Ephesians 6:10-11 (KJV) Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Food for Thought: If we are to be sheepdogs, those men and women who are willing to “protect the flock and confront the wolf,” ready to defend the innocent, helpless, and oppressed, we must first prepare our hearts and minds for the moment of decision in combat. Today is that day of preparation. This moment is required of you, my brothers in Christ. It is your moment to decide whether you will be a coward and run in the face of the life-taker, satan, or if you will be an extension of the hand of Jesus, the life-giver.
Will you not only identify the adversary but also prepare your heart, mind, and body for battle against the evil one? Will you, in the moment of decision, choose to act with wisdom, prudence, and courage? This is the challenge at hand.
Advance in your mission today with the knowledge and truth of God’s Word, knowing you are fighting for a noble and worthy cause, and that you are prepared and equipped for victory. This is your moment. So lets gird up and be ready, pray with me:
Heavenly Father, I know that I am in battle against a supernatural force of evil, and the only way I can be triumphant in this battle is through an even more powerful force. I know that you are that force. Thank you for giving me the wisdom, courage, and strength to be your hands and feet in this world. Thank you for the opportunity to stand between
