Hello everyone ! 🙂
I know at one point we have all been walking around the house and then you feel this intense pain in your foot and you fall to the ground, tears may or may not have been shed all because a little Leggo, Don’t be ashamed we have all been there before! And all you think is I wish I had shoes on so that didn’t happen. In our daily battles against the enemy, God calls us to be prepared with ALL of the armor so that when the enemy comes to attack like a leggo to the foot we are prepared with the armor of God. Let me tell you, Spiritual warfare is such a real thing, the enemy prowls around like a hungry lion in the search to destroy and tear up his victim. When the enemy is seeking to kill, God calls us to put on ALL the armor of God in spiritual warfare. God doesn’t say only hold the shield, yet hold ALL the armor of God for all is important through this battle, just like every member of the church is important to the body of Christ. Spiritual warfare is not a battle of blood and flesh yet it’s against the enemy and spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Which in the moment has the ability to feel as if there is a literal war going on in your head. When evil strikes out on the battle field, dress in the armor of God and be prepared for war. For God’s word is powerful and a weapon against the enemy and his evil schemes.
The Armor of God:
•Stand firm, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist
•Have breastplate of righteousness in place
• Have your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
• Take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
•Take the helmet of salvation
•Take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
• PRAYER: in all circumstances pray, pray and pray all you can!
When you have the belt of truth fitted around your waist, the breastplate of righteousness rested in place, your feet fitted with readiness holding the word of God everywhere you go, shield of faith defending all the enemy throws, helmet that has set you free by Christ, sword of the spirit fighting its way through evil and constant prayer to God almighty it’s what will result in you standing in the end. All because you gave all to God and for God, that he won it all for you!
As I mentioned before each piece in the armor of God is important and all needed for it to function. For example:
Feet fitted with readiness that is from the gospel of peace.
The gospel of peace is the gospel of Jesus Christ, when translated in Greek meaning, “good news.” When it speaks of the readiness of the gospel of peace it’s saying to be ready to go out and top of the armor of God with the good news helping you take each step into the war zone. The feet are important because if you’re in an fierce war without shoes, it might be a couple of little rocks your stepping on, but we all know how a stepping on a Little Rock feels like…NOT GOOD! It’s so small to size but brings great pain without the shoes protecting the sole of the foot.
He speaks it out a number of times that ALL of the armor of God is needed. “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. ” (Ephesians 6:13)
OH SNAP! You all this brings straight TRUTH to my ears as I read that aloud. It says put on ALL the armor not only in the moment it happens, yet it says put it on so that when it occurs you will stand prepared against the evil works fighting. It says do it now and wear it so that you have the preparation when the enemy comes to strike. It speaks that if you give all you have in this battle and trust in God, all you need to do left is stand, therefore you have won your battle, not on our own but with the power of God and his protection. We need to realize that God is always good and already doing his job because HE himself never fails. So when he gives us the armor of God to abide to, it’s up to us to place our FULL trust and put on the FULL armor of GOD without any doubt in God’s commands.
Last of all don’t forget to PRAY!!! My friends to pray during all circumstances and all obstacles that shoot you way. Feeling God’s presence is one of the most unexplainable things, yet it’s one of the most understood when your sinking in that’s very moment.
Have a SWEET & BLISSFUL week!
God is bigger than any mountain you will ever face!
