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!
