When Things Don't Go Your Way

Do you ever have days, that nothing seems to go your way? That everything you do turns to mush? Or how about sometimes, a week at a time, or maybe even a season? Well, don't give up, and don't fold. The word tells us that no matter what comes at us, to put on the armor of God, and STAND our ground. And when it seems like we can't go on, STAND!

You might be thinking that is not always easy to do. You may have had some serious battles to fight. Well, first of all, let JESUS take on your enemy, let Him fight your battle, turn your battles over to Him, and you will win everytime, because He has already defeated that enemy you are trying to fight.

We put the armor of God on, so that we protect ourselves from the things of the enemy, and then we STAND covered in Christ and let Him take over. AMEN!

Maybe it is not a huge battle, maybe a small one, like you asked God to show favor on something and then it didn't turn out just like you thought. You are thinking, but I have sown seed for that, and blessed others with that, why did my blessing not come through? Everything has a season. Don't give up, but STAND and know that your season will come. AMEN! God is faithful to deliver what He has promised. He will not let the devourer eat your seed you sowed. He will be faithful and your seed will come back to you. AMEN!

Ephes. 6 v 10-13....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. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 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.......

Notice this scripture tells you not once but twice, to put on the WHOLE armor of God. Not just some of it. You need the WHOLE armor to protect you so that you are covered in every area that the enemy might try to come against you. AMEN!

So remember if your day is not going well, check your armor and make sure you didn't leave off any of your protection.

Make sure your waist if girded with the truth, your breastplate of righteousness is in place, your feet are shod with the gospel of peace, you have your sheild of FAITH, your helmet of Salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the WORD OF GOD, and then STAND, praying always being watchful to the end with perseverance. In other words don't give up. STAND! AMEN!

Dress yourself appropriately today and STAND!
