Do you want to be Strong in the Lord?

Put on the whole armor of God . . . and pray at all times (from Ephesians 3:11-18).

“Prayer is not merely another godly weapon. It is the all-pervasive strategy in which warfare is fought.”*

*adapted from John MacArthur, The MacArthur New Testament Commentary EPHESIANS, p. 376-377.

Christ is Far Above All

We wrestle, “against the rulers, against the authorities . . . against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places (Ephesians 6:12).”

But Christ is seated at God’s right hand in the heavenly places, “far above all rule and authority and power and dominion (Ephesians 1:21).”

This, my friends, is why we pray!

Kezi’s Gratitude

I spent last week with two of my granddaughters. Every time Kezi* put on her coat to go outside, she said, “This is the coat you gave me, Grandma.”

I gave her that coat last year.

When you pray, remember God’s gifts. God richly provides us with everything (1 Timothy 6:17).

*Kezi is 2 years old.
