Psalm 18:34-35…2 Samuel 22:35-36…
34 He trains my hands for battle; he strengthens my arm to draw a bronze bow.
35 You have given me your shield of victory. Your right hand supports me; your help has made me great.
Disciples A have to acknowledge that we are in battle every day between the forces of good and evil. Just because we have salvation through Jesus does not mean life will be easy and we will not face any troubles.
The Holy Spirit is the great drillmaster of warriors in the battle of life against the schemes of Satan, the world system and our flesh. The goal of the Holy Spirit on earth is to conform each Disciple into the image of Jesus by making progress one day at a time. Disciples will be like Him after the rapture of the saints by Jesus.
Our soul is bent with truth from the Bible B by the warrior abiding in the Word daily. I recommend at least 30 minutes of time using the HEAR and ACTS ways of study, prayer and worship or something similar. I started doing this in 1980 and my life was radically changed by God.
The shield of faith from His Word is an essential part of the daily armor of God for the victorious warrior who has chosen to believe in Jesus for salvation.
The grace of God holds His children up with His right hand when we cannot stand alone against the schemes of Satan and the world. We are like strong columns of steel and concrete that cannot be moved when we are held up by God’s grace. This is not because of any merit on our part but by God’s grace.
Are you victorious in the daily battle between good and evil?
