WORD & POWER for TODAY
DON’T GO TO WAR UNDERDRESSED
“Therefore, put on the complete armor of God, so that you will be able to [successfully] resist and stand your ground in the evil day [of danger], and having done everything [that the crisis demands], to stand firm [in your place, fully prepared, immovable, victorious].” Ephesians 6:13 AMP
Pointing the Bible at the devil’s nose in a spiritual warfare will do no harm to the devil; unless the words in that Bible are in your spirit, and on your lips!
Spiritual warfare is a serious matter! While you are at it; the enemy is doing a scan on you, looking for any loophole! That is how battles are fought… and won! It is like football, if a particular team is too strong, the opponent studies properly, checks keenly, for any weak side of that strong team. And once they find it, they strike from there, and most predictably; they score the goals!
For your own safety, take every precept of God seriously. As a Christian, you’re a soldier, not a civilian! You must be clad with the whole munitions to be safe! Truth is a weapon, Faith is a weapon, intercession is a weapon, evangelism is a weapon, salvation is a weapon, the knowledge of God’s word is a weapon, purity and prayerfullness are weapons. Do not trivialize the importance of any of them. Don’t go to war without your belt, your trousers will fall in the midst of the battle! Without your shield, attacks will penetrate! Live ready, stay equipped-wear the whole Armour!
