Are you armored up?

Ephesians 6: 10 – 20

A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power…

Please read the rest of this passage for yourself.

God gives us what we need to face our enemy. He doesn't want us to run; he wants us to face our foe. He gives us all the armor we need to fight evil.

I think the thing that got me when I was reading this today, was that just as God wants good things for us and has wonderful plans…the devil wants our life to be terrible and for terrible things to happen…Definitely good vs. evil!

No fears because God once again gives us the equipment that we each need to face the devil! So, instead of leaving any of the armor at home in the closet we must daily equip ourselves with every piece to fight the enemy.

Belt of Truth and Body Armor of God's righteousness

Shoes the peace that comes from the Good News

Shield of Faith

Salvation as our helmet

Sword of the Spirit which is God's word

Pray in the Spirit

Stay Alert.

Don't you love it! When we go to battle daily, God provided everything we need…once again it is our choice what we wear!

Debbie, in reading that God's Word is the weapon to be used against the enemy today I was reminded that Jesus used The Word against the enemy. If Jesus used it then surely we should.

I think you are right about us going to battle daily. Praying that I choose to strap the armor on daily.
