Friends, I truly desire my writings to be uplifting and encouraging – but in doing so I cannot ignore political issues – especially in these days and living in Upstate NY (NY-21). So kindly allow me a little leeway (decompressing from the Biden Presidential State of the Union) before we jump into scripture.
Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. ~ Ephesians 6
