If you don’t have your armor on and know what you’re up against, the warrior within doesn’t stand a chance. That armor is our life vest. It will keep us alive even when all the fiery darts and unseen attacks are wielded against us. Its the armor that keeps us on the battlefield even when bruised in the battle. Its the armor that will lead us into the enviable victory that awaits us on the other side of life, if only we stand. Stand strong.
The unseen world governed by the enemy is the one that we need to be mindful of. We, as warriors, must be prepared for action. The question remains.
Are you prepared?
How does one prepare for the onslaught of the enemy’s daily tactics, antics and obstacles?
By dressing oneself every morning, for every occasion, in the repellent armor that only God can provide. Its cast iron exterior is impenetrable if worn properly. Let me explain.
You’ve got to know the truth, believe the truth and live in the truth. He is the Truth.
That breastplate of peace, though at times, may take a beating and wreck havoc on our hearts, will indeed bring us back to the inner peace that only He can infuse us with.
Are you feet fitted properly with the readiness of the gospel? I’d not, you’re sure to stub your toes on the ways of this world.
Who doesn’t love a bright, shiny and reflective shield? Oh, the enemy of course. As we reflect on and stand on the Word of God, the enemy can only back down and retreat.
Knowing that you can’t leave home without the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit, which again, is the word of God, you must arm yourself within,my warrior friend. You’ve got to know this though.Who you are, Whose you are and to Whom you belong. That is when you’re truly able to stand strong , unwavering, no matter what life seems to throw at you. You’re a warrior. You just have to call the warrior within to attention and she will remain standing. Thats His promise to us.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and the mighty power.
Put on the whole armor of God, so that you can stand against the devil’s schemes.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood but 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 may be able to stand your ground, and and after you have done everything, to stand.Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 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.
:Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God.
