This morning I was taken back in my thoughts to what I call one of my flagship scriptures that I have loaded in my arsenal against the wicked one. I would like to share it with you this morning and why you must load up and be aware.
Ephesians 6: 10; 16
“10 In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides
16 Lift up over all the [covering] shield of saving faith, upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [one].”
..I just love this. It gets me excited just talking about it. Vs 10 tells me how to get my strength and where it comes from, and Vs 16 tells me what to do with it once I get it.
Use your faith in Jesus and his word like a shield, and cover your family with it daily. Speak it, sing it, say it, proclaim it, whisper it; whatever it takes to get the word of God to your family.
Please take note that it is up to you to raise the shield. If you don’t, you just stand there getting hit with all kinds of attacks, not to mention that your family could get attacked.
Now I desire for you to read the other verses (11-15) because they equip you completely for the battle that you face daily. This is one of my favorite chapters in the bible. It is so relevant for today. Please take the time to read it and apply it in your life.
Please know that you are in my prayers. Have a great day.
