"Equipped and Ready"
Did you realize that you’re a BattleShip?
Think about it... A battleship is equipped for, well, battle. It has the artillery needed to defend itself. Those on board a battleship are educated in and trained on how to operate the ship to its FULL capacity. The ship becomes a dangerous obstacle to its enemies - something not intended to mess with unless prepared to face the consequences of losses and/or defeat. As a Christian we are a (so to speak)“battleship”! We are equipped to fight! Fight against that which desires to steal, kill, and destroy our very souls (John 10:10). Question: Do you know how to use the tools God has give you access too? Knowledge is not powerful until put to use, think about it. How are we equipped? We have the armor of God (Eph 6:11-18). If worn and used properly enables us to with stand. Secondly, The Comforter (John 14:16 & 26) also known as the Holy Spirit guides us (John16:13). Thirdly, the church is instructed not to (Hebrews 10:25) forsake the fellowship of godly believers and their counsel. In numbers there is strength to be found. A 3 fold cord is not easily broken. Lastly, the Word of God (Hebrews 4:12). It is more powerful than any two edged sword piercing to the soul. Utilize what’s been given you and become successful... Romans 8:37, “...we are more than conquers...” Deuteronomy 20:4 - “For the LORD your God [is] he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.” So next time you’re facing hardship, a trail, temptation(s) etc..remember the battleship. Remember you can win because God has enabled you to do so. (1 Corinthians 10:13). God has give you his manual (His Word) directing and instructing you, utilize it. Think about it and be encouraged.
