As this year is moving to an end, the winter is slowly creaping up on us. Like a wild cat it waits on its prey. In this case the unexpected human. Unexpected you say, it happens ones a year. Yes, but even though it does, we humans try to pretend like it is a new invention every year.
But then again we humans have a history of sticking our heads in the sand, or if I close my eyes it will not see me. God has over the centuries tried to keep us from behaving like headless chickens. Some has listened.
If we do not want a complete and utter dark cold winter, we have to stop behaving like small children. With that I mean that if we do not stand up we might have a less human world to wake up to. This kind of winter coldness are harder to get passed. The natural winter will come and go like it should, but the one that is creaping up in our hearts are harder to thaw up.
I said, ‘plant the good seeds of righteousness, and you will harvest a crop of love. Plow up the hard ground of your hearts, for now is the time to seek the lord, that he may come and shower righteousness upon you.’
So even if it is hard to do, we have to start, before our hearts get frozen solid. Pray that God will keep your heart warm and soft, in that way you will be well equipped for the battle ahead of you. Only with a soft and warm heart can you put on the armour of God.
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit,which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
With this I will say God bless!
