Stay Ready!! 

Catching up on some action movies on Netflix, and my husband and I settled on Avengers. As I watched the movies I was fascinated with captain America’s shield. Whenever he would raise his shield in battle it deflected the enemy with such power. Nothing was able to penetrate his shield!!

I could not help but correlate how the Bible talks about the armor of God, and more specifically our shield of faith. Our weapons are mighty through God and only through Him!! It’s not a matter of “if” things will come to try and defeat us, but when. We must remain on guard and ever ready. We must remain diligent in putting on our armor and utilizing it each day. We don’t handle battles with more ease unless we commit to building our faith in the “off season .” Will you do that? And perhaps your preparation is not just for you, but God may want you to use your armor to help another sister in battle. We are all in the army of the Lord and there is only one enemy that comes to steal, kill, and destroy!! We are always in a spiritual battle whether we realize it or not. Stay ready and stay in position!! Continue to put up your shield of faith, trusting in the One who has called us out of darkness into His marvelous Light!

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. -Peter 5:8 (NIV)
