Submission and Obedience


"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places." Ephesians 6:12

God knew all about today when it was still yesterday. He saw NOW coming way back at the start of your walk with Him. When He called you to Himself, He knew what you would face RIGHT NOW. He has not been caught unaware!

God has been preparing you to live victoriously in and through this battle you face ever since. You have the necessary equipment to STAND against the enemy:

    The helmet of salvation;
    The breastplate of righteousness;
    The sandals of the Gospel of peace;
    The loin protection of truth;
    The shield of faith;
    The sword of the Spirit, God's word;
    The empowering of prayer with Him.

The time has come for you to put all your training and armament to work. It's the real deal. This is warfare of the most serious kind, but you will come through it victoriously! Stand for righteousness. Stand for God! Keep every inch of the ground you have taken from the enemy. Cede nothing! Never compromise with evil!

You are not the only one engaged in the fight! You have allies who are standing firm just like you are! Receive their encouragement and lift them up, in return.

Do not count your life dear! If that's what it takes, give your all for God's sake and His honor and glory. A crown of life waits on the other side! Having done all, STAND! Heaven, just beyond, is forever!
