October 29–Armor of God

Armor-of-God-JesusChrist-Yeshuaand you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.
Colossians 2:10 [NKJV]

JESUS IS THE ARMOR OF GOD

As believers we must realize that we will always be on satan’s “hit list”. He will always be prowling about seeking someway to devour us, or cause us to doubt, stumble, or fall.
The evil rulers and authorities in the unseen world will always be seeking ways to bring havoc into our life. The mighty powers in this dark world will always be creating chaos daily, and the evil spirits in the heavenly places will try to unseat us and influence us to follow false teachers or cause us to believe lies sent by satan, who is the father of lies, to lead us away from the truth.

But if we put on and wear God’s Armor daily which is Jesus Christ, Truth Himself, we will be protected in every way from the enemy’s onslaughts against us physically, mentally, and spiritually. It is only when we walk in this world un-protected, become complacent, let down our guard, don’t stay alert, or misjudge our enemy, that we are vulnerable to getting wounded or fall into temptation. God has provided everything we need to protect ourselves, we just must be obedient to use it.

…it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. …the day is at hand: let us put on the armour of light. …put on the Lord Jesus Christ, Romans 13:11,12,14 KJV

For in him we live, and move, and have our being; Acts 17:28 KJV

Prayer:  Dear God, thank You for providing everything I need to stand firm in faith and not be shaken by the enemies attacks.  If I will but put on Your Armor daily as a true soldier is taught to do, I will not have any problems resisting the enemies attacks.  If I “put on the Lord Jesus Christ” who is the Word of God, Truth, Righteousness, Prince of Peace, Salvation and Faith, the enemy must flee.  Help me daily God to remember to stay alert and be diligent to put on the Armor of Light that will shine brightly to drive out darkness wherever I go.
Jesus said: “Abide in Me, and I in you… John 15:4 NKJV   “I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.” John 12:46 NKJV

Today:  Be an obedient soldier.  Wear the Full Armor of God and pray in the Spirit for yourself and all believers everywhere.
