Armoured Up

Archive for the tag “Ephesians 6”

One Day is Today!

I heard a growl and a great commotion coming from my backyard this morning.  Thinking that there was an intruder back there, I ran to the door, imageonly to witness Mocha, my 50 pound Lab being cornered and bullied by Daisy, my Maltese.  I stood for several minutes watching as Mocha ran away, hid and cowered behind trees,  taking a few tentative steps, only to be pushed back as Daisy, all six pounds of her, charged towards her target.

It’s so obvious to everyone except for Mocha that she, with one swipe or a wag of her thick tail, can knock Daisy senseless….and still Mocha runs, hides and tip toes around her.  Daisy is running it!

And that, friends, is a picture of the believer who does not know the power of God in them.  Always running, hiding and cowering as the enemy lashes out and backs them in a corner, pounding away.

One day, Mocha will realize how strong she is, she’ll mature and won’t be so fearful.  She will exercise that power and the tables will at last be turned.

Is today that day for you?  Make today your “one day.”

“A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.” Ephesians 6:10-11

Woman Warrior

I am a Woman Warrior
I’m proud of who I am
I stand against wars big and small
my weapon in my hand

A helmet of salvation
secured upon my head
Reminds me who my Father is
and all He’s ever said
And on my chest, a breastplate
of righteousness secured
To guard my heart, to keep me from
the lies I’ve never heard

I am a Woman Warrior
Around my waist is truth
I live it…speak it…know it…do it
In every way always pursue it
My shoes are ones of peace
They keep me rooted and prepared
to come against my enemy
firm footed, never scared

I am a Woman Warrior
My shield of faith is raised
No weapon formed will ever win
I will remain unscathed

I am a Woman Warrior
The Word is in my mouth
With skill, precision, confidence…
I wear the devil out!
Ephesians 6:13-18
