|"Be sober and vigilant, your adversary roams like a roaring lion". Ephesians 5:8|
Today, I saw a security guard for a certain company and the holy spirit spoke to me in an amazing way. He reminded me of a scripture that says we are in the world but of the world. This guard belongs to a security company and is deployed to provide security for a particular company. Probably, he works in during the day and he knows what takes place in that company that he is securing , since he has to be responsible for any attacks, robbery that are bound to happen if he’s not careful. It literally means, this guard is an employee of the security company not the company he protects. Similarly, we are in this world with an assignment to do the will of God and to worship him and yet we have to give an account of what we did in this world. Remember we are guarding ourselves from the thief who is the devil. He came to steal, kill and destroy but Jesus came that we may have life and have it more abanduntly. John 10:10. Your weapon of welfare is the word of God. Just to remind of the full armor of God in Ephesians 6:10. The belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness, readiness to preach the gospel of peace, the shield of faith, helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit which is the word of God.
