Did You Get Dressed Properly This Morning?
"Put on the full armour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand" (Ephesians 6:11-13 NIV).
I think it is good to remind ourselves on occasion, that often the things we are battling within our lives are not of a physical nature, but of a spiritual nature.
I think it is also really important to remind ourselves that, through Jesus, we have the victory over the spiritual forces of evil!
It is a daily battle though and in order for us to stay in this place of victory, it is important for us to equip ourselves properly for this battle by dressing ourselves each day with the full armour of God!
That is (Ephesians 6:14-17):
- The belt of truth buckled around your waist;
- The breastplate of righteousness in place;
- Feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace;
- The shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one;
- The helmet of salvation;
- The sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.
Each item of the armour has a unique and important role to play, both in defence and offence, in the daily battle.
So, *|FNAME|*... did you get dressed properly this morning?
