"Brothers and sisters, fill your minds with whatever is good and true, whatever is pure, whatever is noble and right, whatever is lovely, whatever is honorable and admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things. Put them into practice, and God -who gives us peace- will be with you." (Philippians 4:8)

"Thanks for the Gift: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philippians 4:13)

We must train our minds to think upon these positive and peaceful things. We must keep our minds protected, because the devil could take advantage of those vulnerable ones.

Don't let them break your spirit!! Wear the Armour of God.

"Don't let them break your spirit!! Wear the Armour of God."

Evil forces may want to break your spirit in your daily struggling for survival. Don't let that to happen!! Your spirit must be stronger than your body. Do not ever give up on our dear Lord, Jesus Christ, our Savior!! He said, it was not going to be easy, but it would be worth it...
We all encounter in our daily lives the perception of evil spirits whose desires are to bring confusion, to kill our self-esteem, break our hearts, demolish our strength, bury our hope, destroy our dreams for a better future, and so on...
Don't let that to happen!! Build up your strength in union with the Lord and by means of His mighty power. You must be stronger than them, and your strength is coming from our Mighty God. I can easily detect an evil heart, for it does not bear good fruits. It may come in different forms or sources, either by vulgar talk, bad habits, crimes or bad sins that may offend God so deeply. Don't let the devil devour your heart and spirit!!...Do not let the devil fool you with its evil tricks!!...
Remember how Jesus endured pain. Remember how badly our dear Lord, Jesus was treated, tortured and killed by evil doers. Jesus' spirit and faith were never broken, for His Heavenly Father was His only strength, fortress and rock of salvation.
The Scriptures tell us great wisdom in the following Bible verses:
"The Whole Armour of God." (Ephesians 6: 10-20)
"Finally, build up your strength in union with the Lord and by means of his mighty power. Put on all the armour that God gives you, so that you will be able to stand up against the devil's evil tricks. For we are not fighting against human beings, but against the wicked spiritual forces in the heavenly world, the rulers, authorities, and cosmic powers of this dark age. So put on God's armour now!! Then when the evil day comes, you will be able to resist the enemy's attacks; and after fighting to the end, you will still hold your ground.
So stand ready, with truth as a belt tight round your waist, with righteousness as your breastplate, and as your shoes the readiness to announce the Good News of peace. At all times carry faith as a shield; for with it you will be able to put out all the burning arrows shot by the evil one. And accept salvation as a helmet, and the word of God as the sword which the Spirit gives you. Do all this in prayer, asking for God's help. Pray on every occasion, as the Spirit leads. For this reason keep alert and never give up; pray always for all God's people. And pray also for me, that God will give me a message when I am ready to speak, so that I may speak boldly and make known the gospel's secret. For the sake of this gospel I am an ambassador, though now I am in prison. Pray that I may be bold in speaking about the gospel as I should."
These are the words of the Lord. AMEN.

Amen Starry Dawn! (Thank heavens for Edit! LOL!) I didn't realize it until I clicked post comment that I had just typed Starry instead of Starry Dawn. Sorry about that! I fixed it though. LOL! We have to keep the full armor of God on because Satan is so subtle he can sneak right in before we realize it. We must stay aware and keep our "two-edged sword ready for battle. Wonderful post and beautiful pictures! Thank you for joining my "blog family". God Bless,

Yes, in God's Word is much wisdom. I'm glad you have recognized that and have chosen to to let God work through you in your blogs, as many other Christians have. I am so encouraged by that...not only for myself but also for all the many people that are emboldened by other believers that speak boldly for Christ. I love my Christian Blogger Community and pray that each of us would let God work as He chooses!
God Bless You~
