Dressing the Spirit – Are You Wearing Your Armor?

God has given us every thing we need to dress ourselves spiritually on a daily basis so that we can live life victoriously. Although we live in a physical world, we encounter battles on a daily basis that appear worldly in nature, but are really driven by spiritual forces; like when the individual at the counter goes out of their way to be nasty, or when we are cut off while driving not one time, but throughout the entire drive home, or how it seems like no matter what we do, it just isn’t enough to please the powers that be at work, and sometimes we don’t need to leave home to experience a battle.

Paul exhorts us in Ephesian 6: 10-18 to “put on the full armor of God.” I believe his main intent behind this statement was to encourage believers to always have a ready defense against the blows that the enemy will send our way. They are sure to come, and so you and I must never be caught off guard. We need the breastplate of righteousness. We need our feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace, and the shield of faith so that we can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the enemy. These are our God-given defenses that are tried and true!

So, how do you get dressed spiritually? Make studying God’s Word a priority, and make prayer a necessity before you start your day. Get dressed spiritually and live life victoriously!

God Bless You!

Love
