31 The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the Lord.
Every day we are at battle. The Evil one would love for us to put down our guard and allow him to rule with fear, anxiety, hate, and leave us feeling powerless.
Ephesians 6:10-18, describes the “Armor of God” that we must pick up daily to prevent the evil one from taking over our lives. We must be diligent because he diligently seeks ways into our life. As some of you may remember, I was recently diagnosed with AFIB. I became afraid of doing anything. My digestive track even stopped working, this combined with the pain from muscle spasms caused me to one seek help and two realize that although I thought I was leaning on God, I was allowing fear to rule my life. It has been a long couple of months. I was living minute by minute afraid that my pulse would elevate (and it was) and then I would die a horrible painful death. It has only been a few weeks since I realized that my fear was making me worse and I m feeling tons better. My fasting blood sugar is back down to under 100 which although I am still not able to check it without fear striking, I am certain that my blood pressure is lower. My digestive track is starting to function normally. I have returned to putting on the ARMOR OF GOD.
