There are many false teachings in these latter days. We must be wise in the Lord or else we could be deceived. Be one with God in prayer and ask for His wisdom and knowledge. Read and study His Words in the Holy Bible that you may be able to withstand man made lies and deceptions. Satan has a strong hold on people in these days and only by putting on the whole armor of God can we come out on top. Walk in the ways of the Lord and the Spirit will be with you. Seek Him often and your faith will be strengthened. The armor of God will defend us against the evil one. When we search for truth in God we are girded about in His righteousness. Our feet are made ready to go out and declare “the gospel of peace”. Through faith we are shielded when Satan tries to temp us. The Word of God is God’s mouthpiece. It is “the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit”. God’s words are “sharper than any two-edged sword” and can pierce the very soul. When His Words are in our hearts we will understand God’s will. When someone teaches false doctrines you will be equipped to know it is contrary to God. As we learn of Him we will be ready to withstand the dangers of this world.
Be prayerful always that God may be with You. It is my prayer that You open your mind to Him. We will not be able to withstand false teachings if our faith is not rooted in truth. The gospel of peace is in the Bible and it’s words bless my life daily. I am grateful for this boldness God has put on my heart. He has given me a heart for the lost. It pains me to think that I have family and friends that are deceived. For this I don’t stand idle and keep these things to myself. If my heart is fed by the truth of God I will declare it. If I come to know that people are being deceived by man-made beliefs than I will expose them. Just as Paul said, “stand against the wiles of the devil”, I will stand up for Christ the Lord. Don’t stand by idly with the truth of God in your heart but share it. Thank You Lord for the strength You’ve given me each day. You make things clear what is truth and what is false. The Holy Bible has opened my eyes to Your gospel of peace. I love every minute I have to learn of You. Your gospel is a delight to my soul. I want more of it daily. I want more of You in my life. You have my heart and my soul. My life is Yours. Help me to better serve You and my neighbor. I love You and hope that many souls will come to know You.
Ephesians 6:10-18 (NKJV)
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;
18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints
Hebrews 4:2 (NKJV)
2 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
