Equipped with Armor: Staying Grounded Through Spiritual Warfare

Good day to you all out in the cyber world. I pray that your day is blessed through and through. May the hand of the Lord rest upon you, his protection covers you and peace is in your heart no matter what is going on around you. Lifting you up in prayer for your mental, physical and most importantly your spiritual wellbeing.

During such dark times that we live in and go through we must ask ourselves if we put our Armor on daily. Lord knows there have been days that I have went out not fully equipped. A few pieces here and there, but I need it ALL! I can’t go into battle winging it. I need to be covered all the way around. So do you. So let’s make it a habit of waking up in prayer and putting our armor on as we get our day started and not taking it off even when we go to bed for the night because the enemy is always lurking around the corner plotting and trying to grab us even in our thoughts. The Bible tells us in Ephesians 6:10-18 about wearing the Armor of God and scripture says as follows:

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. (Ephesians 6:10-18 NIV)

Now you can’t get more prepared than that! God has made it plain and simple to us as to how to prepare ourselves. It’s a matter of believing Him, trusting what he says and doing it. It’s taking action. His Word ( The Holy Bible ) is our instruction manual for everyday living. He knows what this world is about and nothing surprises him or catches him off guard. So as any loving parent would do, He’s giving us instruction on how to live our lives, not just during the feel good moments, but through those dark times as well as when warfare is making itself known. Preparation is needed daily. So let’s put on our armor that The Almighty has equipped us with and go out and face the world head on with The One who has our best interest in store. With God on side we can’t lose! Victory is ours! So claim it and receive it!

Wow that just stirred an excitement within me! God is an on time God. YES HE IS!!! Dear friends, stay encouraged and don’t grow weary. Stand firm for God is with you. Stayed prayed up for yourself and for others. Bless you from the crown of your head to the soles of your feet in Jesus name. Have a great day in the Lord!
