Wrestling Back My Peace
In crisis, how do you define your faith? Having weathered multiple storms, I’ve learned…
WARNING-you may need to clutch dem pearls…
Everybody can’t handle storms. When they come, if I ain’t crying, nobody else gets to.
I Do Not Have Time to Hold any Hands.
It means that ish is serious. It’s all hands on deck for those in need; and while they are in need, they exist at the center of my Universe.
God is expected to deliver on Those Promises, on The Word of God, and I mean that thang. And I mean now.
I have always called it Warrior faith. It is not soft. It can can be inelegant. It is effective. It is not for everyone.
The Armor of God
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.A nd pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.Ephesians 6:10-18 New International Version (NIV)
