You have interesting titles, what does it mean to “fix your hair?” Fix your hair is my way of saying put on the Helmet of Salvation (Eph. 6:17) that can help you regulate your mind, watch your thoughts, bring them under captivity to Christ, keep from thinking idol We must thoughts and let your mind be the mind that pleases Jesus. Tell us about “tightening your girdle.”
empty the trash of our thoughts and hearts...
Tightening your girdle is a metaphor for strengthening and supporting your body, mind and soul with the word of Truth spoken only by Jesus. It is tightened by learning the word and applying the word of God for your edification and God’s glory. The scripture says to Gird your Loins (Eph. 6:14) with truth. This is for men and women, boys and girls because we all need to know the Truth so the Truth can set us free. You encourage us to “put on your stomping shoes,” what have shoes got to do with it? In this scripture we are encouraged to STAND (be confident in what we believe and do not be swayed or be double minded). When we put on our stomping shoes we can not only stand secure and stand for right, we can march to victory by staying in shape for the battle. We stay ready to march out any time and anywhere. As we are standing on God’s promises we also hold the enemy back by the word of our testimony. We are marching and telling everyone about the goodness of the Lord and how he delivers us from the snare of the fouler and the noise some pestilence. We demonstrate to the world that we can rejoice in the Lord always and dance for joy because we know in whom we believe and we know that He is able to deliver us. Let your feet be shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace (Eph. 6:14) Throughout the book you ask “Are you ready to win?” Mamas T, in summary tell us how we can be ready. Everybody has the privilege to be Ready To Win against the wiles of the devil. We can win if we have a winning attitude and a willingness to win God’s way. We must empty the trash of our thoughts and hearts and fill our hearts with the righteousness of God. We must study the word of God so we can be braced and strengthened by it when we are in battle. Remember, God is fighting these battles for us if we would just keep our mind on Jesus and be wise in the Lord. We are not wrestling against flesh and blood (human beings or human circumstances) but against Satan himself. He has already been defeated by the seed of the woman, Christ Jesus, Himself. If you want to win every battle everyday, Ephesians 6:10-18 has the sure-fire answers. Follow the directions and you will be Ready to Win. Remember, Don’t Give In – God Wants YOU To Win! 22 / SOAR
Thelma shares in her new book “Don’t Give In…God Wants You to Win” the keys to winning your fight and getting your victory.
