Wednesday In The WORD

Welcome again to Wednesday in the Word! 
I am loving what God is doing in my personal life and those of some of the ladies that has joined me for this amazing Bible Study called, "Your Strong Suit", by Donna Pyle. If you haven't met Donna pop over to http://www.hydratedliving.com/
She is cute as a button...she has that TEXAS Puff hair do
 going on! 
If you'd like to see my prior Wednesday in the Word pop over to
http://creationsbycindyphotography.blogspot.com/2012/03/wednesday-in-word.html 
This Bible Study is a word by word study on Ephesians 6:10-18. Satan is being exposed for who he is and we are learning to how to apply God's Word to our lives to withstand the evil one. 

Ephesians 6:10 instructs us to "put on the whole armor of God". 
WE ARE TO WEAR THE ARMOR.

God's Armor protects us and without it WE ARE IN TROUBLE!

Satan's primary goal is to "TAKE US OUT". The word "hate" sounds strong but you can rest assured that SATAN HATES us! 
He wants us as believers to BE DEFEATED! To BLOW our WITNESS! To become USELESS to the Kingdom of God! 
And...he will do whatever it takes....He IS OUR ENEMY!


The only way that you and I can stand against the schemes of Satan is to Spiritually put on the Armor of God daily!
Donna compared it to "wearing the armor of God as we would wear our clothes".
Just as clothing protects our body so does the Armor of God protect us. I thought about this concept with hunting. All my friends know I like to deer hunt with the husband. When the weather is cold we have to be prepared because we will be sitting in a tree stand somewhere that even a mere gust of wind is almost too much to bear. Knowing this in advance...I go prepared! 
1: I put on my thermal underclothing
2: Heavy Duty socks w/toastie toes, and boots
3: Camo clothes with cap, neck wrap & gloves
4: Jacket
Sounds like a lot of clothing doesn't it? Well, when it's freezing weather and the wind is blowing take my word for it...you are BLESSED to have it! WHY? It protect me from the COLD!
 The effectiveness of God's Armor lies in wearing it!


I love what Donna said in her book. "Wearing God's Armor reminds us of who we are and our purpose".
 
 Get your armor on!!!


Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  4. Thank for sharing this post. Would love to be a part of this study and your class but as you know I can't. However, I can pray that God will continue to bless and fill you and your ladies with Himself as you learn how to apply the armor of God to fight against the enemy. Thanks for sharing this post.

  5. Hi Cindy! What a great post and so much to sink our teeth into! You're so right - satan is out to kill, steel and destroy but we have the promise that 'greater is He who lives in us than he that in in the world.' Oh, that sounds like such a wonderful study!
    Thank you so much for popping in to see me.
    be a sweetie,
    shelia ;)

  7. Love how you used Hunting clothes as an analogy. Being married to a hunter I can relate but also see how important it is that we not only dress for weather purposes to be protected but be DRESSED in the Armor as well. Thanks for this post. Blessings to you....Renee G
