Ephesians 6:10-13; To end my letter I tell you, be strong in the Lord and in his great power. Wear the full armor of God. Wear God’s armor so that you can fight against the devil’s clever tricks. Our fight is not against people on earth. We are fighting against the rulers and authorities and the powers of this world’s darkness. We are fighting against the spiritual powers of evil in the heavenly places. That is why you need to get God’s full armor. Then on the day of evil, you will be able to stand strong. And when you have finished the whole fight, you will still be standing.
The days and times we live in, we must not leave our homes unprotected. There’s a war going on, seen or unseen, we must be aware of it and know that God has given us the proper attire. Don’t wait for Sunday to pray. Pray every day, all day. It not only protects you, but your family as well as your community.
You wouldn’t leave for work naked! So don’t leave home without getting dressed in your spirit. God’s provided your attire, so after you’ve showered and physically dressed for work, put on your spiritual clothing as well. You’ll be able to face every spiritual and physical attack if you’ll simply take these simple steps each day.
Verses 14-18; So stand strong with the belt of truth tied around your waist, and on your chest wear the protection of right living. On your feet wear the Good News of peace to help you stand strong. And also use the shield of faith with which you can stop all the burning arrows that come from the Evil One. Accept God’s salvation as your helmet. And take the sword of the Spirit—that sword is the teaching of God. Pray in the Spirit at all times. Pray with all kinds of prayers, and ask for everything you need. To do this you must always be ready. Never give up. Always pray for all of God’s people.
