The BIBLE states, “Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with the truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; AND YOU FEET SHOD WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE…” (Ephesians 6:13-16)
BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:
If you think your personal constitution alone can fight the invisible enemy, YOU ARE OVERLY MISTAKEN! Just think about this for one moment. Perhaps, you pay bills on time but unforeseeable things happen. For example, a family member or friend calls you and they are crying about the rent that’s due. Now, you’ve loaned out $1,000 bucks which may or may not be returned to you in a timely manner. THEN, your washing machine breaks down AND your car needs four (4) new tires AND new brakes! ON TOP OF ALL THAT, your teenage son or daughter wants a new wardrobe, the new Apple phone, and starts acting up. The little boy or little girl that charmed you is now a MONSTER! Unfortunately, you cannot fly to the moon because they are not taking reservations.
There are times you feel like taking the lawn mower and cutting a Mohawk track on your own head because of the trouble the devil brings your way! Do you ever feel like Prophet JOB (who was tortured by the devil) or talking crazy like his wife? For certain, there are days you don’t want to look at yourself in the mirror. ARE YOU LISTENING? There are days, you wonder is GOD fixing to take me home to Heaven?
Honey, you’ve got to put on the WHOLE ARMOR of GOD in order to stand. If you don’t, you just might be on CNN tonight because that old dragon will rise up in you and you might take the whole neighborhood hostage! The older Saints use to say, “You don’t want to see my other side!” To avoid smoking bombs on the soles of your feet, “YOUR FEET MUST BE SHOD WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE…” WE ALL NEED THE LORD JESUS! What’s on the bottom of your feet? Do you carry peace into the workplace, church, restaurants, and to the homes of your family and friends? ARE YOU ACTING IN NAME ONLY AS A CHRISTIAN? On the other hand, are you the one who brings hell into the atmosphere of others? This Blog (as all of my messages) is applicable to all of us, especially to Constance Lee!
Have a Blessed Day!
