Living From Victory To Victory

“Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭6:11-12‬ ‭NLT‬‬

On Monday and Tuesday, I established that we are in a war and we have been given the right tools to fight with. What most of us don't realize is that the battle is not with people or things, but with Satan. It's a strange concept I know. The wonderful thing about this is, we no longer have to live defeated. This is because God has already won the battle with Satan. That's what the cross was all about. 

    Think about each piece of Armor
  1. The Helmet of Salvation
  2. The Breastplate of Righteousness
  3. The Belt of Truth
  4. The Shoes of Peace
  5. The Sword of the Spirit
  6. The Shield of Faith
  7. Prayer in the Holy Spirit
“Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭6:13‬ ‭NLT‬‬
It's no simple task to stand your ground. Honestly, walking with God is hard enough when we have to deal with our own thoughts Add onto that having to deal with outside forces. but the wonderful thing is that in the midst of our standing our ground, God gave us the Armor to use. As each piece of armor is discussed we will inevitably talk more about the enemy. Thankfully the enemy has been defeated. Praise God. After you understand all that you have in Christ you will be able to walk in life from victory to victory! See you on Monday

Be Blessed
