Spiritual warfare 101… #holyghostandfire
Praying in the spirit is part of the instruction we are given to withstand and defeat fiery darts and temptation from the devil. We seem to focus on the armor. Now let's focus on the armor plus fortification that comes from close, spiritual communication with God through his Holy Spirit. I invite you to study and meditate on the following scripture. Pray about it and listen to what our Father has to say.
The Whole Armor of God
13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.
14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the BELT OF TRUTH, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
15 and, as SHOES for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the GOSPEL OF PEACE.
16 In all circumstances take up the SHIELD OF FAITH, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one;
17 and take the HELMET OF SALVATION, and the SWORD IF THE SPIRIT, which is the word of God,
18 PRAYING AT ALL TIMES IN THE SPIRIT, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,
19 and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel,
20 for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak
