The Flood Gates are Open

YHC was finishing SL with about 10 minutes til 5:15 and there were 3 cars in the parking lot.  In the next few minutes the flood gates opened on Surge and the pax started rolling in.  As the one minute warning and disclaimer went off pax were still coming in, some of them sideways.  One pax mentioned that it looked like a convergence.  YHC was so overwhelmed that he forgot to pray us in.  Below is what the 22 pax did this  beautiful AM.

Conditions: 65. Cool.

Ephesians 6:10-20
Christian Warfare

10 Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by His vast strength. 11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the tactics[g] of the Devil. 12 For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens. 13 This is why you must take up the full armor of God, so that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having prepared everything, to take your stand. 14 Stand, therefore,

with truth like a belt around your waist,
righteousness like armor on your chest,
15 and your feet sandaled with readiness
for the gospel of peace.[h]
16 In every situation take the shield of faith,
and with it you will be able to extinguish
all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
17 Take the helmet of salvation,
and the sword of the Spirit,
which is God’s word.

18 Pray at all times in the Spirit with every prayer and request, and stay alert in this with all perseverance and intercession for all the saints. 19 Pray also for me, that the message may be given to me when I open my mouth to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel. 20 For this I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I might be bold enough in Him to speak as I should.

The verse that stood out to me was 13 where it says “having prepare everything”.
I prepare for everything I do.  Whether its at work or leisure. I want to do the best at whatever I do.  But what about when it comes to sharing Jesus with others?  Or being prepared when sinful thoughts come into my head?  These verses are calling us to be prepared for everything the devil throws our way.  You can only prepare by being in tune with what God says is right.  And you must be in the word to know that.  I encourage you to read the verses again and ask God to show you how you can prepare yourself against the enemy today.
