Recently I attended a prayer conference. There was something taught that impacted me, so I wanted to share it.
We know we are not to be ignorant of Satan’s devices and perhaps sometimes we wonder where the enemy may attack next. In Ephesians 6, the Lord gives us the Armor of God. In doing so, He is showing us the areas He knows that needs protection. Recall the armor and think of this: (helmet of) salvation, (breastplate of) righteousness, (belt of) truth, (feet shod with the gospel of) peace, (shield of) faith and (sword of) spirit. Now I know where I might be attacked: salvation, righteousness, truth, peace, faith and spirit. Perhaps the Devil looks at which area we are weakest and that’s where he tries to attack.
Thinking about that I realized I am probably often vulnerable in peace. In short, I worry too much. And the enemy of my soul steals my peace. Since I know the area he is going to attack, since I have weapons for that area, I purpose to make this area stronger by finding verses on peace, covering my mind with the blood of Jesus, and binding any spirits trying to steal my peace. Think of an area I mentioned and see if there is an area in which you’re vulnerable. God will help you fortify that area. He already equipped you with the armor for it.
Have a blessed week.
