I was reminded recently that we have an enemy, but I was also reminded that this enemy is already overcome! Here are some planks of truth for us to stand on while putting on our spiritual armor ~ (Ephesians 6:10-18)
Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
~ 1 Peter 5:8
Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful. ~ John 14:27
For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!” The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him. ~ Romans 8 :14-17
Thou wilt keep in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee. ~ Isaiah 26:3
Standing in Him, by His grace!
