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, sothat when the day ofevil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have doneeverything, to stand. Standfirm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousnessin place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness thatcomes fromthe 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 thehelmetofsalvationand 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 alwayskeep on praying for all the saints.
Is your armor on?
We can't be in the battle (and weare) and expect results to befavorable if the armor is sitting on the
shelve...tucked away inthe draw or
perhaps we onlyput 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 betransformed
to be more like Christ.May you fully understand the price paid for your
salvation. I praythat your faith would continue to grow, thatyouwouldbe witnesses to the miracles
of Jesus. I pray that you would hunger
forthe 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 theGood Lord strengthen his people.
God bless you!~Liz
"And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the
synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have
received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. "This, then, is how you should pray: " 'Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation,but deliver us from the evil one.
This morning on my usual ride to
work...I take that time to pray. Today I felt tired...perhaps overwhelmed somewhat and as I began to pray...it was as if
I began to tell my Father all the things that I needed.
please...Father...I need.... No sooner than the words came out of my
mouth....quickly the Spirit of God said....not like that Liz....you know
better....come..rest at my feet and begin to worship Me.... It's not that God
is waiting on His throne to receive all his adoration before he will even open
his ears to me...but its because he knows that not only does he deserve all
glory, honor, & adoration from me....he knows that's how he made me...to
worship him....he knows that as I begin to lift his name higher...that the
cares of this world diminishes....I don't know how it happens..but something
transpires...something supernatural and Peace comes in...truly He came into my
car as I drove and began to cry and adore my Savior....then my petitions easily
flowed and it was a beautiful melody...no longer a list of things for God to do
for me.....but a time of being refreshed and perspective began to realigned
itself...Glory to Jesus!
