The Battle

   Posted by: pastordiehl   in Uncategorized

In life there are so many joys and special times, but we all know that sometimes there are battles we find ourselves in. Sometimes my battles are just from stress, and doing too much, but sometimes my battles are spiritual battles that can only be won with the Lord.

As I was praying about this, the Lord reminded me of Ephesians 6:10-18 that we wrestle against principalities and powers of darkness, and need to put on the armor of God. We all know this, but just how hard is it to do? In my minds eye, I saw a battlefield, and wounded soldiers laying on the ground. Along with the people was a bunch of “armor” on the field too, laying on the ground. I felt the Lord say, that there are many wounded because they have put their armor down.

Let’s pick up our helmet of salvation, breastplate of rightness, sword of the Spirit (Word of God) shield of faith, etc….. It’s ours to pick up or leave lay.

We get busy and need reminded to read the word, and keep our shield of faith up so the enemies firey darts won’t hurt us. Stand up and stand firm! Don’t quit!
