We are in a fight. One unto the death. Today there will be attacks from the enemy. Tomorrow too. You will deal with critics, saboteurs, controlling people, and haters. Sorry to be so gloomy, but it’s part of being a Christian. It’s also part of being a human. It’s just life. Yeah, Jesus promised we would have tribulations. As the old people used to say, we’re actually soldiers – soldiers in the army of the Lord.
An army of the Lord News Flash
Christians are ready for it all!
If you are not a Christian, you are on the wrong side of life’s fight and completely powerless against the prince of the cosmos.
Conversely, Christians have access to every spiritual resource at our disposal.
Don’t expect us to go down quickly! Christian Woman, we can quickly access a sword to fight (the Word of God) plus many, many more! Hey, I can show you better than I can tell you. Check out your armor!
New International Version (NIV) The Armor of God
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,
15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
Think like a soldier
A soldier always has a strategy, orders, and plan. He or she also has weaponry!
Just like any soldier, you fight with POWERFUL weapons that are mighty to the PULLING DOWN of strongholds and everything that rises against the knowledge of God!
Never let the battle get you down!
Your strategy is to ignore the wicked, petty, or negative people who are not saved. Pray for the weak Christians that allow Satan to use them to attack you. Don’t stoop to their level and fight with “earthly” weapons.
Your orders are clear. Christian Lady, you are to be salt and light in this world and draw others to the Lord! That’s what a good soldier in the army of the Lord does! I’m getting excited as I write each word!
God has an astounding, incredible plan for your life!
All you have to do is know who you are (army of the Lord) and the powers in you (4-star Holy Spirit)! You are God’s girl, the very Holy Spirit of God is inside you! Fight on, Sister!
You got something better than the weapons of Wakanda, you’ve got Jesus Christ! 🙂
Take your place in the army of the Lord, walk in love, and do your thing! Never surrender to the enemy or his lures to be less than who God created you to be!
