Are you feeling the call of God on your heart to increase your spiritual vigilance? This week the Lord reminded me that I have the armor of God to clothe me as I step into my day each morning.
Won’t you join me this week in intentionally putting on the armor of God every morning? Through the symbolic pieces of armor we can be dressed for whatever meets us throughout the day. Invite the Holy Spirit, the one the Lord said He would send to be our help and our comforter and our strength to walk with you and fight for you today.
“Put on the full armor of God
“Stand firm then with the Belt of Truth buckled around your waist, (Lord, please give me understanding today of what is true in every situation I walk in.)
“With the Breastplate of Righteousness in place, (Lord, I thank You that I am covered in Your righteousness and because of that I can come boldly before God, my own sin and doubt covered.)
“and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the Gospel of Peace. (Lord, remind me today to be open to what You want me to do for Your kingdom, may I be ready to go to anyone You ask me to with Your message of love and peace.)
“In addition to all this, take up the Shield of Faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. (Lord, I thank you that by faith in Your power I can be protected from temptation and wrong desires today. Protect me physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally today.)
“Take up the Helmet of Salvation (Lord, I celebrate the fact that I am under Your umbrella, that because of salvation I am Your child!)
“and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. (Lord, may I today make Your Word a priority and read it, meditate on it and obey it.)
“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. (Lord, thank you that I can pray at anytime, in any place. May I daily bring all my activities and requests to You)
“With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.” (Lord, keep me alert and focused on You today for You are my hope!)
Questions: Do you have battles that you are struggling with on your own? How would putting on the armor of God make a difference in your daily life? What would some of your first steps be in putting that armor on?
