No weapon

There is a scripture something like "no weapon formed against us will prosper". Yeah it's in the bible, somewhere, someone can go find it if they want.

I never wonder where God is when I am struggling. Never. I wonder what He has up His sleeve, but I never wonder where. When I've stressed myself out to the point that I am crying and barfing, I think He's holding my hair.

I have someone in my life who again and again tries to make my life difficult, no matter what I do. I think this person has no control over anything in his life (like any of us do?!) but I think he feels like because I am nice that he can be mean to me. Well, I have one word, grace. it's ok if he's a jerk, sometimes people can't help it. So what if he's mean, I can take anything he can dish out, because I am protected by the love of God, I wear His suit of armor everyday. I know that no weapon formed against me in hate can prosper against the love of God. I think of Dean singing "If God is on Our side, who can be against us". I think back to Kaymac's post about her stupid ex-husband and how she just wants him to bask in God's great love. Her post was timely, and I figure if she can forgive than so can I. I hope that controlling God learns & feels God's great love, quick.

I am going to shine up my armor, and satan, hit the road, you're a jerk.

Eph 6:10-20 10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. 12For 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. 13Therefore 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. 14Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18And 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 saints.
19Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
