“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.” Ephesians 6:10
The complete truth is hard to come by these days. People are masters at taking just the right string of words and arranging them into what sounds true. It is a dangerous skill to hold in ones hand and should be called out for what it is -manipulation. Subjects have been studied as to how they respond to any number of stimulus and the data recorded. Knowing this information is what shapes much of our news and advertisements. It really is quite a weapon and we need to live aware.
When enough experts display graphs and charts with a calculated conclusion, you can shoot an entire world with an arrow of crippling fear if presented just the right way. We are witnessing this today in the midst of a very real pandemic. I have honestly had it with seeing victims shot clean through with fear. Today I am singling out the virus, but my hatred of the weapon of fear goes much farther back.
What are we going to do today knowing we are being targeted? We unplug. We unplug from the source of fear, which is satan himself and the sources he is using. We focus our attention on the author of truth instead. We purposely feed our mind with His promises and live according to His instruction. Plug into His word and be shielded from the arrows of fear. The choice is ours to make.
Be on guard friends.
