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.

Ephesians 6:13

After Thought

God will empower you to stand your ground as evil increases. Stubbornness is a virtue when confronting wickedness.~ Pastor Bob Barnett

‘Listen to me,’ cried Syme with extraordinary emphasis. 'Shall I tell you the secret of the whole world? It is that we have only known the back of the world. We see everything from behind, and it looks brutal. That is not a tree, but the back if a tree. That is not a cloud, but the back of a cloud. Cannot you see that everything is stooping and hiding a face? If we could only get around in front -’
—  The Man Who Was Thursday, GK Chesterton
Trust God with it. Trust Him with your family, your friends, your job, your bills, your health, your situation. Whatever it is, trust God with it. He is a faithful and on time God. Amen.

I imagine Jesus watching us and smiling constantly. I imagine Him so filled with smiles, ones that don’t stop at the edge of his mouth but light up his eyes and never seem to end. Smiling when we open our Bibles, smiling when we talk to Him, smiling when we talk about Him, smiling when we praise Him, smiling when we loves others, smiling when we loves ourselves, smiling when we smile.

“Whom Shall I Fear” by Chris Tomlin

The LORD is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life, of whom shall I be afraid? - Psalm 27:1 

How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Psalm 119:103
While reading through Psalms, what especially struck me was how David seemed to absolutely love God’s Word.
I want to love God’s Word. I want to look forward to reading it every day. I want it to fill my heart with the same joy King David had.
Lord, thank You for the beauty of Your Word. Help me to love your word and and delight in it . In Jesus Name. Amen.
