The Fabulous Armor of God. Probably trillions of Christians put on the armor daily. But do we really know just what we’re putting on, and its true value? Speaking from personal experience my mornings would start religiously putting on the armor, because its just the right thing to do right ? WRONG !. I didn’t know how powerful this armor was for many years. My mindset was to read Ephesians 6 and pow I was protected from any and
everything of the world. I’m so thankful for God’s grace and favor. This way of thinking is completely incorrect and so many of us think the armor works just like magic. There’s no such thing as magic but there is JESUS ( Just keeping it real). Putting on the armor is not enough there are actions steps we must do to truly activate our armor. God gives us everything we need, but he needs us to do our part too.
Armor is nothing like clothes! We don’t just put it on, and go on with the day. In fact Armor is to never be taken off, because the armor keeps us protected from the enemy at all times. Have you ever seen a solider take off his armor on the battle
field because he is on a lunch break absolutely not!! and neither can we take off our armor because the war doesn’t stop ever. The devil is trying to take us down. Whether its our your emotions, imagination, relationships, education, sexuality whatever. We are in a war zone even when we are sleeping. A solider knows every piece of his armor because its his protection for his life . Just like us the armor is to protect our lives. There are six pieces of armor:
The Helmet of Salvation, The Breastplate of Righteousness, The belt of Truth, The shoes of peace, The Shield of Faith, The Sword of the Spirit.
It is our job to know two things about the armor.
- What is the purpose?
- And how do we use it?
We can’t do this in our own strength we must ask the lord for guidance . Reading your bible leads you to wanting to know more. The way I came across writing this post was from hearing a series of sermons about mind warfare. In my next post I will share with you the sermon I watched. But anyways this sermon talked about the Spirit of the Sword and how we should use it to Conqueror thoughts. When I heard the armor requires action I begin to study. There is so much more to learn about the weapons. You have to do your homework and research. Stay tune for more post of the Armor of God. I pray you received this and follow up with actions .
