Choices and Spiritual Warfare


This journal page is about choices.
And when I went to church today it was about Spiritual Warfare. The quote on the page is written with a gold paint pen, so you won't be able to read it unless you click on it.
The quote says: Choice Not Chance Determines Destiny
The scripture we studied today was: Ephesians 6 : 10- 17
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our battle 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.
These scriptures really spoke to me. Especially because of all the stuff that has happened lately. I feel like my faith is getting stronger. I have to trust God to be my protector and my provider. Today I thought about alot of things in church, one was that I want to be a better Christian. I want to reach out to more people. For really there is nothing more important in this world to me than serving God. ~nita~
