The Armor of God : Book Review - Decree by Patricia King

Putting on the Armor of God

In Paul's letter to the Ephesians, he writes how our enemy is not physical, but spiritual, and thus we must be adept with the weapons of spiritual warfare and put on the Full Armor of God. This post contains my opinion of a great resource that has been helpful to me.

Wielding Your Sword

In Christ's temptation in the desert we see an excellent example of how to wield the sword of truth, citing scriptures! 
Repeatedly Christ answered his opponent:
"It is written.."
Left -Silver suit of armor Right- Ephesians 6:10-16  The belt of truth  The breastplate of righteousness The shoes of peace The shield of faith The helmet of salvation  The sword of the Spirit (which is the word of God)

We also see the importance of knowing exactly who we are in Christ in the account of the seven sons of Sceva who tried to expel a demon in the name of Christ and their disastrous results.

So how can we successfully really stand firm in who we are in Christ?

Decree a thing and it shall be established is an excellent compilation of scriptures adapted into the first person by Patricia King.  This slim volume is packed with excellent self-fulfilling prophesies to declare over our lives, families, businesses and ministries. 

For example:
"I am a child of God. God is spiritually my Father.
Romans 8:14-15; Galatians 3:26; 4:6; John 1:12"

Lightweight enough to pack into a handbag or carry-on, Decree a thing and it shall be established makes a great gift for anyone on the go. I wholeheartedly recommend this excellent resource to everyone.

Know who you are in Christ and stand on it! The battle is on!
