3 things that hinder us from being strong in God:
1- Insecurity- a house divided against itself cannot stand- An unwise woman tears down her own house. We are either building or tearing down. As a man thinks in heart so is he: What is the conversation of your heart?
2- Distraction– Life is busy. We forget to make the time to feed ourselves & grow spiritually. We begin to depend on someone else to feed us prepared spiritual “fast food”.
3-Discouraging voices – We must connect to those things that will encourage loyalty of heart. Who&What are the voices that we are listening to? Do they build or tear down the things that are important to you? (ie: church, family)
The Armor of God – Ephesians 6:10-18
New International Version (NIV) 10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
