The Whole Armour
So no, you’re not really sure what the day holds! As a matter of fact, you’re not ready at all and you’re not really sure about any of it and you’re not sure how you will make it through? There’s just a whole lot of stuff to wade through and a whole heap of unsettled issues that press in with threats and fears and worries and yeah, some unsettled issues may just press panic buttons to weaken your faith, setting you off course momentarily. Oh dear one, the enemy lurks about seeking where he might get his foot in the door, through weakness, so be alert for his undermining tactics of “take down” and defeat. Oh beautiful soul, we need the full armour of God for days like this. We need to garb up with God’s divine strength and courage, for the daily battles, so that nothing can hit us from behind or sideswipe us off our feet. Grab the Word of God! Put it on early and don’t leave home without it. Paul reminds us in Ephesians 6: 10 – 11,13, “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.… Therefore put on the full armor 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.”
Yeah, our enemies are mighty and plentiful and strong and our weaknesses many and great, but God is our strength and our victory! Praise Him for that! Put Him on today and saturate yourself in His grace and in His sovereignty and all knowing authority and power! He sees it all and understands it all. He has skills beyond our comprehension to fix and repair. If you’re on His side, He’s got you and the enemies will crumble under foot. Put on the armour of God and stand firm even when the day ahead threatens to be overwhelming.
Ephesians 4: 14
“Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.”
