Armored Up Wednesdays…

We are so excited for this new season for Sisters Helping Sisters. The Lord is taking on a thematic journey and we are allowing the Holy Spirit to have His way! Over the next few Wednesdays, we are highlighting the importance and necessity of wrapping ourselves in the armor of God.

The armor is needed because we are at war! The enemy wants us to continue to fight one another, he wants us to be at war with our neighbors or those who don’t do what we do. Sisters, we cannot afford to get caught up in the hype!

If you turn to the news or hop on social media, you will see the war raging on! For example, yesterday was a big Election Day for Virginia. The enemy is using the media to get people upset at the results. He wants to put fear in people and he wants to use politics to cause division. He’s a liar and incapable of truth!

Whether it’s politics, education, or just everyday matters, we must remember we are not fighting against flesh and blood:

And since our fight is not against flesh and blood, our weapons cannot afford to be carnal…it’s time to gear up!

Join us for Armored Up Wednesdays!

Peace and Blessings

Waging War…

As believers of God through Jesus Christ, we are consistently engaged in a tremendous battle. Thankfully, we have the victory through the finished work of Jesus Christ. However, our battle still rage on as we exist here on Earth.

We engage in warfare to destroy the works of the devil. Christ accomplished this, once and for all, with his life, death, and resurrection. We are still prevalent to sin, however, because we still exist in the world. But make no mistake, we are not OF the world. No friend, as a born again believer, you belong to God through Jesus Christ. Therefore, you were created to destroy the works of the devil.

Perhaps you are wondering how that is possible. It’s done with the fruit of your lips, with your lifestyle, with the fruit of the Spirit. Your Christian walk is actively destroying the works of the devil. Your prayers, your fasting, your studying-all work together to defeat Satan and his minions. We do not have to go to Hell and get the keys, that’s been accomplished but it is our responsibility to continue to fight the good fight of faith.

We cast down Satan’s mission to steal, kill, destroy with love, building, and giving. We give joy, we command peace, and we extend grace. We triumph over the advances of the enemy with choosing to operate in love, power, and a sound mind. When Satan comes to condemn, we comfort. We Satan comes to discourage, we encourage.

So fight on sis! Continue to wage war with your ministry, your kindness, and your dedication to Christ. Cast off that spirit of fear, you will win! And you will win because Christ already won! Know that you are equipped for the fight. In Christ, you have all you need to destroy the works of the devil.

Wage on, soldier. You got this!

Peace and Blessings
