Reflections on my walk with God

‘The Armour of God’/ spiritual warfare… Ephesians 6

Leave a comment

When we started #Rom2Rev there quite a few of us, as time went on the study group dwindled as reflected by Christine in this post. It has been a joy and honour to share the journey with others. I plan to continue my quest to read through to the end of the NT, not just reading but also studying (I have read all the books several times, but not really taken time to understand the text and context). I pray that the Spirit will enlighten me. I will still Tweet as well on occasion ;-).
Thanks to Christine for these thoughts.

This passage is in the final chapter of St. Paul’s letter to the Ephesians but it is the first passage I think of when I think of Ephesians, and especially at this time when the deep fault-lines in relationships both at home and abroad are resulting in conflicts – with especially harrowing consequences in the Middle East.

I have written about this in detail in my prayer journal but will just comment relatively briefly on it here.

I often pray into this passage as an intercessionary prayer and I believe prayer is a very powerful ‘weapon’. The ‘weapons’ St.Paul describes here are all defensive weapons, not offensive, and they are all God-given gifts – such as salvation, righteousness, faith. The gift of intercession is also God-given.

When I read the scriptures I often find myself meditating and praying. Sometimes I read commentaries. Sometimes I ask how Christian friends have responded…

Updated April 2017! When I started this blog I was very much a "young" Christian and still very much finding my way. This year I celebrate my 10th rebirth day in June and so must think of myself as at least an adolescent Christian, but this blog is still about my meandering walk with God. I became a Mother at 41 - and that colours much of how I live my life. When asked at about 4 what Mummy's most important job was, my daughter did not hesitate to say" Looking after me". I will drop anything that I am doing if my family needs me. My family come first and I think of myself as Mother, Wife, daughter, sister, teacher - in that order. I am currently having a “Gap year” – I left my teaching job with my Husband’s blessing and very much in answer to God’s prompting in August 2016. I am now looking and waiting for God to reveal His plan for my life.
