I can’t help but notice that today is “6/12…2020“…. and this morning the Lord reminded me of a key passage of His Word to remember and reflect on and SEE this morning.
Ephesians 6:12 and 13 says this,
“Your hand-to-hand combat is not with human beings, but with the highest principalities and authorities operating in rebellion under the heavenly realms. For they are a powerful class of demon-gods and evil spirits that hold this dark world in bondage. 13 Because of this, you must wear all the armor that God provides so you’re protected as you confront the slanderer, for you are destined for all things and will rise victorious.” –Ephesians 6:12-13 TPT
The world desperately needs this reminder. The world so desperately needs to know the truth and the direction that God has given us in His Word. This is a KEY in the Word of God that reveals to us how to live in this day!
Right now, all “hell” is breaking loose in attempt to hinder this new thing, this new day that God has planned for the earth. Hell won’t win, but it can hinder us if we don’t stand firm in God’s truth.
Every kind of twisted tactic one could imagine is being attempted, and it feels like it’s happening all at once…
But God is bringing His Light to the darkness in this world. ☀️
He is exposing… but does the world have the eyes to SEE the truth?
Oh God, let Your people SEE, let us see what’s being attempted, let us SEE what’s truly trying to happen against us and against You, against Your plans, let us realize, let us see “beyond” and “into.”
And God let us remember Your truth, let us remember to reflect on what Your Word says, let us remember to remind ourselves of Your Word so that we will be reminded to live by Your truth. That we’ll not live in darkness, that we’ll not live blindly, carelessly, in deceit…. but that we’ll live in the light, that we may truly live as “children of light”…
“For you are all children of the light and of the day; we don’t belong to darkness and night.”—1 Thessalonians 5:5
Help us to be able to stand firm against these schemes and attempts of the enemy….
It’s ALL right here…this is it… THIS is our instruction for this day we are living in. Step by step!
Spiritual Warfare (Ephesians 6:10-20 TPT)
10 Now my beloved ones, I have saved these most important truths for last: Be supernaturally infused with strength through your life-union with the Lord Jesus. Stand victorious with the force[a] of his explosive power flowing in and through you.
11 Put on God’s complete set of armor[b] provided for us, so that you will be protected as you fight against the evil strategies of the accuser![c] 12 Your hand-to-hand combat is not with human beings, but with the highest principalities and authorities operating in rebellion under the heavenly realms.[d] For they are a powerful class of demon-gods[e] and evil spirits that hold[f]this dark world in bondage. 13 Because of this, you must wear all the armor that God provides so you’re protected as you confront the slanderer,[g] for you are destined for all things[h] and will rise victorious.
14 Put on truth as a belt to strengthen you to stand in triumph. Put on holiness as the protective armor that covers your heart. 15 Stand on your feet alert, then you’ll always be ready to share the blessings of peace.
16 In every battle, take faith as your wrap-around shield, for it is able to extinguish the blazing arrows coming at you from the Evil One![i] 17–18 Embrace the power of salvation’s full deliverance, like a helmet to protect your thoughts from lies. And take the mighty razor-sharp Spirit-sword[j] of the spoken Word of God.
Pray passionately[k] in the Spirit, as you constantly intercede with every form of prayer at all times. Pray the blessings of God upon all his believers. 19 And pray also that God’s revelation would be released through me every time I preach the wonderful mystery of the hope-filled gospel. 20 Yes, pray that I may preach the wonderful news of God’s kingdom with bold freedom at every opportunity. Even though I am chained as a prisoner, I am his ambassador.”
It’s all right here, isn’t it Lord? You knew we would need this, You know. Thank You for this reminder of Your truth, Lord. ☀️✍?Holy Spirit, I pray that You will draw people to this truth and that hearts will be able to see and know and realize.
