Fighting Spiritual Battles- Pt.2 🛡☝️🙏

20180523_230847_0001

Happy Thursday! 🙌🌸 I hope your week has been blessed & productive! Today, I’m finishing up with “Fighting Spiritual Battles.” The focus will be the Armor of God, as described in Ephesians 6: 10-18! 😀 Here is the verse: 

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.

Like I mentioned in my previous post, I used to be really really scared of any kind of “Spiritual Battle” talk. Anything about demons really scared me, but that’s only because I didn’t fully comprehend the power of Jesus & what happened at the cross. As followers of Christ, we have certain responsibilities. One of them, is to actively take part in this very real spiritual battle that is happening. It may not be visible physically, but the bible clearly states that it is there.

We all know there is only going to be one outcome to this, & that is the enemy’s defeat. But, he’s not going down without a fight & without trying to ruin as many lives as he possibly can, which is why we must fight. We really have no power on our own however. It is only through Jesus that we can have any victory over the enemy. Our relationship with God, will be the determining factor between victory and defeat.

So it might seem obvious to mention (but I’ll say it anyway LOL), the first thing we need to do is cultivate our relationship with God. Ask God through prayer to help you see things in a spiritual way! I did this, and I feel like I understand a lot more than I used to. It’s not only helped me with everyday situations, but it’s taken away that fear & has allowed me to grow. Another thing that has really helped, and this also might seem way obvious lol, but it’s just remaining in obedience to the Lord and His word. This can get difficult when we don’t know what the word actually says. That’s another reason why it’s so important to study it and get to know God through His word. The consequence of sin is death, and death is a separation from God. So sin directly separates us from God and makes us fail in this battle. That is why the enemy wants us to fail so bad! He wants us separated from God’s love, & he knows our weak spots. But we just need to know how to use our armor. 🙌🛡

So the first piece of armor mentioned in these verses, is the belt of truth. The verse is pretty straightforward & doesn’t say much about it, but truth is basically one of the things God is. John 14:6 says:

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

God is the TRUTH, so we should be always confident that we ARE on the side of the unequivocal Truth. Let no one, no enemy or his minions, convince you otherwise with lies or half truths. (Satan is the father of lies Lord rebuke him!). Like my church’s Pastor was discussing, many people nowadays do not believe in one truth anymore. They believe in people having their own “truths.” This however, is a lie. Jesus is the truth & this will never change!

The second piece mentioned is the breastplate of righteousness. What is righteousness? Gotquestions.org defines it as being right with God, & since none of us are perfect, none of us will be righteous 100% of the time. But as followers of Christ, our faith will make us pursue righteousness. I believe it is this pursuit of righteousness that also guards our heart from the enemy because although we are not perfect, we at least try to maintain a humble attitude before God & remain in obedience. ❤

8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2: 8- 10 NIV

The 3rd piece is “feet fitted with READINESS that comes from the gospel of peace.” This to me was confusing because I was like, what does being ready have to do with peace?! Lol.

It says here that peace will give you this readiness, in other words. But readiness for what? The fact that its talking about shoes, it signifies to me that it’s talking about A. fighting a spiritual battle & gaining ground, and B. spreading the message of God, & that the Holy Spirit will be the one helping & leading us. ❤

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28: 18 NIV

Shield of Faith- I read this verse in a Spanish version, & the way it presented the shield, was like it was one of the most important pieces of armor. I think some things can get lost in translation, but it seems to me the shield of faith is important, & the above verse states that we will use it to “extinguish the flaming arrows of the evil one.” What are these arrows? Jealousy, feelings of anger, bitterness, rage, envy, disappointment, etc etc. Negative thoughts! About our relationships & how people treat us, anything. Yes, people WILL disappoint us & betray us. But with our shield of faith, we can guard our heart & spirit against the enemy’s arrows, which simply come to destroy our faith & corrupt our heart. We will be able to discern & understand what the enemy is trying to do, his evil schemes, because we know God’s promises & faithfully believe them. We can take actions based on God’s wisdom, not our own. This will lead us to victory. ❤

Helmet of salvation- I think this one is pretty straightforward as well. It just means that you are born again, have accepted Jesus as your personal Lord & Savior & have repented of your sins, & remain in an attitude of humility before the Lord (routinely confessing sins, etc). I think it’s the helmet because it goes above everything. ❤ 

Sword of the Spirit- Paul saved the best for last lol. This what we will use to actually strike the enemy: GOD’S WORD! So needless to say, it’s THAT important. We need to know it, & believe in the promises that are there for us. Everytime the enemy tries to attack or steal from you, this is our weapon to strike back & send him packing! Recite God’s word! Study it so you can tell him exactly why he’s wrong. The enemy is the father of lies. When we’re well versed on God’s truth, he needs to leave! He has no choice because we’ve unarmed him, uncovered his lies, & left him powerless! ❤☝️💪

Lastly, pray at all times, be alert! We cannot fall asleep on the battleground. LIFE is the battleground. I know it seems like its a lot. But let’s remember this promise:

Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.– Isaiah 40: 30-31 NIV

Don’t be afraid to ask the Lord for discernment, wisdom, & strength always but especially if you feel defeated. I hope this has been as helpful to you as it has been to me! I really learned so much by writing this & studying the passages! I will be back tomorrow with my Friday music post, God willing! Xoxo💖💖

Happy Memorial Day & Thank you!! ❤🎆

Here in the US, we celebrate this weekend Memorial Day. It’s observed tomorrow, & it’s seen as the official kickoff of summer season. 🌞 Memorial Day was established as a day to remember the loved ones we’ve lost fighting at war. 

Since Puerto Ricans became official US citizens since I don’t know when because it was wayyy before I was born lol (1917 I just googled lol), we’ve been eligible to serve & there’s a long history of Puerto Ricans in the military! My brother is active, my father once served, & my grandfather passed away in Vietnam long before I was ever born. He earned a Purple Heart which is an honor for military here in the US! 💜😀

Fighting Spiritual Battles 🛡🙏⚔

20180523_230847_0001

I used to have this recurring dream, for years, when I was younger. It was more like a nightmare.

I would see myself (like a movie), in my room sleeping, & suddenly in my room appeared demons. I never actually saw them, I just felt the presence. And it was scary & they were HORRIBLE (even though I couldn’t see them, their very presence was obvious, undeniable, & terrifying!) These were incredibly POWERFUL forces. Nothing material, no physical weapon on earth could defend me. I knew, this was obviously spiritual. And they would taunt me & when I tried to call out to Jesus, they would choke me, & I couldn’t say a word. I couldn’t physically see anything. But I felt an invisible force grab my vocal chords & couldn’t talk or breathe! 😱

I wasn’t victorious. That’s where the dream would end. Total defeat. And little did I know, it was a direct reflection of my life. I was dealing with depression, anxiety, another health issue, relationship issues… the enemy even made a few attempts on my life as I’ve been close to dying 3 times already! He’s got it out for me LOL 🤣😂🎯 The enemy (Lord rebuke him), wants to destroy us children of God!! Too bad for him though because God is greater! lol 😛😛

Anyways for years I had this recurring dream. I was so strayed from the Lord & His ways I had no idea what it meant. 😔 But let me tell you, it was so real 😱😱 I would wake up sweating, without breath, gasping for air. 😧 And SCARED. Trying to call out to Jesus but completely unable. & the feeling that I was being choked was real… 😱😱

I had always been really really afraid of any sort of “spiritual battle” talk when I was younger lol. Growing up in the church, all the talk of demons just really scared me. My parents used to listen to sermons about spiritual battles & people who do all sorts of evil things & how we must be ready. But it scared me because I did not understand the power of Jesus. In my immature mind, I would hear those words & get scared lol. I chose to ignore spiritual battle talk for many years, & it led me to putting off real victory over my life that entire time.

After I began getting closer to God & growing up “spiritually”, I had another of those dreams… But the ending was different! For the first time ever, in so many years, in this dream, I was able to say the name of Jesus! I had power! Power over the demons! They went away immediately upon me saying His name, & I was victorious, I woke up calling out the name of Jesus & simply amazed!!!! 😀🙏🙌

So what had changed? 🤔

Simply put… before, I had no power because I was not connected to God. It is through our connection, our relationship & intimacy with Jesus, that we have any hope of being able to win spiritual battles in our lives & stand up against the enemy. Without this connection, we simply don’t stand a chance. We don’t have any power on our own.

11 God did extraordinary miracles through Paul, 12 so that even handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched him were taken to the sick, and their illnesses were cured and the evil spirits left them. 13 Some Jews who went around driving out evil spirits tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were demon-possessed. They would say, “In the name of the Jesus whom Paul preaches, I command you to come out.” 14 Seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this. 15 One day the evil spirit answered them, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know about, but who are you?” 16 Then the man who had the evil spirit jumped on them and overpowered them all. He gave them such a beating that they ran out of the house naked and bleeding. Acts 19: 11-16 NIV

The truth is we are fighting against a powerful enemy. But don’t let it scare you, ever! Because God is SO MUCH more powerful! He’s the MOST powerful. He defeated death, & the devil knows his future. He knows very well, he’s going to lose. But he’s not going to go down without a fight and without doing as much damage as he possibly can.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10 NIV

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8 NIV

He wants to steal your job, your happiness, your family, your health, your relationships, your children, your marriage, basically any blessing you have, he wants to destroy it because he wants to get you to a point where at a fundamental level, you question God & you lose trust in Him. And that’s the point where he’ll move in for the kill. He knows, without God, we are nothing and completely powerless. So the enemy will do anything he can to separate us from God, so he can then destroy us. We can’t let this happen.

At the end of last year, I asked God to please help me see everything in life in a spiritual way. And I thank Him because He has granted me that. I’m not anywhere near perfect, I know I have a lot of spiritual “growing up” to do still. But I thank God for the lessons learned & the growth! 🌱

Anyways after that “victory” dream, I stopped having having those dreams for a very long time! I had basically forgotten about them lol. Until one night I had another one… It was during a time where I grew kind of distant & cold from God. That dream was NOT a victory dream & to me it served as a warning, that the enemy never ever sleeps. He’s waiting & watching my every move, putting traps & hoping I stray, he will be ready. So we must be ready too. We must be cognizant of the enemy’s tactics so we don’t fall. We may not see it, it may be invisible in the physical realm, but this battle is as REAL as the air we breathe!!

18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Matthew 28:18 NIV

Jesus is our intermediary. He conquered death on the cross for us, and there is undefeated power and significance in His blood. When we pray, we must pray in Jesus name. We are praying to God the Father, but always in Jesus name because He is the reason any of us are able to have a relationship with God and be saved.

The Armor 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. Ephesians 6: 10-18

The Bible states in these verses that: A. There is a spiritual realm, well it’s talking about a part of heaven B. There is a BATTLE against the enemy’s forces in these realms, and C. we must be ready for battle and be alert at all times. I think a lot of Christians understand and accept the first two statements, but people have problems with the third lol. There are so many reasons. Some people say, well the battle is the Lord’s… Well, yes but clearly, we have to do OUR PART as well, it says so right there on the Bible. Basically, I think it’s a topic that nowadays modern churches aren’t really discussing much, because they’re leaning more toward more “practical” positive self- help sort of sermons. And people are just barely keeping their head above water! If not totally sinking. Spiritually speaking. But in my opinion, this is the most practical advice ever lol. Straight from the Bible, it is teaching us how to solve our problems! Jesus is the answer! Because if we know how to defeat the enemy, how to outsmart him and stay one step ahead, there’s going to be a major result in our “physical” day to day lives. He will no longer have control over our lives, God will. But we have to take up our sword (the Word of God) and fight, we can’t keep living life defeated!  

I am going to split this into two parts, next week I will post the 2nd part, where I will discuss each piece of spiritual armor as described in the above verse. I don’t want to overwhelm you guys with information so I will stop here lol. I hope you are able to meditate on these verses and information, and I hope you’re not overwhelmed. Always remember that as children of God, we have the victory! So we don’t ever need to be scared of spiritual warfare. The enemy may try to scare us, but he is the father of lies. He is actually powerless. When we are connected to Jesus, the enemy has no other option but to leave. We must take that power back that we have in Christ, and take back our victory. It is our inheritance in Christ Jesus.

no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the LORD.

Isaiah 54:17 NIV

That is why the enemy wants to steal the victory from us and why we must defend it. The enemy will be satisfied if he has you in a spot where you’re too depressed, distracted, busy, anxious, or somehow unable to fulfill your God- given purpose. I was in that spot for a long time. Or he will be satisfied if you’re happy going to church Sunday after Sunday, but don’t have a real relationship with God. He may even reward you for it! But our job is NOT to make the enemy happy (like, at all lol). It’s to make him REALLY miserable because we’re making GOD #1! (YAY!) So therefore, we need to continually work on our relationship with God and follow His leading in our lives if we want to see that victory! Not only here on earth, but our eternal prize, which is our inheritance as believers in Christ 💖🙏🛡

Three Day Quote Challenge! (Day 3)

This is my last day for the quote challenge! I realize I forgot to nominate a person yesterday, so today, I will nominate 2! 😀 (I won’t forget this time lol.)

Here’s my quote! It’s from one of my ALL- TIME favorite movies, Legally Blonde lol. 💖🙌👸

This quote means a lot to me because in the movie, it’s the point where the main character Elle realizes that Warner, the guy she loved, is never going to love her back. No matter what she does, how much she changes herself into his stereotyped image of what she SHOULD be, she will never be good enough for him to love in his eyes. He never thought she was smart enough or good enough for him. However, he pretended & stayed in a ltr with her, only to dump her out of the blue right before leaving for law school. This is a situation that sadly, happens everyday. 💔

But Elle’s quote is a liberating realization to have. It breaks her free from that pattern, where she was a slave to Warner’s will. I’ve certainly had those moments in past relationships, where I came to that realization. I identify with this movie because, & I believe it’s been so successful because, many women have been Elle. Even men too!! We’ve tried to change absolutely everything about ourselves for a person we’ve given our heart to, seeing that they don’t love us back. But there comes that point when you realize, nothing I ever do will ever make this person love me. After this, Elle moved on, & we all know how awesome this movie ends. Elle becomes extremely successful, far exceeding Warner, & in the process finds true love with a guy who truly loved & accepted the real Elle. 💖😍

I certainly had a Warner in my life lol. A couple, actually lol. I think this applies well to my life as a Christian woman because I should only be changing myself this way for God. Not for people. To do this, is to idolize people. And that is a sin! 😱 Sure, we want relationships to work out. But the right person will just love you, for you. You shouldn’t have to change your core personality or characteristics. Sometimes, the best & most liberating thing you can do, is accepting when a relationship simply isn’t working out with dignity & grace. Even though it might hurt at first, choose to trust in God, that He has a plan for your life, & that He will bring that person who will truly love you because he/ she will also put God first in their life.

Another lesson, is not to let anyone put you in a box. I wish someone had told me this when I was younger lol, but don’t let people dictate what you are capable of. God gave you gifts & dreams. Don’t let people put you down for them or tell you that you’re not capable! God says you are! 🙂 Some people are experts at disencouraging others & keeping them from pursuing their dreams & reaching their full potential. It can be for many reasons, selfishness, envy, greed, etc. But don’t let the opinions of any one person have more weight than God’s opinion. 💖

I hope this quote was helpful & uplifting! I don’t watch a lot of TV or movies but this one is one of my faves!

So my 2 nominees for the challenge are:

If you’re not able to do it, it’s ok! Only if you can & want to. I skipped 2 days in my 3 day challenge lol.

The rules are as follows:
Thank the person who nominated you.

Again, this one from Twitter lol.

Here’s the quote: 20180512_010114

I love this quote so much because in the past, I really struggled with my identity. But one thing I just love is that God gives us a new identity in Him. Think about how incredibly deep that is. Everything we ARE, is in Him. We don’t have to look anywhere else! God made us, He knows each of us, & He desires a close relationship with us. ❤💯🙌

I hope you enjoyed this quote & that its helped you in some way! 😀 Have a blessed day, & I hope you had an incredible weekend! Xoxo 💖
