YOUR SPIRITUAL ARMOR 1

image


Ephesians 6:11,17-18(NET) Clothe yourselves with the full armor of God so that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil… And take the helmet of salvation and the swordi of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 With every prayer and petition, pray at all times in the Spirit…

Diana was sick and had lost all her appetite. She discovered that she started getting weaker and weaker by the hour. Diana now found it difficult to stand or even sit up straight. Her phone battery had run out two days ago and her power plan had run out too. She couldn't even get up to pick up her phone in the next room...all her strength was gone. ‘Lord, is this how I'm going to die?’ she kept thinking, as life was fast leaving her body. Because Diana never missed Bible study in the church, when she missed the last one and her phone wasn't going through, Lucy decided to check up on her. This was how the Lord used Lucy to save Diana's life.

In today’s text, It is important to note that prayer (every kind of prayer) is mentioned after the elements of ‘the whole armor’ are mentioned. Prayer is what provides the power with which you put on the whole armor. Just like physically, you need a certain amount of strength to stand up and dress up, in the spirit realm, you need the power of prayer to put on the whole armor of God and to stand.

When the devil wants to attack a Christian, he tries to distract him from the word of God and from prayer; these are his sources of spiritual nutrition, respiration, and strength.

Go into today knowing that no devil can stop you as long as you choose not to subscribe to the ignorance the devil capitalizes on. Determine to make the study of God’s word and prayer your impulsive habit.

Pray: Heavenly Father, please help me sustain a living prayer altar, in Jesus' name. Amen
