What are You Packing?

Last week, we began our Road Trip Sermon Series! As I shared, before you go on the road you have to pack because there are some necessary things you need to take!  If you missed the message, you can watch it here:  Click Here to Watch Message

 

Below are the items that we need to take with us to enjoy the trip and get you to your final destination.  For each item, I have listed a declaration for you to speak over yourself as you prepare for the journey that God has in store for you.

 

Ephesians 6:13-17

Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

 

The Belt of Truth

Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth

and the body armor of God’s righteousness

Ephesians 6:14

Martha2

Today I choose

a lifestyle of honesty and integrity.

Show me truths

I desperately need today.

Expose the lies

I am not even aware of.

In Jesus Name, Amen

The Body Armor or Breastplate of Righteousness

Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth

and the body armor of God’s righteousness

Ephesians 6:14

Martha3

Lord

I wear your righteousness,

your moral perfection today.

When you look at me

you don’t see my sin,

you see the perfection of Jesus.

Thank you that in you

there is no shame and condemnation.

Fit me with Your holiness and purity.

In Jesus Name, Amen

The Shoes of the Gospel of Peace

For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News

so that you will be fully prepared.

Ephesians 6:15

Martha1

I choose to live in peace

so that everywhere I go,

people want to know of God’s love.

Show me where You are working

and lead me to it.

The Shield of Faith

 In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith

to stop the fiery arrows of the devil

Ephesians 6:16

Jesus,

I hold up my shield of faith

against every lie

and every assault

of the enemy.

You have good in store for me.

Nothing is coming my way

that can overcome me

because you are with me.

In Jesus Name

The Helmet of Salvation

Put on salvation as your

helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Ephesians 6:17

Martha4

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for dying on the cross

and making a way for me to come to God.

I receive this extravagant gift

and ask you to come into my heart

and be the Lord of my life.

I give you all of me

and ask you to turn my life around

for the glory of God.

Forgive me of my sin,

fill me with your Spirit

and help me to live the life

you died to give me.

In Jesus Name, Amen.

The Sword of the Spirit

Put on salvation as your helmet,

and take the sword of the Spirit,

which is the word of God.

Ephesians 6:17

God has great plans and purposes for my life,

I am the head and not the tail,

I belong to God

I am God’s child

I am forgiven

I am complete in Christ

I have the wisdom of Christ

I am not defeated but victorious

God is working all things together for my good.

God Likes me,

God is for me,

God loves me
