Ephesians 6:13 – Be prepared. You’re up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it’s all over but the shouting you’ll still be on your feet. Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. You’ll need them throughout your life. God’s Word is an indispensable weapon. In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long.
I feel like this is a great word to apply in your heart for the next year ahead. To be prepared for whatever may come, but also be at rest in your soul knowing that you’ll never be alone.
Root yourself in God’s Word – an indispensable weapon that He has so graciously given you access to. Learn to walk His ways – applying truth, right-living, peace and faith to your every day. When life throws you darkness and trouble, allow Him to pour out His everlasting light and joy. There’s no mountain too big, no valley too low for Jesus Christ to help you through. His hand is firmly holding yours, patiently and faithfully guiding you along. He won’t let you fall.
May 2017 be the year for you to pray hard and long – in constant communication with your Lord and Saviour. His gentle whisper will speak truth into any lie, healing into any hurt and life into any death. He is an ever present friend, the most faithful companion.
Believe and be prepared for your year to be a big one. One that draws you closer to Him.
