Morning. There are times Life can take you into a slump. The last few days did just that to me. Just seemed each way I turned was a hard bump in the road. My emotions were swinging and hard as “I” tried to my attitude was not rising up to the situations. Well, not in a good way anyway. Then I got up this morning turned to Ephesians 6:5-18 and as I often say, ” God is on time all the time”! Once again The Word giving me the Words that I needed to apply to get me Up and Over it all. So today, I share these verses, cause I suspect for some of you this Word could be right on time for you too. smile
Bondservants, (workers/employees) be obedient to those who are your masters (bosses) according to the flesh, with respect, in sincerity of heart, as to Christ; 6 not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, 7 with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men, 8 knowing that whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord, whether he is a slave or free.
9And you, masters (bosses), do the same things to them (employees), giving up threatening, knowing that your own Master also is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, then stand strong!
14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—
May you all have a Blessed Day! I’m off to work to be the Best I can be with sincerity of heart and in FULL ARMOR reminding myself if I feel myself getting down, discouraged, my attitude shifting to a bad attitude… STOP! The read or listen to these verses to see what piece of my armor did I take off? Put it back on and Praying always for guidance of how to handle whatever it is like my Lord Yeshua would do. Cause letting the devil get me down sure didn’t help one darn thing, it only took me further down in the sinking quick sands of darkness, my tongue rattled off words that I wish I could take back but instead all I could do was say, ” I’m Sorry for my bad attitude” Praise God those I was complaining and babbling off to Love me and accepted my apology.
