Onward Christian Soldier!

Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. Ephesians 6:16

Many reading this may be very familiar with the Christian hymn 'Onward Christian Soldier' where it says "marching into war". We are indeed daily marching into a battlefield. This world is not our home. We are strangers and aliens in this land and the enemy is wanting to take us out.

There is much evidence in our world today of the enemies attacks when it comes to killing Christians in foreign lands, ISIS attacks on our own soil, the taking of innocent life in the womb, uprising against police, and many other things. 

When a soldier goes into battle he needs to be prepared and armed if you will. The proper equipment is worn to protect the soldier from the bullets fired by the enemy. Our preparation is the word of God. You read it daily to prepare your heart and be able to focus on taking out the enemy,  which in this case is Satan. Don't be fooled. As it says in 1 Peter 5:8 "Satan is roaming around like a raging lion seeking whom he may destroy." Be prepared to face the battles ahead. 

PRAYER: Dear Lord I seek to always be prepared for daily war with Satan. I know he hates prayer and despises truth. He is a destroyer and divider. Well he can't have me or my family. In Jesus' name. Amen.
