In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one. Ephesians 6:16
All means all, watch out for traps of the enemy. Watch out about him using your feelings against you, avoid gossip, envy, jealousy…..and strife. They are dangerous. Feelings are deceiving. Be careful who your children associate with. Don’t leave them with people you don’t know. Listen to the Holy Spirit guiding you.
Watch out for cares of the world, lust for other things (you must say in the Word to be a strong warrior), the deceitfulness of riches, don’t seek too much money or poverty, sickness and disease and afflictions, all attacks of the enemy. The only persecution we should expect is persecution or being mocked for serving Christ. We are blessed to be living with freedom, pray for Christians living abroad.
