Seeing God’s Work in Our Lives | 01

AUTHOR: Holy Scripture

READ:

Read or listen to Ephesians 6:10-18.

Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by his vast strength. Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this darkness, against evil, spiritual forces in the heavens. For this reason take up the full armor of God, so that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having prepared everything, to take your stand. Stand, therefore, with truth like a belt around your waist, righteousness like armor on your chest, and your feet sandaled with readiness for the gospel of peace. In every situation 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. Pray at all times in the Spirit with every prayer and request, and stay alert with all perseverance and intercession for all the saints.

How does awareness of the spiritual world (i.e. spiritual forces of both good and evil) help you face your daily battles?

The written Scripture is CSB, however, the audio Scripture is ESV.

FOCUS:

When have you felt dead and unloved this week? When have you felt alive and loved this week? Pay attention to your body as you answer these questions.

PRAY:

Ask the Holy Spirit to meet you in the places of brokenness and joy that you identified.

    Pay attention to your body… Sometimes feeling my body and listening to my own soul is the hardest.
