God Prevails Against the Enemy!

Do you ever feel like Satan is just attacking and on the prowl? All of us need to remember that he will do all he can to tear down the good things that God is doing in lives. If you feel that you are under attack....don't fear!

We have a Mighty God that we serve and He is greater than our enemy! Let's remember the Armor of God! 1 Peter 5:8 teaches that we need to..."Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour." I like what Ephesians 6:10 & 11 says, "Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil." If you read on in this section of scripture, it says that if we take up the WHOLE Armor of God we will be able to "withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand."

Let's ALL take these parts up: Gird your waist with TRUTH, The breastplate of RIGHTEOUSNESS, have your feet shod with the preparation of the GOSPEL OF PEACE, take up the SHIELD OF FAITH, take the HELMET OF SALVATION, and we need the Word of God....THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT!

We see a lot of great things that God in doing in our lives and at First Baptist Church. Satan wants it to come crashing down, but we serve a MIGHTY GOD! He will prevail! We need to continue to trust in Him. Thank you Lord for your faithfulness....Amen!
