A Daily Reminder

"One thing I learned at the National Priest Conference" from the Autumn 2019 Vision Newsletter

An Apostle told me that one of our priests says the confirmation vow every morning.

“I renounce Satan and all his work and ways, and surrender myself to You, O triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, in belief, obedience, and the earnest resolution to remain faithful to You until my end. Amen.”

After I heard this, I also began to do this in my morning prayer. In reciting the words, I felt a strength come over me, firstly declaring war on Satan and making my resolution of faith anew. This was followed by a feeling of humbleness and warmth in the affirmation of my love and trust in the One who has always loved me.

In so doing, we gird ourselves for the day ahead, focused on the love and power of the Almighty, boldly facing whatever the evil one may put in our way. This is the advice of Apostle Paul to the Ephesians:

Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God... (Ephesians 6:11-17).
