Put on Your Armor!!!


Ephesians 6:10-18

New International Version (NIV)

The Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 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. 13 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.14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

As believers, I know some days it may feel like you are being attacked on every side. The reason you feel that way is because YOU ARE!!!

But ALL PRAISES be to the God of our strength. God has given us tools to protect ourselves with, in times of battle.

What is our protection? The Armor of God. Saints of God, please don’t think that you can fight this battle alone. Prepare yourself for the battle.

Even in 2017 we still have natural wars raging. I’m sure that you know at least one person who is serving or who had served in the military. How do you think they dressed when they were heading out for battle. I’m almost sure they didn’t wear flip-flops, shorts and T-shirt.

How much more should we have on our spiritual armour, as we fight against an enemy that we can’t see. The battle is real and we have ALL been called to ACTIVE SPIRITUAL DUTY.

Enjoy today’s worship video, as you are getting your armor on this morning. The song is performed by Lyle Lovett entitled, “Im a Soldier in the Army of the Lord.”
