Faith

I am currently involved in a wonderful women’s bible study! It is so great to meet up and have that awesome bonding, sharing and God time!!! Even when we don’t get to meet because of our crazy schedules, we are still all there for each other in prayer and that is a great feeling! Women of God!! We stand together! 🙂

We are currently reading “The Armor of God” by Priscilla Shirer

It is so great! It absolutely just speaks to me, I am wowed by each chapter and depth that she goes into to convey her message. It definitely is a very hard core study, one that takes a bit of time to complete each chapter of each week. We are currently on week 6 and I am sad that it is nearly over. Her love for God and her family shows so much in each video session. She makes me strive to be closer to God, to take more time to be truly with God, each and every day. The actionable Intel at the end of each chapter is a great way to really connect with the message and to help you remember what the most important items from each section.

“Faith is acting like it is so, even when it is not so, so that it might be so, simply because God said so.” I love this quote from Priscilla’s Dad. It is exceptional and it is the true meaning of faith. Even if you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it isn’t there and not tangible. Faith is God and God is Faith.

I love the way she describes the armor of God as actual pieces of clothing that has to be put on in order to be one with God. Each piece of armor is not complete without the rest and that is seriously how your relationship with God should be.  The way she explains how the devil is constantly out to destroy you was eye opening for me. I had never stopped and really thought about how the devil was affecting my life. He was getting at me through the people that surrounded me, through fights with members of my family and friends, and through difficulties that I was going through. I either blamed them or myself, and I never once considered the devil. That chapter was so heart-wrenchingly good for me to read. I have now stepped back and reconsidered all the bad things that had happened to me, it wasn’t my fault or that of any other person, it was the devil and he was trying to take me down. So please don’t place blame on anyone for the bad things in your life, you know who it is. So gird your loins with the belt of truth and don’t go down swinging without God and that sword of the Spirit on your side. And don’t forget your helmet of salvation, breastplate of righteousness, shield of faith and shod those feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace.

So, Ladies and Gentleman, put on that armor one piece at a time and take your relationship with him to a new deeper level. God is good, so very very good and he is there for us all the time!
