AREN'T YOU GLAD WE GET DO OVER'S ?? Oh how thankful I am that I am able to take a test over again if I fail in which I often fail. I am thankful we have a loving merciful FATHER AMEN!!
I have fallen more than I care to admit already this year (and will continue "until we all reach ...the whole measure of the fullness of Christ." Eph. 4:13) however thankful because it is making me have to draw closer to God!!! For myself I am learning the importance of daily having the Armor of God on and how it really isn't silly to pray for each piece to be on daily I do it with kids so why not myself well good question. I guess we grow complacent or we get to busy but I am sadly reminded the enemy is not busy he is still prowling waiting to take us out. Satan wants us to feel hopeless but we must remember he is a lier because we belong to God and with God nothing is hopeless.
I have just recently failed and allowed flesh to take over and enter into my blog life and facebook life somewhere along the way the enemy talked me into lowering my shield of faith, and I was then no longer able to extinguish satan's fiery darts. He is very sneaky and uses words to seduce us just as he did to Eve back in the Garden. I am learning we never arrive at a place where we are protected from satans attacks or can fight them off ourselves we must have the WHOLE ARMOR of God on daily every hour of the day. I have prayed long and hard and have been confirmed in decision to contiue on blogging and facebooking HOWEVER I do have a wise accountability partner in which will be reading all future posts before going out so that the likes of the enemy cannot use this outlit to cause division and destruction again I want to be so careful what proceeds out of my mouth and how it comes out never wanting to cause another to stumble in their walk. Father I pray today that you help me to place on the FULL ARMOR of God Lord I pray you place the helment of salvation upon my head , and the breastplate of righteousness,the shield of faith, and the sword of the spirit, along with the belt of truth and the shoes of peace that I may be able to withstand the fiery darts from the evil advesary may you help me stay girded in your truth every second of the day and when I fail cause I will being that I am a work in progress may I not stay down but get right up repent and start again Lord thank you for allowing us to start fresh and giving us many do over's Lord I love and praise you in Jesus Name I pray, Amen!!!
You can find the Armor of God I speak about in Ephesians 6: 10- 18
Also "Pray continually." 1 Thess. 5:17
Until Next Time,
