When the pressure is on, come out swinging. The first blow is on your knees.
“For 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. Therefore 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. And 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 Lord’s people.”Ephesians 6:12-13, 18 NIV
The second blow is in your word. The knockout punch, comes from your Father and He don’t play when it comes to His babies.
