Ephesians 6:11 “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”

Leader, I bless you with taking the instruction of God seriously. Whether you are a seasoned follower of Jesus Christ, a newbie or whether you are still checking out the whole ‘Jesus’ thing, makes little difference to the challenges you will experience. The world has not been ‘right’ since the fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden where they daily communed with God face-to-face. All our problems stem from that break in relationship – some are of human origin, either by choice or by evil influence, others originate lock, stock and barrel from evil. I bless you with grabbing hold of the tools that God gave us to be able to stand against evil. I bless you with having your waist girded with truth, with righteousness as your breastplate to protect your heart, your feet shod with the preparation of the message of peace, carrying the shield of faith to repel whatever negative or untruthful thing anyone hurls your way, protecting your mind by putting on the helmet of salvation, and ably wielding the word of God as sword (Ephesians 6:13-17). I bless you with not get tired of fighting against evil which seeks to divert you from the task God has ordained for you in your position. Take courage that you are not alone and that the consummate Leader of the Ages watches over you.

Hebrews 13:5 “Let your character or moral disposition be free from love of money and be satisfied with your present circumstances and with what you have; for God Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. I will not, I will not, I will not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let you down, relax My hold on you! Assuredly not!”
