Armor of God

The armor of God is necessary in our lives more than ever! I don't know about you, but here lately, I feel as if I have been tried and tested in my commitment to my Lord.

I have had "friends" try to lead me and my family down a path of sin. They have tried to corrupt us from the inside. And it's about time it stopped.

Without giving too many details to keep this family friendly, we had a wake up call last night that I'm sure was from the Lord. Why, you ask? Because it finally hit us between the eyes! We want no part of these people! We felt that by trying to be nice and sweet to them, we could possibly win them to the Lord. In this case, they were testing our commitment to our Lord. And that's not going to happen. Not in this house.

I want to say this as a warning to other families out there. Satan is out to attack your families anyway he can! Be on guard. Watch. And be ever vigilant. Becase just as soon as you turn around, your family could be gone and you are left sitting there with no idea what happened. Watch!

Ephesians 6:10-18
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,
