You won’t achieve all that you’ve been made to achieve if your head is continually assaulted by thoughts of inadequacy.
God has great plans for everyone of his children and he desires that we know this, no matter what the physical,financial and emotional circumstances around us are.
He wants us to know how deeply loved and valued we are because that knowledge produces in us, the ability to scale obstacles to be who we are meant to be. (Ephesians 3:16-19 ERV)
Day and night, we are constantly assaulted by thoughts that lead to emotions that war against this knowledge. Voices in our head telling us God only loves us when we do what pleases him, voices in our heads reminding us of past failings and mistakes,voices in our head telling us how unqualified we are..
That’s why we are to put on the helmet of SALVATION. (Ephesians 6:17 ERV) Why is salvation the helmet?
It’s because salvation is the gift of God that came from him loving us unconditionally. We didn’t do anything to earn it. While we were undeserving in sin, he loved us and saved us.
The knowledge of this love is worn as a helmet to protect our head (thoughts)from the lies the enemy tries to sell us.
The love of God is a helmet of protection we must wear at all times. The deep knowledge of that love opens our lives to the fulfilment of all that we have been created to be. (Ephesians 3:19)
