God, he is always willing and ready to help us. Nehemiah knew very well enjoy this provision of the Lord. In this text we will learn five tips to have a life of victory.
PRAYER IS THE BIGGEST SECRET STRATEGIC, TERMS TO A LIFE OF VICTORY
When Hanani, Nehemiah's brother, came with certain men of Judah, Nehemiah wonder how they were living Jews who had escaped and were not taken into exile, and also what was the status of Jerusalem. Hanani enformou that Jews were living in great affliction and reproach and that the walls of Jerusalem were broken down and the gates were still burned. When I heard this news, Nehemiah was sad and cried a lot, spent days mourning. More Nehemiah did not just whining, he made a decision and was seeking God in the answer and solution to your problem. I do not know that news came to his knowledge, he took his peace, you do not know what it is to sleep night's sleep, the news that came to his knowledge, very messed with you and took your tranquility, one more thing I want to say, "Use the strategy of prayer, because God will reveal secrets that will make you win." Nehemiah prayed for the mercy of the Lord God, God help him before the king. (Ne.2: 4) "He told me the King: What dost thou make request? So I prayed to the God of heaven. " See Nehemiah prayed to God for the mercy of God. And what have mercy? What is the meaning of the word mercy? Mercy means: Love loyal, steadfast and faithful and emphasizes the mutual possession of two people involved in a love relationship. When Nehemiah asks for the mercy of the Lord, he is God saying to look at the cause for your problem, and the situation of the people of God, stop the Lord act with love, loyalty, steadfastness and loyalty, emphasizing the two sides, one side is God and the other side was Nehemiah and the people of God. Given the raging sea, you must claim the mercy of the Lord, as did Nehemiah, because God will act on your life, about your question about your needs with love, firmness and he will show you that He is faithful in his life. If you want to have a victorious life, go to a life of prayer, use this strategy, because the Lord will reveal secrets for your life, for you to use and practice against the enemy and you will emerge victorious from this battle, as against power of prayer, not walls or barriers and problems, struggles that can resist.
THE UNION PRODUCES UNEXPECTED RESULTS IN OUR LIFE, to achieve VICTORY
Nehemiah met several men to rebuild the walls. All kinds of people participated in the reconstruction. Priests (Ne.3: 1), Goldsmith and perfumers (Ne.3: 8), Leaders and women (Ne.3: 12), Levitas (3:17) and merchants (3:32), and had an unexpected result with only 52 working days the walls were already erected. (Ne.6: 15). Complete the construction of the walls in 52 days was a tremendous feat, something recognized as proof of God's power. It is a lesson for us all wonderful. God's people must unite, sometimes you do not want to blend in, not to get involved with the work of God, wants to do everything yourself, the more time the union is necessary because: "One swallow alone does not make a summer . " This means, if you isolate will be easy for the enemy to destroy you, but when you get together with others and together seek God in the solution, this union will produce unexpected results, because the power of God will be poured, and the supernatural anointing Lord, destroy the plans of the enemy and the Lord shall give thee the victory.
SURVEILLANCE prevent ACTION OF INVASION ENEMY, AND NEAR YOU WIN
When Sanballat heard that Nehemiah, along with the people were building the wall, he was wroth and angry, scorned and mocked the people of God. Tobias, who was along with Sanballat, said: "Although edify, if a fox down their stone wall." (Ne.4: 3) Nehemiah prayed, presented the problems and continued the work, so they built a wall to close to half. Sanballat, Tobiah, and the Arabians, and the Ammonites and Ashdod, when they heard that the repairs of the wall of Jerusalem was going forward and is already beginning to close his gaps, were exceedingly angry and gathered together to attack Jerusalem. But the people prayed to God for protection and put guards over the walls day and night. Also in the lower places and open and behind the wall were placed men with swords, spears and bows. Chargers with one hand doing the work, and with the other held a weapon. Builders, working with their swords at the waist. Nehemiah also put a man playing a trumpet, so if enemies try to invade and attack the city, was played the trumpet and all the people ran a couple local invasion to fight against the enemy. By doing so, with prudence and vigilance, Nehemiah frustou with the plans of his opponent. The enemy has made plans to end his life, to prevent the blessings of the Lord will reach, but do like Nehemiah, do not be afraid, it is a (a) servant (a) vigilant, pray to God, that the Lord will empower you and give you strategy to confront and defeat the enemy. Watch for their actions, watch your words, watch for his works, closing all loopholes, all areas and sectors that are vulnerable in their life, to prevent Satan will infiltrate. By doing so, you will be watching and keeping with the action of the enemy invasion. Taking these steps, and being cautious, you'll be closer to reaching your victory, because the Lord will be contending for you.
BOLD HEAD, FACE THE ENEMY AND NOT ACCEPT YOUR PROPOSAL and you'll reach VICTORY
When Sanballat, Tobiah, and Geshem Arabian, and the rest of the enemy of Nehemiah knew that the wall had been built and that there was no breach in the wall, Sanballat and Geshem, plotted to kill Nehemiah, and made them a proposal so that Nehemiah would find them in the plain of Ono. Nehemiah knew and learned as he sent word to Sanballat and Geshem he was doing a great work and could not stop. " (Ne.6: 3). The work that God has placed in your hands it is urgent, and you do not have time to listen to the proposals of the enemy, you have no time to listen to the grievances of the enemy, you have no time to lose, because you are doing a great work, and Satan knowing it will launch several proposals before you, and many of them are indecent and without malice no other, seemingly harmless. But we do not have time to get involved with things of this earth. Nehemiah faced his enemy and did not surrender, not prostrated, not accept the insults, the mockery, slander, with conspiracy and treason very least, most Nehemiah prayed for the Lord's protection and prepared to face the enemy. Be brave, do not listen to the grievances of the enemy, facing the problem, not worships the difficulty, the more lift the head and trust in the Lord's deliverance. By doing so, you will achieve your victory.
HAVE DEFINED PURPOSE IS FUNDAMENTAL TO ACHIEVE VICTORY
Nehemiah had a definite purpose, was returning to the city where he was the sepulcher of his fathers, or to return to Jerusalem and build it and build the city wall and put the doors in place. Another purpose was that he asked letters to the king, presented to the governors of the region of the Euphrates to allowing its entry into Judah As well cards to Asaph, keeper of the king's forest, that this timber for beams of city gate to the walls and the house in which he lived deviria. Ie, it was not enough just to have the king released back of Nehemiah. If he had not intended to ask the cards, he probably would have trouble following face. You have to have definite purposes in your life, if you want your life of victory and success. Not simply just want more you have to struggle, strive and move face. Whatever your dreams, your projects the enemy will not have the power to prevent, God will pour out the anointing of providence and you will see the glory of God and the hands of the Lord acting and performing miracles and your life. Keep purposes before God, as this will be crucial for you to achieve victory.
Nehemiah had a life of victory, because he knew seek and trust in God's providence. He left us a great example of how to overcome the obstacles and difficulties they impose on us and the enemy puts in our path. The lessons that were left in Nehemiah: Prayer is the greatest secret strategy to have a life of victory, the union produces unexpected results in our lives to achieve victory, vigilance to prevent the action of invasion of the enemy, and brings you closer victory, be courageous, facing the enemy, not accept your proposal, and you reached the victory, having defined purposes is fundamental to achieve victory.
(Pv.1: 5) "A wise man will hear and increase learning, and understanding will acquire wise counsel;"
This is not a common message, but I have had testimony that she has changed lives for many places. So now, after deliver it in some pulpits decided to put into words what the Lord gave me. There is a popular saying: "If it was good advice anyone gave; sold." But I want to go against this word, for the word of God teaches us that growth brings knowledge and advice are for those who have understanding. So I want to believe that at this point you dear reader, just to show a person that you want understanding and knowledge. We must remember that faith comes by hearing the word of God (Rm-10: 17), and if you open your heart, the Holy Spirit will speak to you through this message. So once again I want to say that this advice will change your life and for sure you will win in your life. Was searching the internet when I saw a story that caught my attention. This story spoke of a couple. And when you read it, I was touched, and then the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart: "My son! Take this message where it is, because this is my will. " But for you to receive the message, you need to read the story.
A newly married couple, was very poor and lived in a place of favors. One day her husband made a proposal to his wife: "Honey I'm leaving home and I will travel to far away, get a job and work until I'm able to come back and give you a better life and comfortable." I do not know how long I'll be away from home, I ask only one thing: you wait for me, and while I'm gone, be faithful to me, because I'll be true to you. So the young man left. Walked many days walk until he found a farmer who was in need of someone to help on his farm. He offered to work with, and was accepted. So the young man proposed a pact to the boss: Boss I ask only one thing to the Lord. Let me work for as long as I want and when I find that I must leave the Lord relieve me of my duties. Do not want to receive my salary. I want the Lord to keep as savings until the day I leave here. On the day I left the Lord gives me the money and I'll go my way. All combined, the young man worked hard, no holidays and no rest. After long twenty he came to his boss and told him Sir I want my money because I am returning to my home. The boss said to him: All right, we made a deal and I will comply. But before I want to make a proposal. Curious he asks his boss what was proposed, and your boss tells you: I give you all your money and you go away or I'll give you three boards and not give you the money and away you go. If I give you money I do not give advice, and if I give you the advice does not give you the money. Go to your room, think and then give me the answer. The boy thought for two days and then went to the boss and told him I want three advice. If I give you the advice I did not give you the money. Said the boss. I want advice. Replied the boy. The boss then told him, these are the three councils:
NEVER TAKE SHORTCUTS IN YOUR LIFE, SHORTER WAYS AND UNKNOWN MAY COST YOUR
NEVER BE CURIOUS TO WHAT Emal, AS A CURIOSITY PRO EVIL CAN BE DEADLY
NEVER TAKE DECISIONS IN MOMENTS OF HATE AND PAIN BECAUSE YOU CAN REPENT AND BE TOO LATE
After giving three advices the boss told the boy that was no longer so young: Here you have three loaves, two are for you to eat during the trip and the third is to eat with your wife when you get home. The boy went on his way back home after twenty years away from home and the wife he loved so much. Walked during the first day and found a traveler who greeted him and asked him: Where are you going? I go to a place that is far to many days of walking on this road. Boy, this is way too long, I know a shortcut that is ten times smaller and you will arrive in a few days. The boy was happy and began to follow the trail, when he remembered the first advice of his boss: "Never take shortcuts in your life, shortest paths unknown and may cost you your life." So she turned and went his way. Days later he learned that it was an ambush. Burglars expect people to steal them and kills them. After a few days of travel, found a roadside inn where he could stay. But at dawn woke with a scream and very terrifying noise. He rose to his feet and just went to the door to leave. When reminded of the second piece of advice: "Never be curious as to what is evil, since evil pro curiosity can be deadly." Then again, he lay down and slept. At dawn, after taking coffee, the owner of the host asked him if he had not heard a scream and he said yes. So why not see what it was, was not curious? He said no. Then the host told him: You are the only one here gets out alive, crazy cried at night when guests leave and he killed them. The boy went on his way and after many days and nights of walking, now at dusk, saw the smoke through the trees of his house, and then walked through the bushes saw the silhouette of his wife. The day was dark, but he could see that his wife was not alone. He walked a little more and saw that she had sat on the lap of a man who was stroking her hair. Seeing that scene his heart was filled with hatred and bitterness and he decided to kill them both mercilessly. Hurried steps, when he remembered the third piece of advice: "Never take decisions in times of hate and pain because you can repent and be too late." Then he paused, reflected and decided to sleep that night right there. At dawn, now with a cool head he said: I will not kill my wife nor his mistress. I'm going back to my boss and ask him to take me back. But before I want to tell my wife that I was faithful to her. He went to the front door and knocked. When you open the door wife recognizes her husband and throws herself on his neck and hugs him affectionately. He tries to push her away, but not her such happiness. Then with tears he says: I was faithful to you and you betrayed me. How? __ It still amazed says: 'I did not betray you, I waited during those twenty years. And that man was stroking you yesterday evening? Said the husband. That man is our son. When you left I found out I was pregnant and today he is twenty years old. Then he met and embraced his son, told them their entire history. While his wife was preparing the coffee they sat down to eat bread last. After a prayer of thanks and tears of emotion he breaks the bread, and broke it, there was all the money, the money twenty years of work ...!
The MENSGAEM OF GOD
Maybe when you read this story, my friend, brother, if you've moved, but still many are wrong because the Bible itself says that the people suffer for lack of understanding. But I want to add something more to the story, something that will show us even more than the word of God is still salvation for all mankind, and salvation for all who believe. "The LORD give thee wisdom and understanding only, and give thee charge concerning Israel, that to keep the law of the LORD thy God." (ICo22: 12). Let's all get THREE TIPS from the Lord
ATLHOS NEVER TAKE IN YOUR LIFE, SHORTER WAYS AND UNKNOWN MAY COST YOUR LIFE
Shortcuts seems to be the best solution, many times in our lives. But we forget that to get to a place of honor and highlights, we need to learn, because no one can hold a place of honor or highlight if not wisdom, knowledge, or his fall will be greater than the ascent. And we must add that human psychology teaches us that we give very little value on things we have achieved without effort, ie those that do not pay a price. I wonder at this point, people who are now suffering for choosing the shortcuts that the world offers, and so ended up losing their families, their businesses, their friends, and much more. Pastors who had a calling and prefer shortcuts, lost everything, church, ministry. Learn something, there will always be people to show you shortcuts, but they actually want to see her fall, the opposite of our great God who paid a high price for our souls. Imagine if the boy had history of taking that shortcut and despised the first board. Surely the result would be death, and he would never see his beloved family. You may still be waiting for someone.
NEVER BE CURIOUS TO WHAT IS WRONG BECAUSE THE CURIOSITY PRO EVIL CAN BE DEADLY
They say that "curiosity killed the cat", but do you know why? Look, the cat went to see what was inside the pot and ended up falling into the boiling water and dying. So is the man, always curious to evil things, never seeking the things of God, or else you think that our young people are on drugs why? Pure curiosity. We are curious to anything that does not pay, but the word curious also has as one of its definitions, "one who has the desire to know." Well then why do not we be curious to know what is above the throne of God. If God himself says: "Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his output, as the morning, is right, and he shall come unto us as the rain, like the spring rains that water the earth." (Hosea 6 : 3) Maybe you know someone (I know) that ended up giving bad for being curious to what is evil. Rise up and be curious to know God and all its magnitude, because if "In Draw near unto God, He will draw near to you." (James-4: 8). And as the board itself says, the curiosity for what is evil, can be deadly. It can kill your family, it can kill your spiritual life, his ministry, and when we kill ourselves something God did, all is lost. Now, you my brother thought the man in the story was curious to evil things, again, his life was cut short by a possessed, but prefer to follow the second advice, it turns out to save himself, because it proved thirsty for knowledge to what is good. Your life is important to someone. We arrive then at the last council, that old master, the young man's boss, gives, he will return to his beloved wife. But we know that all three councils this message are important, and can not be isolated. Or we nourish by every word that comes from the Lord, or die spiritually dry in this fleeting life.
NEVER TAKE DECISIONS IN MOMENTS OF HATE AND PAIN BECAUSE YOU CAN REPENT AND BE TOO LATE
Well! This is the advice that unlike the other two, the consequences would not be caused by third parties but for himself as to disobey or disregard this advice, he would take the lives of others, in which case it was his wife and son. Often we look for a stroller for a prostitute, or even for a young drug addict on the streets and even imagine that in a second of your life, decisions taken at the time of anger, rage and pain, and consequently are thrown in the streets or incarcerated in a prison. And what about sheep which come unto those who should embrace them, ended up being hurt and mistreated by men living ministries pain because they use the stands to hit and not to heal or to kill or not to give life . Even in moments of being in pain or will, which is not sin, because Paul tells us, "Be ye angry, and sin not" (Eph.-4: 26), we must keep our minds sober, free from sin, why God loves the sinner but hates the sin. Do not destroy what God gave you, be it your family, your company, your friends, your trade, whatever never let hate fill your heart, never forget the story of the two wolves inside us. Remember Jacob, who in one of the most difficult moments of his life, when he fled from his brother Esau, got stopped by a stone placed pillow and slept. Have you ever wondered if that boy in his moment of anger and pain, had taken the attitude that says contrary to the advice. Surely the damage would be irreparable. So I say: FOLLOW THESE THREE TIPS
To accept, obey, assimilate, live and practice the three councils, the boy ultimately receive three rewards. And we know that to obey is better than sacrifice.
You see the reward for the righteous:
1. He can enjoy the real fidelity of his wife.
2. He can see and embrace his son.
3. He may have the reward of his twenty years' salary.
Maybe this time you're whining for something lost, but know. If placed at the feet of the Lord Jesus, may still be a chance for you. The Bible says that all things are possible to them that believe. Believe these councils and live each and see that your life will change. And may God bless thee, and keep thee free.
When you work in a company, or even walking the same streets, driving a car, flying a plane, driving a train and even a ship, we have to be careful, we have to respect the areas of risk and warning signs in some segments, we make use of some safety equipment required, and all who use the safety equipment are adequately protecting their lives, may even suffer accidents, more damage will be small, why? Because they are using the safety equipment required correctly.
We will see what are the safety equipment required for our survival.
THE ARMOR OF GOD, THAT YOU WILL FIRMLY AND RESISTANCE TO YOU WIN the devil's schemes
In the book of Ephesians we find this equipment (vs.11, 13) "Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may stand against the wiles of the devil. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. " Paul guides us, that our struggle is not against flesh and blood, is more against principalities, powers, the rulers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. If you want to win, you have to make use of this equipment. Because those who use it will overcome evil, and after having overcome all, remain firm and steadfast. His victory will depend on the correct use of this equipment. The Armor of God, it is a key to our victory and our survival. The apostle Paul compared the Christian's spiritual armor, the armor for military confrontations of the Roman legions. Each piece of Roman armor has its proper symbol and application in the spiritual realm. When Paul wrote to the Christians of the city of the Ephesians about the armor of God, he probably had in mind the image of a Roman soldier armor: harness, Sandals, Shield, Belt, Sword, and Helmet.

THE BELT OF TRUTH, THAT YOU WILL FIRMLY AND AGILITY TO YOU WIN THE ENEMY
(Vs. 14a) "You are therefore firm, Gird yourselves with the truth." Girt about with truth, and gird the loins with truth means: Being using the belt of truth. And what is the truth? Jesus said to his disciples (John 14:6) "I am the way the truth and the life" In other words, be with the belt of truth is you stand for Jesus, is that you have to accept Jesus and the salvation he has you offered. To overcome this earth, to win fights, trials the enemy you have to get this machine: "The belt of truth." The belt armor of the Roman soldier was about 15-20 cm wide, was leather, and all the armor was stuck in it. It was the belt that gave strength and allow the soldier to move with agility. Jesus, he will give you strength and agility to defeat the enemy. We will see some fundamental principles not to make use of lies.
First Reason: The Bible says that the devil is the father of lies. (John 8:44 c) "When he speaketh a lie he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar and the father of lies." Here ay a very serious reason for you not to lie. Ie. If you make use of lies, you are becoming child of the devil, because if he is the father of lies.
Second Reason: He who makes use of lies, there is to be in the presence of God and in each. (Ps. 101:7) "dont stay in my house that uses fraud, which speaketh lies shall not remain before my eyes." My friend, if you make use of lies, get rid of it while the time if you do not see what is written in the book of Revelation. (Rev. 21:8). "All liars will be cast into the lake which burns with fire and sulfur, ie, spiritual death. (Rev 22:15) "were left were everyone who loves and practices falsehood. Our first barrier, our first defense against the wiles of the devil is the truth. Without it the other parts of the armor does not work. We also have to tell you the truth, whatever the cost, because the lie can not be the first resort. Over the first action is always to be the truth. The truth is the rock on which we build our lives. Who builds his life on lies, sooner or later will see it crumble and turn into rubble.

The COURAÇA JUSTICE THAT PROTECTS YOUR HEART, THE ATTACKS OF SATAN Diabolical
(Vs.14) "And you wearing the breastplate of righteousness." The breastplate of the armor of a soldier romanoera an important piece of armor warrior. It was usually made of two sheets of brass resistant flaps lined with leather. Served to protect the breasts and the backs of the soldiers. The harness serves to protect us from evil attacks that go straight to our heart, and our soul, our spirit. Only within the armor is that we are free of this type of attacks. Though you're with this protection: "The breastplate of righteousness" the enemy attacks will continue, but it will take effect. Why? Because Jesus is our breastplate of righteousness. (Jeremiah 23:6) "In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: this is his name, that will be called Lord, our righteousness." Wear the breastplate of righteousness means: Be assured, and the conviction that in Jesus we are free from all condemnation. (Rom. 8:1) "Now therefore no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus."

The sandals PEACE THAT YOU WILL FIRMLY AND SUPPORT AND BALANCE FOR YOU NOT FALL BEFORE THE ENEMY
(Vs.15) "And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace." Who has your feet shod with the Gospel of peace unshaken by not being aloof. No matter what you do or do not do. No matter what they are or cease to be. The feet have two important functions: They are the foundation of our body and makes us walk and move in safety. To fight effectively, the soldiers had to wear shoes that gave them simultaneously: strength and mobility. Who has your feet shod with the Gospel of peace unshaken by not being aloof. No matter what you do or do not do. No matter what they are or cease to be. The sandalha peace will be protecting your feet and giving you strength and balance for you to ride safely. With your feet protected you walk in minefields, full of explosives that the devil placed or put in your way and nothing will happen, because the Lord will deliver you.
Fifth Equipment Armor
THE SHIELD OF FAITH, NOT ALLOW YOU TO BE ACHIEVED, AND TE Protera FLAMEJENTES OF BLOWS THE ENEMY
(Vs.16) "Embraçando always the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one." The shield of a Roman soldier was about two feet wide percent and eight inches long. He used to ward off the blows of the enemy and also to take shelter when the enemy archers desferiam a hail of arrows. The Romans could kneel on the ground and erect a wall of shields around them to block the flaming missiles. Inflamed darts of the wicked. Satan, he tries in every way to hit us. It can not always approach us because the angel of the Lord encamps around us and delivers us. (Psalm 34:7) "The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them." So what the heck does: "He seeks to achieve by far, launching their" fiery darts ". What to javelin throw enemy on our lives?
First dart: Unbelief. (Ionic 4:4) "In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God." When we allow unbelief allows contaminate our thinking, the enemy can eliminate all the possibilities of God working in our favor. (HB11: 6) "Indeed. Without faith it is impossible to please God, because it is necessary that he who comes to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. "
Second dart: Fear. (Mt 14:30) "Peter, noting the strength of the wind, he was afraid and began to sink, and cried: Save me, Lord." Sometimes we are afraid, when we can not control a situation. When the enemy is stronger and more powerful than we are, we are afraid. The fear is harmful and leads to Have a Life Lost. To win we have to make use of this equipment: "The shield of faith."
Third dart: Doubt. Satan, he will do anything for you to doubt, doubt what more? God's word, God's love. Doubt hinders the work of God in our lives. Does not and did not let the devil put the doubt in your heart. Because if he do so he will surely destroy you. Jesus said to have faith, and if we have faith without doubt, achieve anything we want, at your leisure. Never forget this: All things are possible to him that believeth.
Room Dart: Guilt. Satan tries to immobilize us using the strategy of the prosecution. Your goal is to always keep our consciences burdened with the weight of guilt. He is always looking to bring our memory the recollection of our past sins and mistakes. With that its purpose is to steal our peace and trust in the Lord, and make us feel rejected by God. Most remember that the blood of Jesus has cleansed us from all sin, and now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. If you have accepted Jesus and obeys the word of God, do not let the enemy come te

THE HELMET OF SALVATION, Protera YOUR MIND OF oppressions malignant
(Vs.17a) "And take the helmet of salvation." The armor of the Roman soldier was placed on the floor, piece by piece, and the soldier was wearing the various parts of your equipment. After his squire handed him his helmet, shield and sword. We will see the importance of the Helmet of Salvation and what is its purpose. The helmet has the specific task of protecting the head, is the mandatory safety equipment for those who practice extreme sports, the helmet protects the skull trauma. In spiritual warfare, we must keep our mind because the mind is the greatest spiritual battlefield. Satan, knowing this, he will invest all of its strategy to achieve your mind. The helmet of salvation was given to us by God to save our mind of any teaching contrary to the Word of God, and cover our mind. The head is the most exposed area of the human body and vital. It is the head that is the seat of the intellect of our mind where flowing thoughts, imaginations and memory. These colleges are terribly concerned by the enemy.

(Vs.17b) "And the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God." The Word of God is a very powerful weapon, we need to know it. A soldier, before learning how to shoot, you must first know the weapon you will use. You need to know very well the word of God, to be able to use it effectively. There are many people who are using the bible as a lucky charm, thinking that just leaving it open to Psalm 91 will free it from harm. You should know very well this equipment armor, and you know, you need to read, meditate, and study the word of God. Satan, he knows that when the sword of the Spirit is released through his mouth, he has no chance, and no power to beat you. So use the sword of the spirit with wisdom, boldness, believing she has the power to destroy with the diabolical plans of Satan, because not a weapon forged against you will prevail, because the Lord thy God with the sword of the spirit will make a winner. Among this battle believing that you've won. We are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus.
God is calling all soldiers to wear the armor, take this time God's armor, the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shoes of peace, shield of faith, the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit, wrestle against principalities, powers, the rulers, against the spiritual forces of evil in this dark world. And having done, stand firm and steadfast.

What Are These Truths?
When we sin and disobey GOD AND DO THINGS WRONG, suffer from AS A RESULT OF OUR ACTS.
(Vc.1) "Then the sons of Israel did evil before the Lord: wherefore the LORD delivered them into the hand of Midian seven years." Israel was suffering, because they had forsaken the Lord, they had sinned, disobeyed God's orders, which sought to worship, they podeiam not worship other gods, and Israel did not follow this order of the Lord skittish. Something that caught my attention this biblical weighing vessel, was the fact that God himself was the one who gave them into the hand of Midian. When someone sins and desobece the word of the Lord, who repent, even the LORD will perduando you will suffer the consequences of their actions. Israel was sosfrendo because of the consequences of their actions.
WHEN THE ENEMY COMES TO MEET YOU, HE WANTS TO SEE YOUR TOTAL DESTRUCTION
(Vcs. 3,4,5) "Because every time Israel had sown," the Midianites and amalaquitas, as well as the peoples of the East and go against them. And they encamped against it, destroying the products of earth as far as Gaza, and left no sustenance in Israel whatsoever. neither sheep, nor ox, nor ass. For they came up with their livestock and their tents, and they came as grasshoppers for multitude so that does not count podeiam, neither they nor their camels, and came into the land to destroy it. "Satan him see your evil, he wants destroy it, the enemy wants to end his life, see that Israel's enemies ravaged with everything they encountered ahead and climbed a large number and entered into the land to destroy it. Satan furious he will come against you, it can meet the amount of demons that he wants, he can come with legions of demon, but I want to tell you that the Lord He shall deliver thee from the hands of the enemy, because He is God.
DEPENDING ON THE INTENSITY OF FIGHTS, AND PURSUITS OF EVIDENCE THAT YOU GO, YOU MAY BE WEAK, weak: "But no losers"
(Vc. 6a) "So Israel was brought very low with the Midianites. When we go through struggles, tribulations, when it seems that the evidence is not going to end, at which time many end up getting weak, his life starts to get weak, the penssa enemy that is managing to destroy you, but this is senary of fragility that the Lord of hosts extend their hand on your life and puts you up the face of adversity. He tells you: "Son of man will put up that I talk with thee. "Can you stand up weak, but not defeated. The Lord will help you believe Him, seek resources Him, God will help you and you will see the great deliverance that the Lord will do in your life.
BEFORE THE FIGHT WE RECOGNIZE THAT NEED THE HELP OF THE LORD
(Vc. 7) "And the children of Israel shall cry unto the Lord" - When all is well and accommodates the believer does not seek the Lord - Lord let pass through the valley so we can search it with more intensity.
Cry out to God, He will hear and answer YOU TO YOUR CLAIM
(Sa 8-11) "The Lord euviou a prophet who said to them: Thus saith the LORD God of Israel: It is I who brought you up from Egypt and brought you out of the house of bondage, and I delivered you from the hand of the Egyptians, and the hand of all that oppressed you, and drave them out from before you, and gave you their land, and said: I am the Lord your God, fear not the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but ye have not obeyed my voice. then came the Angel of the Lord, and sat under an oak which was in Ophrah that belonged to Joash Abiezrite: and his son Gideon was threshing wheat in a winepress to put safe from Midianites. " When Israel cried unto the Lord, God heard their cry. So it will be with you in times of difficulty cry, seeking the Lord, call upon His name and you will come to your rescue. No matter the situation you are living cry and God will hear and respoderá to their cry.
THE LORD IS WITH YOU, IT'S NOT YOU ABANDONED
(VC.12a) "Then the angel of the Lord appeared to him, and said: The Lord is with you" Gideon, and all the people of Israel thought they were abandoned by the Lord, they were without hope and a hopeless attitude, Gideon tried to protect their property. Look, you're trying to protect themselves and even protect their property, but as much as the man tries to protect himself if he does not seek protection in the Lord, will not help their protection features, somento the Lord may give you the real protection. - Gideon was desperately trying to save what little they had left. - It was before this senary of despair that the Lord told him: (The Lord is with you)
YOU HAVE VALUE BEFORE GOD
(Vc. 12b) "The Lord is with you mighty man Sometimes you may think that God has forgotten you, because things do not acontese, anything you try to do the right, who knows you're scared, thought it was over that your boat is going to found, or maybe you're feeling rejected and abandoned, or even someone told you is not nobody. Jeseus tells you: You have Falor to me, you are my tesousro that was hidden and I thought, you have value I love you.
The Lord enables you to WIN
Look what Gideon said: "I am the smallest of my father's house" People always try to arrange some excuses to dodge before the call of the Lord. But the Lord told him: "I capacito winning" Do not worry about the enemy has power, to ourselves, to destrir his life, but the Lord will enable you, and He will strengthen you to overcome the adversities of life, so Fear not! the Lord is with thee. (VC. 14b) "Go in this thy might, and save Israel from the hand of the Midianites: have not I commanded you" Who knows, you're thinking that before this problem you will perish, who knows, you're saying no more way, or that their strength are limiadas. God had showed you a lot of power, He will enable you and you will win this battle. The enemy will not beat you, because the Lord of hosts is with you. - The Lord will enable you and give you strength in the face of the enemy - If you are weak the Holy Spirit will strengthen
IF GOD IS WITH YOU, NO MATTER THE SIZE OF THE FIGHT, OR ENEMY, GOD WILL USE YOU AND THROUGH YOU WIN COME
(VC. 16) "Since I am with thee, thou shalt smite the Midianites as one man" God use Gideon to deliver his people, so the Lord will use you with power and authority and through you will abenção, ie. The moment that the Lord put us battle, the moments that He simply tells us: I'm empowering you to win.
No matter what you've done, God exists, He is in control of his life and the Lord has chosen you, because you are brave and you have value Stop It, therefore, trust in the Lord that He will use you and through you to victory come upon you.
