Jesus promises us that the peace that He gives is a peace that the world cannot take away and it's a peace that surpasses understanding. This peace is a part of whole armor of God.
One of the critical pieces of the whole armor of God is the Breastplate of Righteousness. But do you know what that really means? Do you know what vital organs it protects? Listen and learn!
One of the most important pieces of God's armor is the belt of truth. Everything flows out from truth. God's truth is absolutely necessary if we are to win the spiritual conflict with the devil who Jesus described as a liar and the father of lies.
God provides you his child everything you need to be successful in your daily battles with your spiritual enemy. God gives you strength, God gives you armor and God gives you knowledge.
The moment you became God's child a target was place on you! How can you as God's child stand against the schemes of the devil? By being strong in the strength of the Lord and putting on the whole armor of God.
Does the Bible teach you as a Christian to simply let go and let God do it all for you? Or do you have a responsibility to work out your own salvation?
Paul commands every believer to "be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might". His command requires faith, faith that God's strength is great enough to deal with whatever battle we face.
Do you believe that God's strength is available to you as an ordinary Christian whose battles are anything other than ordinary? You should because it is!
Many Christians are unaware and therefore unprepared for spiritual warfare. But that need not be the case. God has provided every believer with all the information they need to prepare for the fight. But God has provided more than information, He has provided us with strength for the fight!
As the study of Daniel concludes, the book closes by giving believers a dose of reality. The book in total provides us with a reality check.
