As you know I’ve been preaching about the armour of God recently, so Nunsy reminded me that she wrote a series of DIGs in 2014 about this very topic, and suggested I bring them out, “tweak” them a wee but and then publish. So here we go!
Our enemy has no real power; all he has is deception, but the trouble is that he is very good at it!
He is scheming and wily, and he is doing all he can to deceive mankind.
His only battle plan is to try and win our minds for the purpose of stealing, killing and destroying (John 10 v 10).
He is after how we think, because our life follows our thinking. We go where we think (Proverbs 4 v 23).
If he can get us thinking his way, according to the world and the flesh, then our minds are diverted from the truth of God’s Word.
This is why guarding our hearts (Proverbs 4 v 23), renewing our minds (Romans 12 v 2), and being spiritually minded (Romans 8 v 6), is so important.
If our hearts and minds are full of God and His Word, the enemy can’t touch us.
Right thinking is our defence against the enemy.
Right thinking is our armour and our weapon.
Strength, power and might come directly from right, Godly, Word-based thinking.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord, that knowledge of Your Word gives me strength, power and might”.
Ephesians 6:10…Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might
