Pray with Power!

Often times, many believers consider the Sword of the Spirit, or God’s Word, as the last weapon in the Armor of God.  But it is very curious why, after mentioning all these other weapons, that God follows up with instructions to pray!  Prayer is another powerful weapon mentioned in verse 18 that we have at… Read More ›

Sword of the Spirit

Have you ever heard the cliché of “saving the best for last”?  Well, the next, but generally considered the most important of the weapons in our arsenal, is the Sword of the Spirit.  It doesn’t take any interpretation to know what this means as the Scripture clearly tells us that the Sword of the Spirit… Read More ›

Helmet of Salvation

The helmet of salvation is the next piece of armor we are equipped with.  And of course, a helmet provides protection for the head, which of course, houses our minds.  And our minds are the center for our thought-life.  The devil is a master at getting people to entertain thoughts that do not fall in… Read More ›

Over the next several Food for Thought’s we will be looking into the armor that God has provided for the believer.  Why do we need armor anyway? People only need armor when they are in a battle.  Well, we may not be in a physical battle, but we are daily in a battle.  And this… Read More ›

Arriving at Your Destination

“Oh, I’m sorry.  I got distracted.”  Distractions – they are a favorite excuse for not getting a job done.    And distractions are everywhere it would seem.  Their affect can range from just making a simple mistake to making a deadly one. Distracted driving is a leading cause of automobile accidents – people concentrating on other… Read More ›
