Sept 3 - - The armor is God’s armor.

Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

The first thing that we see here is that this is God's Armor. It is by God’s armor that we will be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

I heard it once said that after I have put on all the armor that I will look so much like Jesus that the devil won't know if it's Jesus or if it is me and I don't think the devil is going to mess around with Jesus.

What do you think?

Pray for revival. - - Today let us pray that our church family will be united in our worship of God, fellowship with one another, and ministry to the community. Ask God to help believers confront and remove issues and problems that threaten this unity.

August 30 - - Finally, my brethren.

Eph 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

Paul begins the word finally. Now when the word finally is used it is in conclusion to what has already been said. So putting on the Armor of God is the final thing that we are to do. It is to be done after all the other things have been done.

So what are the other things that are to be done?

Eph 4:2 Be humble, gentle, and patient. Show your love by being tolerant with one another.
Eph 4:25 tell the truth to other believer, because we are all members together in the body of Christ.
Eph 4:26 If you become angry, do not let your anger lead you into sin, and do not stay angry all day.
Eph 4:28 stop robbing and start working, in order to earn an honest living for yourself and so you will be able to help the poor.
Eph 4:29 Do not use harmful words, but only helpful words, the kind that build up and provide help to those who hear you.
Eph 4:31 Get rid of all bitterness, passion, and anger. No more shouting of insults, no more hateful feelings of any kind.
Eph 5:4 Do not use language that is obscene, profane, or vulgar. Rather you should give thanks to God.
Eph 5:11 Have nothing to do with the worthless things that people do, things that belong to the world of darkness. Not only are we not to do these things but we are to expose them to the world of light.

In other words we need to take some things off before we put the Armor on. In other words we need to be confessed up but not only confessed up but we need to also enter into repentance

Repentance means to change directions. Stop doing before we start doing.

What do you think?

Pray for revival. - - Today let us pray that strained or broken relationships, among families and friends as well as acquaintances, will be restored.

August 29 - - We are to put on the full armor of God.

Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of
this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Our war is not with humans however Satan constantly uses people to carry out his plan.

How do we fight that which you cannot see? The bible tells us that we do this by putting on the Armor of God. The Word of God gives us step by step instructions in how we are to apply the Armor.

The first thing it tells us is to
Eph 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

So the victory depends on how close we are walking with Jesus. Our success in winning the battle is understanding that it is not by our strength it is by the strength of the Holy Spirit living in us.

“If God be for us who can be against us”

What do you think?

Pray for revival. - - Today let us pray that people throughout the city will open their hearts to the voice of God, and grasp that He has a loving and eternal plan for their lives.

August 28 – Mary hath chosen that good part

Luke 10
41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:
42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

Often times in our Christian walk we find ourselves cumbered. It seems as if God is a thousand miles away. Our spiritual tank seems to be empty. That is the time when we need to do what Mary did. Mary stopped everything and found a place at the feet of Jesus.

Jesus told Martha, Jesus said, “Martha thou art careful and troubled about many things but one thing is needful, Jesus said that this is “needful” one thing that we need. It goes on to say “and Mary hath chosen that good part”. Mary found the good part of the Christian walk she found a place at the feet of Jesus. She found a place where she could hear Jesus speak. Mary found a place where she could hear God speak to her.

We can become so involved it our ministry that we often find ourselves no longer at the feet of Jesus. What we need to understand is that we should never leave that place at the feet of Jesus. We need to understand that we do not do the ministry for Jesus it is Jesus ministering through us.

There is an old hymn that says “Make Me a Channel of Blessing”. We are not the blessing we are the channel by which the blessings come. The works of a Christian is to believe and allow God to do His works through us. We are to simply find our place at the feet of Jesus.

Let go and let God.

August 27 – Martha was cumbered about much

Luke 10
40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.

It says that Martha was busy about the work of serving and she became cumbered. Now we are all called to serve. We are told over again and again that we need to be about the Lords work of serving but as Martha we too often find ourselves cumbered.

Now what does the word cumbered mean. The dictionary tells us that it means to be overloaded, to be burdened, to be inconvenienced and or trouble.

Doing what is good serving the Lord and becoming cumbered. How can this be? Have you ever taught a Sunday School class or served in another ministry and felt that you needed a break that you have nothing more to give. You felt your “Spiritual tank was empty”.

Yes I suppose we all have. That is when we need to find a time and a place where we can have our “Spiritual tank refueled”. Mary was setting at the feet of Jesus being served the living Words of Jesus.

How are we served the Living Words of Jesus today?

I had a pastor who would say. “The table is set come and dine on God’s Living Word.

What do you think?

Pray for revival. - - Today let us pray for our Churches. If revival is going to come it will come through the believer.
2 Chronicles 714 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

August 26 – Filling your Spiritual Tank

Luke 10
39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word.
40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.

The other day several of us were asked this question? How do you go about "Refueling Your Spiritual Tank?" This is a good question and I can say that I have asked myself this question many times. I cannot ask myself this question without thinking about Luke’s Gospel chapter 10 looking at Martha who seemed to be having the same problem.

What Martha was doing was good. She was serving Jesus. I have found that it takes both serving and being served to make a complete Christian. Martha was serving Mary was being served. Mary was being served the living Words of Jesus. We all need to spend time at the feet of Jesus being served His Living Word.

What do you do when you find your Spiritual tank empty?

What do you think?

Pray for revival. - - Today let us pray that members of the congregation will convey a strong witness of the gospel to their community, through integrity, love, and godliness.

August 23 - - Psalm 139 - David’s prayer of Praise #6

Psalm 139:11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.

When I was a kid I use to be afraid of the darkness till my mother told me that the darkness was like light to God. So I figure if God can see everything is in the darkness then I would be safe because what I could not see God could see.

In the middle of our problems we often see nothing but darkness but God can see the light and He always sees the way out.

What do you think?

Pray for revival. - - Today let us pray for our city. Pray that God will bless the efforts of business leaders and owners throughout the city, that economic conditions and employment will be strong.

August 21 - - Psalm 139 - David’s prayer of Praise #4

Then David says
Psalm 139:7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?

Where do you hide from a God that knows everything about you?

David says if I go way up into the highest part of the heavens, God you are there; if I dig a hole and go into the deepest part of the earth, God you are there. Then He says if I fly on the wings of the dawn, and go to the far side of the sea or the other side of the world, God is even there

This can be a good thing because it goes on to say, even there in the highest place or in the lowest place, even on the other side of the world, God you will guide me and take care of me. Your right hand will hold me.

It is great to know that God is always with me. It is great to know that I am never alone.

Hebrews 13:5 5 - - - - “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
What do you think?

Pray for revival. - - Today let us pray for our city. Pray that God will provide help and protection to law enforcement and firefighters throughout the city.

August 20 - - Psalm 139 - David’s prayer of Praise #3

Psalm 139:6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.

Our mind is too small to really understand God. It is like trying to put a watermelon into a Dixie cup. It's just not going to fit.

We try so hard to understand who God is but the truth is we never will. So what we can't understand we must except by faith.

What do you think?

Pray for revival. - - Today let us pray for our city. Pray that God will give wisdom and direction to the mayor, city council, and all other city leaders.

August 19 - - Psalm 139 - David’s prayer of Praise #2

Psalm 139:3-5 3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.
4 For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether.
5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.

God knows everything going on in our lives. God knows where we are and God knows how we feel. God knows when we’re not feeling good and when we feel great. God knows when we are lonely and when were depressed and sad. God is aware of everything going on in our lives

I think David sums it up in this next verse when he says “Such knowledge is too wonderful for me to even understand and too lofty for me to attain”.

What do you think?

Pray for revival. - - Today let us pray for our city that the people throughout the city will open their hearts to the voice of God, and grasp that He has a loving and eternal plan for their lives.

August 16 - - Psalm 139 - David’s prayer of Praise #1

Psalm 139:1 O lord, thou hast searched me, and known me.

David begins his prayer of praise by praying “God hast searched me and known me”. Are you ready to do as David did and open your whole life up to God? To allow God to search you and know you. Are their things in your life that you would rather not allow God to know? Will if there is I have some bad news for you God already know about them.

I think that this is what makes this Psalm so fantastic. It tells us that God knows everything about us.

So did David give God an invitation to search him and know him? No I don’t think so. It says that God already searched him and God already knows him the same way He already knows us.

What do you think?

Pray for revival. - - Today let us pray that our church services will be marked by displays of supernatural power, be it in healings, spiritual gifts, and lives that are dramatically changed by Jesus Christ.
