We know it is always there for us but we forget that scripture directs us to, “Put on the whole armor of God”, which is readily available to any Believer.
In the past few days I have been compelled to consciously think about putting on this armour, led to share this compulsion with you, and to ask you who are Believers to join with me in consciously putting on this armour.
God wants a personal relationship with each of us, but we have to take action to receive that relationship thru prayer; ask, seek, receive. He has provided direction for every area of our life thru His Word, but we have to take action to receive that direction by opening and reading the Bible. He has provided full protection for us against all things but we have to take action to receive that protection by putting on the whole armour of God.
Each morning I will be consciously reading and thinking about Ephesians 6:10-19 KJV and then praying for my son, my family, and each of you.
If possible open your Bible and read the verses. They are listed here for your convenience but nothing can replace your taking action, opening your own Bible, and reading God’s Word. If you do not have a Bible, message me your address and I will mail you one.
Ephesians 6:10-19 KJV
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
