Fellow believers, if you are sensing spiritual “heaviness” today, be reminded that our battle is not against flesh and blood! There is a spiritual battle raging in the heavenlies and our battle armor is clearly defined in Ephesians 6:
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist on the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. 14 Stand firm therefore, having belted your waist with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having strapped on your feet the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
If you are sensing that heaviness, make it a day of prayer and fasting. God is fully in control of what happens in our nation’s capital and around the world. He is also fully in control of our lives. But let’s be obedient to our Commander in Chief! As war rages in realms unseen, let’s stand firm, fully fitted with the armor of God.
Join me at the foot of the cross today.
