God wants to heal your mind in 2023.
Isaiah 59:14-17 - We still live on a fallen earth. Sometimes untimely events happen, even premature death. This is not God’s will, but sometimes things like that happen and it hurts. We have the strong consolation that our departed loved ones in Christ are with Jesus. It is not a loss but a win for them either way.
“Justice is turned away backward, and righteousness stands far away; for truth has fallen in the street, and uprightness can’t enter. Yes, truth is lacking; and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. Yahweh saw it, and it displeased him that there was no justice. He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor. Therefore his own arm brought salvation to him; and his righteousness sustained him. He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on his head. He put on garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a mantle.” (Isaiah 59:14-17 WEBUS)
Ephesians 6:10-13 - When you put on the armor of God, you look like God and strike fear into the hearts of your spiritual enemies.
God wants you to wear His armor because there is spiritual warfare. Make sure you put on the whole armor and don’t miss out on any pieces.
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world’s rulers of the darkness of this age, and against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” (Ephesians 6:10-13 WEBUS)
Ephesians 6:14-20 - You put on the armor of God by believing. It is about faith.
Salvation is what Jesus did for us, to deliver us from sin’s penalty and power.
The “word of God” here is referring to “rhema” (what God is currently saying), not “logos” (the word of God that has been revealed).
When you pray in tongues (praying in the Spirit), the enemy trembles in fear because it is how you activate the sword of the Spirit.
“Stand therefore, having the utility belt of truth buckled around your waist, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having fitted your feet with the preparation of the Good News of peace, above all, taking up the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; with all prayer and requests, praying at all times in the Spirit, and being watchful to this end in all perseverance and requests for all the saints. Pray for me, that utterance may be given to me in opening my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the Good News, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.” (Ephesians 6:14-20 WEBUS)
