SPEAK OUT WITH MONICA
We are created in Father God’s image. He breathed life into His creation Adam. To this day we have a void that can only be filled by the Lord, he is the missing piece, drugs, material things, sex, alcohol – cannot fill that void!
So, I ask, why, when we are so intricately made, created in His image, His very breath breathed into Adam…. are we so sinful?!
I know, we have free choice to follow Jesus or to reject Him. Even to follow Him, requires something’s from us.
We are spiritual beings in a body, and there is a spiritual world. if you readEphesians 6:10-18, you will find the answer to the “why” I asked above.
So the first thing we need to do daily is:
“Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day….. get your Bible and read the rest of the verses.
God’s armor brings us triumph/victory over the devil and his evil forces, it’s a shield, a protective covering. It’s the very beating heart of Jesus, it’s His very life.
“Put on the armor”, Paul wrote in his letter to the Romans, Paul said “cloth yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ”. (Romans 13:12-14)
What happens when you do that, He becomes your covering, your hiding place, he shelters you in the storm you are going through. He is your shield. If you come out from under that covering, that is when the enemy has access to you and you can be influenced to make wrong choices. STAY under God’s covering… He promises to never leave you or forsake you!
We are spiritual beings in a body, and there is a spiritual world. if you read Ephesians 6:10-18, you will find the answer to the “why” I asked above.
