Overcomers | Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day: “Overcomers!”
Matthew 12:48-50, Ephesians 6:10-20, Romans 12:21, 1 John 4:4
Are we fighting the WRONG BATTLES and the wrong people, with the WRONG WEAPONS?
v.10 “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your STAND against the devil’s schemes.
v.12 “For our struggle is NOT against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the SPIRITUAL FORCES of evil in the Heavenly realms.”
v.13 “Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the DAY of EVIL comes, you may be able to STAND your ground, and after you have done everything to STAND.”
v.14 “STAND FIRM then, with the belt of TRUTH buckled around your waist, and the breastplate of RIGHTEOUSNESS in place,
v.15 “and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the GOSPEL of PEACE.
v.16 “In addition to all this, take up the shield of FAITH, with which you can EXTINGUISH all the flaming arrows of the evil one.”
v.17 “Take the helmet of SALVATION, and the sword of the SPIRIT, which is the WORD of God.”
v.18 “And pray in the SPIRIT on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be ALERT and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s PEOPLE.”
v.19 Pray also for me, that whenever I SPEAK, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the GOSPEL…Pray that I may declare it fearlessly as I should.”
The best WORRIERS can become the best WARRIORS!
You, dear children and mothers, are from God and have overcome evil, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. – 1 John 4:4
