Stand strong

I have been moved by the comments to my post Better Part
Read them here.

So many of us have been shaken and troubled
the enemy is busy whispering, shouting, screaming the same lies to all of us.

It's time to stand strong in Christ, resist the enemy and he will flee.

Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.  James 4:7 NKJV

We are not worthless, useless, shameful or unable
we are beloved children of the most high God!

It is time to listen only to the One Who is Faithful
The One Who is Truth

 If this is war, I will not run
It is time to put our armor on!

Be prepared. You're up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it's all over but the shouting you'll still be on your feet. Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. You'll need them throughout your life. God's Word is an indispensable weapon. In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other's spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out. Ephesians 6:13-18 The Message
