I really had NO CLUE when I started (3 months ago) GODSFRUITFUL.NET that I would find such encouragement and support! This is proof of God’s command to make disciples of ourselves and spread His Word. I’m amazed at how God uses the gifts and talents of His people to connect and support others. I have learned a lot of great insight from my fellow blogger friends, as well as being encouraged. I just want to say thank you for taking the time to read and continue building up God’s Kingdom.
A BIG THANK YOU to the people who have ask me to post on Facebook as a means to help others grow in their daily walk. As Christians we plant the seed and God waters and grows it. I usually send from my Godsfruitful site, so please know I appreciate you, although I may not be on FB daily:) I’ve been told that many of you are reading quietly and take encouragement with you without a trace that you’ve been on the page, that makes me happy that you can be encouraged at a level that is comfortable for you:)) God’s way should be simple and peaceful! God Bless you ALL!!
Did you know that Prayer is part of the FULL Armour of God? It is!!
While participating in doing my homework for the War Room Bible study, I’ve come to understand this important aspect. I count six pieces of the armor, but prayer makes seven. Most of us know that in the Bible the number seven represents completion or perfection. I’d say that prayer truly is both! 🙂
In Ephesians 6:10-17, we are told that in the Christian life we battle against “principalities and powers.” (the powerful evil forces or fallen angels headed by satan who is a vicious fighter, see 1 Peter 5:8). To withstand the attacks, we must depend on God’s strength and use every piece of His armour. Paul is not only giving this counsel to the church, the body of Christ, but to all individuals within the church. The whole body needs to be armed.
As we do battle against “the rulers of the darkness of this world,” fight in the strength of the church, whose power comes from the Holy Spirit.
One does not commonly equate prayer with battle attire, but it is no accident that Paul commands believers to pray when engaging in spiritual warfare.
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.
One way to pray constantly is to make quick, brief prayers our habitual response to every situation we meet throughout the day. Another way is to order our life around God’s desires and teachings so that our very life becomes a prayer
FRUITFUL OBSERVATION: We don’t have to isolate ourselves from other people and from daily work in order to pray regularly. We can make our prayer our life and our life a prayer while living in a world that needs God’s powerful influence.
Let’s remember that we have a POWERFUL WEAPON and that we can use it today and every day! 🙂
