This week’s “Scripture Sunday” coloring page is based on Ephesians 6:12:
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.
Our struggle, ultimately, is against a spiritual enemy — but he definitely knows how to use physical realities to distract us and to trick us into abandoning the fight. Satan wants to shift our focus from the things that really matter to trivial issues that — in the grand scheme of things — really don’t.
This passage and the verses that follow it remind us that spiritual warfare calls for a spiritual battle plan — and I’ve found a key tactic for walking in victory is setting aside time every day to spend with the LORD by reading His Word and communicating with Him through prayer.
Here again, Satan loves to use the hustle and busyness of ordinary life to convince us taking time for personal devotions will just set us that much further behind, when really the opposite is true.
If experience has taught me anything, it is that I’m usually able to accomplish far more when I begin my day with prayer and Bible reading than when I don’t.
That’s one reason I was so happy to hear that Ultimate Bundles is teaming up with Jami Balmet from Young Wife’s Guide this week to offer you a free, live webinar called Finding God in Your Busy Day (creative ways to grow your faith when you don’t have time for devotions).
During this webinar, Jami will teach you:
- Where to start finding God-time (in unexpected places)
- What your Bible study time should consist of
- How to go deeper and get to know God more when you have NO TIME
- Where to find Bible study resources for deeper study…when you are limited on time
Interested? You can register for the webinar through this link.
It’s part of a 3-part series, The Balancing Act: Making Time for What Matters. When you register for this webinar, you’ll also see the two other webinars: one about weaving healthy habits into your days and another on making time for yourself as a busy mom. All three webinars are free, so sign up for as many as interest you!Blessings,
