Lord Strengthen Your People

Ephesians 6:11-18 (NIV)

Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.

 Is your armor on?

We can't be in the battle (and we are) and expect results to be favorable if the armor is sitting on the shelve...tucked away in the draw or perhaps we only put on one piece...  The Word says...put on the full armor of God...and pray in all occasions!

Today I pray for you (and for me)......may God encourage you today with his Word.  May your mind continually be transformed to be more like Christ. May you fully understand the price paid for your salvation. I pray that your faith would continue to grow, that you would be witnesses to the miracles of Jesus.  I pray that you would hunger for the Word and know that nothing else satisfies, only Christ. Know that God has attributed his righteousness to you.
Stand in the truth and let us not be ashamed. Always be ready..ready to give an answer for the hope within you. May the Good Lord strengthen his people.

God bless you!~Liz
