truth of the heart

TRUTH

TRUTH

The paintings may have stopped in this series but the lessons continue as these images come to mind.
Without The Holy Spirit (T—H) we are left in a RUT.
I always have liked word puzzles – maybe why He speaks so often to me through them.

Why is TRUTH a belt that needs to be wrapped around us?

Our center needs to be on HIS truth. The belt holds the most important weapon, the sword (WORD). In researching it said this is not a long sword to kill others, but a smaller sharper one to dig out arrows that have hit.

BREASTPLATE

We have a very compassionate and loving God. Some will focus on the flood, hell, disease, and whatever they want to say God is cruel. But His love is so great he wants to lavish it on us and call us ALL sons and daughters (1 John 3)

Open your heart fully to Him – He is the shield that brings us to righteousness. It’s not our activity He wants – it’s our HEART!

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. 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. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

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. Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should. Ephesians 6:10-19
