Yesterday I listened to my boyfriend speak about the battlefield of the mind and how we are to be prepared for spiritual battles daily. He said, “your full armor is needed when fighting in a physical war, and the spiritual is no different”.
Put on your full armor of God! I use to hear this all the time growing up and I don’t think that I really knew what this was but I always knew that it was important and I remembered that it was part of God’s truth. I have a pin on my sweater that I wear every day that I got from Prayer Warriors group at my church. It says, “ Armor of God” and it has a cross on it. It’s a reminder to me in the physical that I am covered in the spiritual.
I’ve already shared that in the mornings, I speak with God and I thank him for all things. I also lift up myself and loved ones in prayer 😇. I say the words of the verse below out loud in regards to putting on my full armor of God.
“A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere. And pray for me, too. Ask God to give me the right words so I can boldly explain God’s mysterious plan that the Good News is for Jews and Gentiles alike.” Ephesians 6:10-19 NLT
When reading my bible plan this morning, God reminded me to put on his full armor. To walk in truth, peace, faith and trust everything that he told me in regards to my life. I along with everyone else have to walk in faith as it’s one of our weapons. It helps us to fulfill God’s plan for us and the desires of our heart. When we have faith were able to walk with confidence and know that everything is OK and that everything that God says is true is.
The devotional said, “Faith causes fiery arrows to fizzle”.
In what ways do you prepare for your day?
I encourage you to read/recite Putting on Gods full armor daily. It is for our victory.
