Are You Ready for the War?

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.

***The Bible study on Psalm 91 that I will be co-leading with my friend, Glenda Mills will be moved to Thursdays. That will serve as my Thursday posts for the next 6 weeks. Please invite your family and friends to join us!***


  1. That away to go girl! Put on Ephesians 6 armor! The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through the pulling down of strongholds. Love you!

  2. I wish I could remember who said this, but one pastor shared how we as Christ followers often view life as a playground instead of a battleground. So true.

    Great truth this morning, Jamie. Thanks for the reminder!

  3. "If one piece is missing, we're not ready to fight." So very true Jamie, God bless you sister,

    Love, Hester

  4. Thanks for reminding us of this great Truth, Jamie. My husband and I put on the whole armor of God every morning. On the occasions that I forget, I usually end up battered and bruised :/
