Armored: The Sword of the Spirit – Episode 162

You’ve probably read this somewhere: 


God is for you, not against you. (Romans 8:31, in case you need the reminder)


You’ve probably heard it in a sermon or maybe from a friend when you were feeling like the dark clouds seem to follow you everywhere.


But let me tell you again: GOD IS FOR YOU, NOT AGAINST YOU.


You may be battling the enemy’s schemes right this very minute, and feeling weary from the fight. Discouraged, distracted, doubtful.


So today’s episode is perfectly time to give you that last, small but mighty, piece of armor: the sword of the Spirit. 


The word for sword used in Ephesians 6:17 actually means dagger – a weapon used for close combat. 


You know, when the enemy is all up in your business and you’re working through (what feels like) hand-to-hand combat. It’s the one tool that is used for both offense and defense. 


Putting on the Armor of God will allow us to do that in any and every situation we may face. It will allow us to reflect God’s love to all those we meet. It empowers us to have that calm and peace in the midst of chaos.  It’s not about asking God to make the battle stop – it’s about standing in the victory of Jesus, and applying that to your business and to your life. It’s about making Him our FOCUS:
