Today Reminder - 11 September 2013 (Day 8 - Victories)



A reminder for today
These divisions of the gatekeepers were named for their family leaders, and like the other Levites, they served at the house of the LORD. (1 Chronicles 26:12)

David appointed gatekeepers for each gate of the city. I have this image today that we must be gatekeepers of our hearts and keep the enemy out. The Holy Spirit is reminding me today that as a warrior and a gatekeeper we must make sure we are ready for the battle and therefore correctly equipped. This brings me to my victory verse for today:

Put on all of God's armour so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Therefore, put on every piece of God's armour so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armour of God's righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere. (Ephesians 6:11-18)

“With the weapons that God has made available to you, he expects you to capture and hold captive every thought and idea that comes into your mind, and to examine these against the backdrop of the Word of God. Those thoughts that are in line with God’s will and purpose for your life are to be released and allowed to move freely within your mind. However, those thoughts and ideas that are contrary to the Word of God are to be held perpetually captive and cast out of your mind in the name of Jesus!” – Pedro Okoro

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
