ARE YOU EQUIPPED?

Twilla Paris; Warrior is a Child

Lyrics:

Lately I’ve been winning battles left and right

But even winners can get wounded in the fight

People say that I’m amazing

Strong beyond my years

But they don’t see inside of me

I’m hiding all the tears

(Chorus)

They don’t know that I go running home when I fall down

They don’t know who picks me up when no one is around

I drop my sword and cry for just a while

’Cause deep inside this armour

The warrior is a child

Unafraid because his armour is the best

But even soldiers need a quiet place to rest

People say that I’m amazing

Never face retreat

But they don’t see the enemies

That lay me at His feet

Chorus x2

I drop my sword and look up for His smile

Because deep inside this armour

Deep inside this armour

Deep inside this armour

The Warrior is a Child

The song that you just heard was a good depiction of what you may feel like when you’re faced with a constant battle. But did you catch the main theme of the song?

“Deep inside this armour, the warrior is a child.”

There are some people who do not realize that the Lord gave us some battle gear to wear when we received Him as our Savior. Some think that God just gave His kids Salvation. Don’t get me wrong salvation and His grace is something I would never down play. They are His most preciouses of all gifts to those who receive Him. Many don’t realize however that God equips His children for battle. I remember when I went to basic training for the Navy. It was about our third day, and they herded over 300 of us through a processing line. We held our arms out and the person that stood behind the counter eyed us up and down and just gave us 5 packs of blue shirts; 3 packs denim boot cut navy issue slacks; 1 mid size trench coat. They never asked you if you were a small, medium or large. Size 6-10 or12, they just piled your arms up with what they thought would fit you. I was kind of amazed that when I put the issued blues on, that they fit fairly well. Granted- I could not have entered or won some kind of beauty pageant wearing that type of outfit. But it was comfortable; orderly; and served its purpose for my 7 weeks of basic training. That’s what God did; He eyed you up and down and knew exactly what would fit a person. “The perfect battle armament “

In Ephesians 6:11-18 it is written:

Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[3] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints--

First lets looks at who are enemy is:

Some Christians don’t realize that when they asked Jesus to come into their heart, they had just enlisted into God’s army. And all the powers of darkness will try to run you down any which way it can. Back in 1988 when I first got saved and asked Jesus into my heart, I believed a lie that said; “Once you are saved your life will be honky –dory.” So you can imagine that when I started to face adversity, I thought that maybe God was not around and I wasn’t really saved. That right there is a common tactic of the enemy. He does not want you to realize that the real battle is fought in the spiritual realm. Take for instance, maybe a friend or family member had hurt you in

an unexpected way. Well the first thing satan wants you to do is get mad at the person. But look what this verse says:

“We do not wrestle with flesh or blood”

In the Old Testament there was a man by the name of Daniel. Some here might remember the Sunday School story of Daniel in the Lions Den. Well Daniel in chapter 9 was praying for his people and asking God to answer his prayers. Then over in chapter 10 an angel of the Lord appeared to Daniel and said; “from the first day you said your prayers God heard you and was sending you an answer. But on my way over here to deliver it, I got into a battle with the prince of Persia (a demon) and Michael had to come and help me in this fight.”
