Do you ever have days where you are just in a “funk”?
Days when you question your decisions….
Days when you ponder your future choices…
Days when you are constantly battling that negative voice…
Those days are the hardest.
Those days are when I have to fight..fight..fight..the enemy. Fight myself even…
My GOD has already won. But..that doesn’t mean that the enemy won’t try to attack me..or you..
That is why putting on SPIRITUAL ARMOR is so important.
Ephesians 6:11 (NLT) ~ Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.
Truth is…those days usually occur when I haven’t BEGAN my day with my normal and regular “quiet time”.
My QUIET TIME is part of my SPIRITUAL ARMOR. If and when I neglect to “put it on”... I am less prepared to fight the negativity that may pop up during the day.
IT IS MY FAULT, if and when I neglect my Jesus. HE never neglects me.
Do you have a daily quiet time? (being still, praying, and also studying the Bible)
Do you notice a difference in your day on days that you neglect that time with God?
Do you realize the importance of a DAILY time with Jesus?
If you don’t currently have a daily quiet time with Jesus, will you commit to at the very least…10 minutes a day..to begin with?
(If you have decided to commit to a daily quiet time, I’d love to hear back from you after 3 consecutive days, of how you have noticed a difference in your day.)
