive others and do all you can to live in peace today.
Righteousness and Peace have kissed each other! Ps 85:10
Yes! That is your supernatural protection – you chose it by the way you live.
How do you live in peace and righteousness? You must know the truth, that is God’s word. Open it up today and begin to hear and be lead by the Spirit of Wisdom and Truth.This truth will also build your faith. You will know and understand that no weapon formed against you shall prosper and every word or attack that comes upon you will not prosper for this is the heritage of the saints of the Lord.
And…for those of you who are under attack and trials now, God says to put your trust in Him fully. Tell Him what you need and the Lord promises to put a guard of great peace around your heart and mind as you trust in Him. – See! That is part of your shield and your helmet-God’s word is what you can trust and hope in.
Your protection and your weapon are based on God’s word- and prayer.
Live a godly life based on God’s word and you will have the protection you need today. Don’t fool yourself and think you can keep living in sin, causing problems, fighting with others and living in other nonsense and then pretend to put on put on your armor. It doesn’t work that way.
Directions: Pray! Behave! Believe! Read and Meditate on God’s word- read it, speak it, believe it, live it!
I read this early this morning, this is good scripture to think and meditate on today
Get wisdom; develop good judgment.
Don’t forget my words or turn away from them.
Don’t turn your back on wisdom, for she will protect you.
Love her, and she will guard you.
Getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do!
And whatever else you do, develop good judgment.
If you prize wisdom, she will make you great.
Embrace her, and she will honor you.
She will place a lovely wreath on your head;
she will present you with a beautiful crown.”
My child, listen to me and do as I say,
and you will have a long, good life.
I will teach you wisdom’s ways
and lead you in straight paths.
When you walk, you won’t be held back;
when you run, you won’t stumble.
Take hold of my instructions; don’t let them go.
Guard them, for they are the key to life.
Don’t do as the wicked do,
and don’t follow the path of evildoers.
Don’t even think about it; don’t go that way.
Turn away and keep moving.
For evil people can’t sleep until they’ve done their evil deed for the day.
They can’t rest until they’ve caused someone to stumble.
They eat the food of wickedness
and drink the wine of violence!
The way of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn,
which shines ever brighter until the full light of day.
But the way of the wicked is like total darkness.
They have no idea what they are stumbling over.
My child, pay attention to what I say.
Listen carefully to my words.
Don’t lose sight of them.
Let them penetrate deep into your heart,
for they bring life to those who find them,
and healing to their whole body.
Guard your heart above all else,
for it determines the course of your life.
Avoid all perverse talk;
stay away from corrupt speech.
Look straight ahead,
and fix your eyes on what lies before you.
Mark out a straight path for your feet;
stay on the safe path.
Don’t get sidetracked;
keep your feet from following evil.
Yes, Amen….Don’t get sidetracked.
Walk in peace and righteousness today, decide to fill your heart and mind with God’s word and whatever you do….guard your lips, your feet and your heart from all evil. Yes, be simple to what is evil and be wise to what is good.
