Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 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. … 13 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.14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— Eph. 6:10-18
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7
My FaceBook page was hacked and I had this weird feeling. I felt somewhat violated. I have never been robbed. I can’t imagine the feeling I would have if I came home and found someone had gone through my drawers and closets and helped themselves to my belongings. It must be so much worse to be “hacked” in this way.
Every day you and I are getting hacked. The enemy is constantly hacking into our thoughts, often without us even realizing an intruder has entered in. We are being robbed and we don’t realize that things are no longer there that had been there before. All of a sudden we find peace, contentment, discipline, forgiveness and so many other valuables are gone. Someone has come in and taken those precious belongings from you.
After being hacked I was advised to report the hack to FaceBook, change my password, scan my computer, and add trusted contacts as added security. I would like to advise you, if you have been hacked, report it to the Lord, change your security settings, search for other weak areas and fortify them with the Word, and if needed, enlist some trusted friends to help you prevent further attacks.
