Wednesday in the Word-Bullet Proof

Today is just one of those days! Do you ever have those days when you seem to be "JUST SICK" at how Satan attacks the children of God? And...we're none exempt from the attacks of the evil one. Matter of fact if you are a Christian he wants you out of the picture especially if you are making a difference for the kingdom of God. 

Seems here lately that everywhere I turn I am hearing story after story of how Satan is at work in the lives of so many. Marriages are on the brink of destruction. Families are being torn apart. People are walking away from their faith to trust an unknown God of some kind. Faithful, long time church members now sitting on their couches instead of sitting in a pew at their church. Children rallying against their parents. The list goes on and on. Satan is alive and roaming this earth seeking whom he can devour. 

I read a true story once about a motorcycle policeman that saw a red pick-up truck speed through a stop sign. He turned on his lights and managed to get the man to pull over. As the policeman began to walk up to the drivers window he hears the driver say out loud, "The cop already knows". The driver then reached for his gun that he had just used to rob a store. The office said, Good morning sir, may I see your.....he never finished the sentence. The driver fired his gun just inches away from the officer's chest knocking him seven feet away. Seconds later, the criminal was shocked to see the officer stand up. The criminal said, "Don't shoot as he threw his gun and stolen money out of the window of his truck. 

WHAT SAVED the policeman's life?
Dozens of layers of super strong fabric used for bullet proof vest. The bullet proof vest stopped the bullets.  

If the officer had not had on his bullet proof vest it would have cost him his life. Without our spiritual armor on we cannot stand under the attacks of Satan. Just as the vest was a defense for the officer so is the armor of God our defense. 

The Word of God says,


All the more I keep hearing in my spirit...be alert...be alert...be alert




Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  4. Cindy,
    Our Faith and closeness to God must be nurtured every single hour of the day. You and I have these precious grandchildren which must be guided and protected from the darkness that is an ever growing presence in our lives.

  6. If we are able to recognize that it is Satan and ask God to help us, He does! He gives us the strength to resist and fight against the power of Satan. I love your posts, Cindy, thank you so much for sharing.

  7. Resisting evil is a daily struggle but just recognizing it when it creeps into our lives is half the battle. Studying the Word of God gives us the insight and strength we need to see evil for what it is and walk away.

  9. Hi, Cindy!
    Powerful message here. I know you have a soft spot in your heart for families and pray for others. Me too and my heart hurts at what the enemy does in so many lives. You have good advice. I put my armor on every morning. When I go to bed I even keep it on! Bullet proof vest...great visual!

    Luv,
    Mary

  10. Amen, my friend! We certainly do need to be alert in this day and age...and wearing our armor!

  11. What a story, Cindy! I really do believe God put on my armor a few times when I forgot. Satan is on the attack and is going to town now more than ever. My heart just breaks when I see all that is going on now in Baltimore. Satan is having a hay day. We have to really put on our armor and keep our country in our prayers.
    Blessings,
    Shelia ;)
