Embrace the Word ~ April 2024: A Bold Defense: Equipped With The Armor of God

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | |

I hope that you have a beautiful day celebrating our Lord’s resurrection! Christ won a decisive victory on the cross, defeating the devil, hell, death, and the grave. He made a public spectacle of principalities and powers and triumphed over them!

I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death. Revelation 1:18

We, now, stand in the light of Christ’s victory! He has given us everything that pertains to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3), blessed us with every spiritual blessing (Ephesians 1:3), and given us the power to walk in His authority (Luke 10:19). 

Though these things are true and are truths we can stand on, we have an enemy whose sole purpose is to steal, kill, and destroy us. The enemy opposes God and, therefore, opposes us and desires to wreak havoc in our lives. 

Thank God we do not have to fall prey to the devil’s schemes, strategies, and deceits. We have a BOLD defense–the Armor of God! 

This month’s Embrace the Word theme is “A Bold Defense: Equipped with the Armor of God.” During this month-long journey, we will examine the significance of each piece of armor and understand its purpose and power in our spiritual battles. By embracing the Armor of God, we can fortify ourselves with truth, righteousness, peace, faith, salvation, and the Word of God while maintaining a posture of prayer and vigilance.

There are many ways you can engage with this study. You can:

  • Follow the ETW “Bold Defense” reading/writing plan. It includes 30 days of scripture related to the topic. 
  • Download the FREE Devotional Guide, which includes weekly teachings with daily Pause, Prayer, and Praise reflection prompts to guide you as you study God’s Word. Download Week One HERE
  • Like and Follow Sparrow’s Song on ​Facebook​ or ​Instagram​ for additional content. 

Either way, take time to pray for wisdom and guidance from the Holy Spirit.

We’d love for you to join us! Together, let us equip ourselves with this armor and stand boldly against the enemy’s schemes, knowing that we are empowered by God’s strength and protection.

Remember, I’m here to listen to you! Feel free to share your thoughts, stories, and personal experiences.
