Today is Sunday, August 7, 2022, and our bible verse of the day will be taken from the book of 1 Samuel 4:10-11.
So the Philistines fought, and Israel was defeated, and every man fled to his tent. There was a very great slaughter, and there fell of Israel thirty thousand foot soldiers. Also the ark of God was captured; and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, died.
1 Samuel 4:10-11.
As was with the Jews, the Christian race is a very fierce battle where a serious war is being waged daily against your soul.
In the Jewish faith it was physical; i.e. with flesh and blood. But in our Christian faith it is against principlalities and powers operating in the havenl places (Ephesians 6:12).
The scripture shows us that unlike the Jews our weapons of warfare are not carnal but mighty through Christ to the pulling down of strongholds (2 Corinthians 10:4).
And in Ephesians 11:13-15 the weapons are listed thus:
- Salvation – as helmet on the head.
- Righteousness – as breastplate to protect the chest.
- Truth – as belt on the waist.
- Faith – as shield in the left hand for defense.
- Word of God – as sword in the right hand to fight back.
- Proclaiming the gospel of peace – as shoes on the feet.
And it calls this the whole armor of God.
So now that you know the weapons you need to fight and win the devil, it’s on for you to rise up and claim it in prayer.
