As it came time to get dressed this morning, I pondered what on Earth to wear which then brought to my mind the Armor of God. This armor is a wardrobe every believer is encouraged to put on each and everyday.
I also got to thinking as I was picking out my clothes how great it would be if the armor of God was something physically tangible. One could pull out each piece and be assured they had the entire suit on properly without forgetting a single piece. You would have full confidence in being properly clothed, spiritually.
As it is, in order to be sure our attire is adequately in place we turn to the Word of God and put on this armor piece by piece and in doing so you can have the full confidence you can embrace the day because you are covered in Christ and ready for whatever comes your way.
“Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.” (Ephesians 6:14-18)
