Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Ephesians 6:13
Are you cowering under fear when you hear the world news? Terror attacks. Police killings. Military cutbacks. God did not give us a spirit of fear it says in 2 Timothy 1:7 "For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline." Some translations say He gives us a 'sound mind'. I don't know about you but peace and a soundness of mind sounds pretty good to me. How do you achieve that in the midst of the evil around us?The verse I highlighted above in Ephesians is part of the verses dealing with spiritual warfare. We put on the armor of God which is God's word and we go out and we stand. We do not hide, or sit, or squat. We stand and do it with strength and confidence. Our enemies have no power over the power of God living inside of us. Do not let world chaos make you fear. Read the word. Know that the King of kings is bigger and more powerful than our enemies and He wins in the end.Next time you feel bothered just talk out loud and tell the devil and his little minions to leave you alone and tell him he has no power over you and God is bigger than him.PRAYER: United States has always been a place of relative peace and safety but these past few years many attacks against U.S. have occurred on our own soil. Lord you are greater than any attacks against this Christian nation. When I start to fear help me to read my Bible more and to pray. In Jesus' name. Amen.
