"Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil." (Ephesians 6:11)

Today's Thought

The armour of God . . . protection from the enemy . . . worn in battle . . to be worn at all times! A friend made a statement which shed a little more light on what we wear! Most people get up every morning and spend several minutes deciding what to put on. But one thing that every Christian should put on is their armour. First thing, before they start into the day, their armour needs to be in place every day of their life! An interesting thought, though, is that the armour is something we will only wear here on earth. On "Graduation Day", we will have the opportunity to trade in our armour for a Robe of Righteousness as our armour will no  longer be needed! What a glorious thought! Our battles are in this lifetime, but they are not eternal unlike our Robe of Righteousness which is indeed eternal. The robe is for heaven when we don't have to fight any longer, but here, we have to have on the armour at all times. Is your armour on . . . are you ready for battle? Don't get caught without it! 

Today's Prayer

Father, just as I realize that Jesus is the fulfillment of each piece of armour, I also realize that I must "put it on" every day so that I will be equipped and ready for battle, regardless of what may come my way! Lord, thank you for going into battle with me, for providing the protection I need on a daily basis, and for winning the victory! Your provision, again, Lord, is truly awesome! Amen! 

Have a blessed day!
