Hope. That’s the one thing that Satan wants to take from us. He wants to cause us to sin so that we won’t have hope of eternal life. He wants to cause us to doubt and fear. He wants to take our hope of salvation away from us. That’s why Paul said we are to put on the “helmet of SALVATION” (Ephesians 6:17a).
God has given us hope in Jesus Christ. We can confess our sins, repent of them and God promises to forgive us. He has promised us eternal life. He has assured us of that in His Word. In Jesus. And in His Spirit. We have to guard our faith and hope. We can’t let Satan take it from us. Satan is a liar. He is going to try to mess with our minds and draw us away from God. Don’t let him!
It is so important that we spend time in God’s Word and in prayer. That is how we keep our helmet of salvation on. We need to constantly remind and assure ourselves with God’s Word. Growing in faith, hope, and love. Keep your focus on God. Set your mind on things above in Heaven with God. Keep that helmet on tight and continue to fight the good fight.
