Bible Ballistics: BBs #663 Standing, Sitting, Or Sleeping???
I just want to share a word of encouragement today as we see so much going on around us. God has called us to stand fast—but we can only do that as we “stand” in HIM! Here’s my presentation of the passage that I go to daily. I pray that it will help to adjust your focus!
“Finally, my brethren, (now—2 Corinthians 6:2)
be strong in the Lord,
and in the power of
(in God’s Spirit and power-Gal.5:16 &25)
11 Put on the whole armour of God,
(His provision—Philippians 4:13)
that ye may be able to stand
against the wiles of the devil.
(resist—1 Peter 5:8)
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood,
but (not ‘when’ but continually in the battle–
1 Peter 5:9-10)
against the rulers of the darkness
of this world,
against spiritual wickedness
in high places.
(the unseen things—Ephesians 2:1-3)
13 Wherefore take unto you
the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to withstand
in the evil day,
and having done all, to stand.
(persist in God’s light—Romans 13:12)
14 Stand therefore,
(Don’t quit—1 Corinthians 16:13)
having your loins girt about
and having on the breastplate
(Jesus—2 Corinthians 5:21)
15 And your feet shod
with the preparation
of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all,
taking the shield of faith,
wherewith ye shall be able
to quench all the fiery darts
of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation,
and the sword of the Spirit,
which is the word of God:
(Jesus—John 1:1-5, 14 & Hebrews 4:12-13)
18 Praying always
with all prayer
in the Spirit,
(In Jesus—John 15:16)
and watching thereunto
with all perseverance
for all saints;” Ephesians 6:10-18
(Through Jesus our intercessor—John 16:26 & Hebrews 7:25)
May God open our eyes to see beyond this world and “withstand in the evil day”? Suit up my friends, the only victory is in Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen and Amen!!!
