Helmet of Salvation

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- March 15, 2013

Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Ephesians 6:17

The helmet of salvation saves from past sin, empowers to overcome present evil and provides a future hope of Jesus coming back for His bride, the church. Salvation is much more than a moment in time conversion when a person is delivered from darkness into light. It is an ongoing experience of the Lord saving us from ourselves, saving us from sin and saving us from the enemy’s influence. The Spirit convicts us, Jesus saves us and the Father keeps us secure in Him.

Moreover, our mind is a battleground over what we believe. Unscrupulous spiritual forces seek to create confusion and vain speculation. We are wise to take every thought captive for Christ, so none of our ideas are locked up in a prison camp of lies. Like a magician presenting a false appearance of reality, so Satan seeks to play mind games that create fear or false hope. However,  we wisely renew our mind daily by His cleansing word. Jesus saves us from stinking thinking.

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5

Does God’s good plan and future hope fill your head? Indeed, these hopeful thoughts breed healthy thinking that leads to wise living. You can be hopeful, because your provision is from the One who gave you the vision. You can be hopeful, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. You can be hopeful, because there is nothing that can separate you from the love of your Heavenly Father. You can be hopeful, because in Christ you have all you need!

Therefore, put on heaven’s helmet of salvation. It may look unusual to a lost world, but your outward devotion reminds them of their inner need for a Savior. Be ever vigilant to protect your mind, since a blow to the head from trashy thoughts leads to bad behavior. Ask the Lord to deliver you from talking yourself into foolish decisions. Submit to Him and to trusted advisors who provide checks and balances in your decision-making. Fill your mind with Christ’s mind!

Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
1 Corinthians 2:16

Prayer: Heavenly Father, save my thoughts from the influence of evil and fill me with righteous thinking.

  2. I’m the business owner of JustCBD Store label (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently looking to grow my wholesale side of company. I really hope that someone at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance 🙂 I thought that the most ideal way to do this would be to connect to vape companies and cbd retailers. I was really hoping if anyone could recommend a qualified site where I can get Vape Shop B2B Data I am presently reviewing creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not sure which one would be the best choice and would appreciate any advice on this. Or would it be simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
