It's early and I'm ready to head out. My mission field awaits.
Lives are on the line.
The enemy is ticked.
I'm in the crossfire.
Today I am aware of the battle around me.
Most days I walk around, or sit at my desk, like the victim wondering when I'll find peace.
My minute by minute opportunities pass, while I enjoy my "pity party of the century".
Today is different.
I still want to say, "Whoa is me", but I won't. *Only by the Grace of God*
The armor is in place and my eyes are on His.
The fight is on.
I'm on the winning team!
"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." Eph 6:10-17
In His Name,
