Fiery Darts...

"Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the ruler of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand." Ephesians 6:10-13

Put on your armor...we're at war...our mind is the battlefield . The devil works diligently to set up strongholds in our mind, just waiting....very patiently....planning our deception. That is why God's Word tells us to put on the whole armor of God, that we may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. We're fighting against an unseen enemy...and we can't win...without God.

Lord, help me today to stand with my waist girded with truth, wearing the breastplate of righteousness, having my feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. Help me to take up my shield of faith to quench the fiery darts of the wicked one, to wear the helmet of salvation, and to wield the sword of the Spirit...praying always, being watchful to the end. Thank you, God, for giving me the armor I need to fight the enemy. I love you, Lord. Amen and amen.
