11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
The struggles and challenges that we face are from the unseen evil world, which oppose everything and everyone that is of God. We are fighting against the principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness and against spiritual hosts of wickedness.
We need to protect ourselves from them by wearing the full armor of God i.e. truth, righteousness, the gospel, faith, salvation, the Word of God, and prayer (Ephesians 6:13-17).
When we don’t put it on, we deceive ourselves and turn against flesh and blood, which is our own brother who is created in the image of God.
Let’s always wear the full armor of God and walk in victory.
You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.
Jesus spoke these words to His disciples who were already believers and, they were chosen and appointed to produce good and long lasting fruit. The disciples followed and abided in Him.
Have you ever wondered how you got here? You follow Jesus and abide in Him and here you are chosen to bear fruit that would remain.
When we are living in spirit and truth we not only are fruitful to His praise and glory but also guided by His Holy Spirit to pray into His will and character.
Let’s live our lives fruitful for His kingdom because He chose you and me.
‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’
God speaks to us at all times. We call to Him when we pray. But, are we hearing Him. And are we receiving His answers.
God knows our problems even before we pray. He speaks to us, if we could just hear Him beyond our disappointments and pain.
When you call His name, He will answer you. Set aside your plans and agenda, and focus on learning His voice even more.
Take a moment and concentrate on what He reveals to you and gives you knowledge and understanding of your situation, which we don’t know.
Lets focus to learn His voice that shows great and mighty things.
