Where do I cross over?
This weeks ‘More On Us Monday’ post is all about recognizing when we slip over to the opposite side of our wonderful God-partnered lives. It is easy for us to slip into the habit of self-reliance or absorption. Let’s be wise to these mind traps early on. Let’s eliminate the strength of their lies by putting on the armor of our God before any of these tempting thoughts can take root.
Use the table below to consider places where you may slip, or what God wants for you, and where it is written.
The Armor of God
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 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. 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. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 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. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 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. Ephesians 6:10-18
As our thoughts slip to the other side, call out the owner of those thoughts… and know it isn’t you. Then call on your Father and cover yourself in His armor… and truth.
