What affect would it have on your day if the first thought that went through your mind when you first opened our eyes in the morning was “God I know you are with me and that me being FULLY ALIVE today will bring you great joy and glory.
But with that we also must acknowledge there is an Enemy who will stop at nothing to undermine us living that out today.
As so many have eloquently said in so many Holy Spirit filled sermons that I’ve listened to…
THE BATTLE IS IN OUR MIND
Much like being in a raft paddling upstream – there is no such thing as “taking time off”. If you stop paddling for even a moment the current rapidly takes you backwards.
Each and every day we must awaken with the Hope of Christ “Fully Alive” within us and drop any naivety that “maybe today the enemy won’t hurl shells at me”.
Be intentional about armoring up each and every morning and be expectant that the glory of God through our living FULLY ALIVE will surely come to pass.
PUT ON THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD
Ephesians 106:10-13 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against [e]flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm
We are going to jump into “man fully alive” and “the war” in week three (May 18) this week – you don’t want to miss this!
Blessings in Christ,
