The enemy will come at you with temptations, your past, shame, depression, distractions and more. His goal is to paralyze, steal, kill & destroy. Believing in God or just being a “good person”, a casual Christian isn’t going to help when he comes knockin.
Walk in Freedom
The bible tells us to keep our armor on and to stay alert for good reason. 💪
“Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 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.
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.
Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” -Ephesians 6
Read God’s word daily. Captivate your thoughts. Declare truth. We have authority in Christ. Surrender. Allow him to heal all the broken pieces. Turn away from temptation. Stay focused. It’s then that you will walk in freedom. 💙
