 Joshua 1:8
“This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success”

As I get closer to God and see more of the world through His eyes, my heart is very heavy. The fact that there are so many saying that they are walking with Christ however can not see when the enemy has them surrounded.

I sit back and think to myself ” How can this be?” Are they fully equipped to fight off the enemy? Are they seeking God fully?

John 10:10 

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”

Because the enemy only comes to steal, kill and destroy, he makes everything look so good that if we do not put on God’s armor daily, we will be deceived

The enemy is always out there sitting and waiting for the right time to devour us.  To only way to fight him off is to know what Gods word says about every part of our life.

  • Marriage
  • Parenting
  • Sex
  • Money
  • Serving
  • Obedience
  • Godly Wife/Husband
  • False Prophets
  • Humility
  • Forgiveness
  • Being Single
  • Homemaking

And there are so many more. 

Studying every single day and knowing who God is through Jesus Christ is the only way to fight off the enemy when he comes. The enemy wants to set up ways to hinder our walk with God. If we are not seeking Him fully, the enemy WILL deceive us.

Here are a few tips to stay in step with God and becoming fully equipped for when the enemy arises:

  • Seek God first in EVERYTHING
  • Stay in constant prayer
  • Meditate on Gods word day and night
  • Do not take someones word on what they say
  • Search out Gods word and see for yourself what God says 
  • Confide in someone that walks closely with God

Being fully equipped is VERY important. Sin is becoming thicker and thicker while the world becomes more and more desensitized!  Don’t get caught up in the enemies game, become fully equipped with Gods word.

Ephesians 6:10-20″ Finally, my brethren, 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, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore,

  • having girded your waist with truth,
  • having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and
  • having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
  • above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
  • And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;

praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints — and for me… 

Every day brings us closer to the end, and Matthew warns us in Matthew 7:15, that there will be false prophets to arise in sheep clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.

What is hindering you from knowing God fully? 
What can you do today to become fully equipped to fight off the enemy?
Is there someone or anything that you look to before God?
Pray and ask God to reveal to you anyone or anything that is hindering you from knowing Him better. Remove all distractions that are holding you back from His word. Break any bondage that is present so that you may see things clearly. Give you discernment to know when the enemy is attacking. In Jesus name, Amen
