God Bless you everyone. We give thanks to our LORD for another glorious day. I was just thinking.....
This Christian life is a battle. But thank God He has equipped us for THE BATTLE (Ephesians 6:13-17). The Apostle Paul warns us our enemies are not flesh and blood. And they are not mere fantasies, but they are very real. As Christians, we face a powerful and a real enemy; whose primary goal is to defeat Christ’s church. This enemy works diligently to turn us from Christ and tempt us to succumb to the ways of the world. Although we have the victory, we must still engage in “THE BATTLE"(Struggle) until CHRIST returns. We need supernatural power to defeat the ruler of darkness. Our LORD has equipped us with the power of His Holy Spirit, who lives within us, and His spiritual armor that surrounds us (Ephesians 6:13).
Whenever you feel discouraged, remember Jesus’ words to Peter “Upon this rock, I will build My church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18). Remember, we are in a “BATTLE” that’s been fought and won. Therefore, be diligent and fear not. Fear is one of the enemy’s strongest tools, along with discouragement and insecurity. First Peter 5:7-8 is good news for all believers! AMEN!
I love you with the love of the Lord! STAY SAFE and Pray Without Ceasing! Tell somebody about JESUS!
