Do you know what God says about you? If you know, do you believe it?
Often we forget that the devil is a created being that attempted to exalt himself above God. He wanted to be superior to only find that he was inferior to God in every way.
The devil studies us as individuals which is how he is able to implement strategies that keep us in cycles. To keep us from knowing the truth about God and our position in the kingdom.
Armor is defined as a protective covering that is used to prevent damage from being inflicted to an object, individual or vehicle by direct contact weapons or projectiles, usually during combat, or from damage caused by a potentially dangerous environment or activity.
To know the truth you must study the word of God. #HolyBible Lack of studying means lack of knowledge and being prone to the attacks of the enemy.
The bible tells us in Ephesians 6:11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes.
We are required to put on the full armor so we aren't left uncovered - leaving access points for the devil to overcome us with temptation and attacks.
What is the belt of truth? Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, Ephesians 6:14
The waist or abdomen area was generally thought to be the seat of emotions. Ladies, we know we can be called emotionally unstable. Have you ever said, "My emotions are all over the place!"
There are seasons in my life I've had to ask God to stabilize my emotions. If you allow your emotions to overtake you - you could risk becoming like Cain and killing your destiny. In Cain's case he killed his brother because he allowed his emotions to overtake him. (Genesis 4:1-8)
Lies are nothing but distractions from the enemy to make us lose focus on the truth and the promises of God.
The bible tells us to armor ourselves with the belt of truth. The devil knows how to toy with over emotions especially us as women and have us reacting based on the lies of the enemy. Lies are nothing but distractions from the enemy to make us lose focus on the truth and the promises of God. Regardless, of how you feel, you must stay grounded in the truth. Don't trust your emotions.
Again, to know the truth, we must study the #HolyBible.
John 8:32 Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.
We as women must know who God is to us and our position in the kingdom. God is our Father and we are His children. When the enemy tries to deceive us, we can stand on the truth and never fall for his deceptive schemes.
John 8:36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
The truth sets you free through spiritual freedom. Don't abandon your spiritual freedom by believing the father of lies. There is no truth in him.
Sister, I don't know what you are facing today but even if your physical circumstances don't change immediately, please know you can still believe that God is your everything. The truth is your are free indeed. There are no chains holding us back because Jesus broke us free from bondage. Let your behavior match your freedom in Christ Jesus because you are standing on His truth. Amen!
