TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
Build up your defense against Satan’s attacks by thanking and praising God for His grace and goodness. He has your back when the devil comes against you. You and the Lord are a majority!
Are you ready for a demonic attack on your thought life? Many of us think we are, when in reality, the devil has a head start.
Remember, he’s been messing with minds for around 6,000 years so he’s good at it, like really good. If you think you can withstand a sneak attack from the father of lies himself, stop and think about the number of pastors, evangelists and upright Christians he has devoured because they didn’t recognize the enemy sneaking past the gates of their mind.
How will you keep evil from taking over your head? You had better armor up!
Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. – Ephesians 6:13
The evil day is coming my friend and you’ve got to have your defenses up, or you will not be able to stand – and He has specifically called you to stand!
God has not called you to “hang in there” because you are vulnerable when you’re hanging from something. You are called to STAND. It does no good to stand if you’re not armored up, so check out exactly how this works.
Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. – Ephesians 6:14-17
Notice all these pieces are defensive except the Sword of the Spirit. That’s because you’re under attack every day and you need to withstand so that you can counterattack with the weapon of the Word. The devil will attack your mind with lustful, jealous, angry, sensual, prideful, greedy, selfish thoughts – all day, every day. Whether you fall for them is up to you.
Be prepared! Suit up and stay standing.
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO GET SERIOUS ABOUT PREPARING FOR THE BATTLE FOR YOUR MIND. FIND OUT WHAT IT TRULY MEANS TO PUT ON THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD, THEN STAND YOUR GROUND!
