“Put on the full armor of God [for His precepts are like the splendid armor of a heavily-armed soldier], so that you may be able to [successfully] stand up against all the schemes and the strategies and the deceits of the devil” Ephesians 6:11, Amplified.
If God tells us to put on the whole armor, we probably will need it. We are probably going to be shot at by the devil. Yet, when we get hit, we wonder what happened or where was God? He was in the armor.
Some of us can ignorantly perceive that we aren’t in a spiritual war when we are. There is an adversary that plans against you. However, it is great to know that God plans are for you. He has a plan, a way, to prosper us regardless of the situation. When you put on the full armor of God, the weapon may get formed, but it won’t succeed. No matter the circumstance, you will handle it with power, wisdom, and fortitude. If you don’t want any unseen, evil scheme and strategy to have an impact in your life, make sure you suit up.
Prayer: Father, thank You for speaking to me. Help me to be a man that gets suited up every day. I ask for the grace to pray and put on Your full armor each day. The devil’s plans won’t succeed against me. Only Your plan for my life will. I suit up now, and I receive victory, power, and wisdom for any given situation. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
