Learning the Lesson?
Apostle Paul’s in prison at this moment. Some believe he is chained to a Roman soldier.
The Roman solider is watching over Paul – watching every move he makes.
There is a lesson for us in this relationship between Apostle Paul and the Roman soldier. The devil sends the Roman solider into Paul’s life to intimidate him, maybe even harass him. But God allows the Roman soldier into Paul’s life to teach him a powerful lesson, to give Paul a revelation.
What do you mean teach him? Well, Paul teaches in chapter 6 the powerful revelation of the "Amor of God." Paul teaches on the belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness, shoes of the Gospel, and shield of faith. These are powerful lessons.
Where do you think Paul gets the image of the "Armor of God?" It was from the Roman Soldier! Everything he describes in Ephesians about the armor of God is taken from a Roman Soldier.
The Roman Soldier's presence near Paul taught him.
What the devil sent into Paul’s life to intimidate him, God allowed to teach him. Wow!
The devil may send things into your life to intimidate you, but God allows things to happen, in part, to teach you a lesson. If you never go through anything, you’re never learn anything. If you never have a rough time in life, you’ll never learn to trust God. ARE YOU LEARNING THE LESSON?
Wow! I am learning the lesson. Its a hard one but I am glad God lives his children do much that he corrects his Children. I know Im not letting the enemy deceive me anymore. Im not turning away from my God . Im staying connected yo my God.
