“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints” (Ephesians 6:10-18).
Today’s Morsel: During my 28 years in the Army, I saw many soldiers hurt and killed because the equipment they were given to protect them from danger and hurt was not worn correctly. How often do you prove your armor? Just because we have the armor of God, doesn’t mean we do not have to prove it daily to make sure that we are carrying and wear it correctly. If the enemy can get us to think that the armor is to heavy or we don’t need to wear it every moment of every day, he will defeat us. Let me encourage you. Know your armor and wear it as a good soldier. It can save you from unnecessary hurt or even death.
Sing: I may never march in the infantry, ride in the Calvary, shoot the artillery. I may never zoom over the enemy, but I’m in the Lord’s army. Yes, Sir!
Thought For Today: Safety is of the Lord.
