Dressed For Work

Ephesians 6:13 (NET) For this reason, take up the full armor of God so that you may be able to stand your ground on the evil day, and having done everything to stand.

Most professions have a dress code. Doctors do, lawyers do, athletes do and as the name goes, so do men of the uniform. Every item that makes up their dress code is carefully and thoughtfully selected to aid the efficiency of the professional. Usain Bolt would never run a 100meter dash in 9.58 seconds if he was geared in the clothes of a marine. And the dress of the surgeon will do the policeman no good when he encounters miscreants on patrol.

The believer is a member of God’s workforce, God’s army, and will in the cause of his duty be contending not with flesh and blood but with principalities and powers, spiritual wickedness in high places and rulers of the darkness of this world. Therefore, to stand and to withstand every device of the enemy, the believer must be fully dressed. No half measures. The armor was designed to work best with all the components fully in place.

Each day must find us fully dressed ready to work and to war. With our armor on, we outlive the evil day. We walk in victory, when the enemy throws fiery darts at us we quench it. We stand firm even when the storm rages and the billows roar. We take our stand and stand our ground yielding no ground to the devil.

Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere. (Ephesians 6:14-18 NLT).

Go into today dressed in the whole armor of God.
Prayer: Lord, help me always put on the whole armor and stand for you.
