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. (Ephesians 6:10, NKJV)
Are you ready for the fight of your life? I ask that question because according to this passage, we're in a war. This isn't a war of gunfire and people being killed, this is a spiritual war. The next few verses speak of putting on the full armor of God. Like soldiers have to wear protection when they fight, we're no different. Do you have the helmet of salvation? The shield of faith? The shoes of peace? The sword of the spirit-the Word of God? The breastplate of rightiousness? The belt of truth?
Ladies, if one peace of our armor is missing, we're not ready to fight. And we do have an adversary. His name is Satan, and he is real! He's out to steal, to kill and destroy you. Let's put on our full armor and get in the fight of our lives!
Dear Lord, help us wear that armor each day. Help us not take one peace off or better yet, not let us forget it. In Jesus name, Amen.
