Suit up for Battle

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. (Ephesians 6:10-13)

Have you ever walked into a room and you felt an evil presence? Have you been in a place where something inside your heart was unsettled, and you sensed that Satan had entered the room? It is real! Don't try to explain this away psychologically. Don't try to diminish this and say it is just for paranormal people or reality TV. There is a present spiritual dimension where that battle is raging.

God has already prepared you in advance with the armor of God to deal with that. You are already in a conflict; the war is happening. It affects the relationships with your family members, your friends, and the culture. This dimension is occurring right now. Sometimes, God will give you a glimpse of that conflict.

I didn't grow up hearing this kind of preaching. I just heard the Gospel, which is great. There is a spiritual battle going on for the hearts and souls of men and women, including their children; it is a battle we cannot ignore.

I can’t stress enough the importance of suiting up every day in the armor of God so that you are prepared for battle. Would you tell a soldier to go into battle without his armor? Of course not! You would tell him to suit up so he could not only fight, but that he could protect himself if he was under attack. The same goes for us spiritually. We have to suit up so that we are ready to fight and can withstand the inevitable attacks from the enemy. Will you suit up today?

We serve a God that is mightier than the forces hear on earth and the entire dark world. His name is Jesus

This is the second thing I ask the LORD after I thank HIM for waking me up.

I need His armor every day. I am always calling out to Jesus for His protection and guidance. And I keep asking that He helps me be humble
