"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.

"Wear The Whole Armour of God."

The Whole Armour of God. (Ephesians 6: 10-20)
“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 Holy Spirit gives you. Do all this in prayer, asking for God’s help. Pray on every occasion, as the Holy 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.” (Ephesians 6: 10-20)
May God, the Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ, give to all Christian brothers and sisters, peace and love with faith. May God’s grace be with all those who love our Lord Jesus Christ with undying love.
