November 3–Attitude of Gratitude–Day 3

Armor of God--Ephesians 6:13I AM GRATEFUL FOR….ARMOR OF GOD
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Ephesians 6:11  NKJV

An Attitude of Gratitude Thought & Prayer:
The definition of “wiles” is : a trick, artifice, or strategy meant to fool, trap, or entice.

Therefore, Paul is saying believers need to put on the Armor of God daily to stand against the devil’s deceitful cunning ways that could fool, trick or trap them as they walk through the world.

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Ephesians 6:12 NKJV

Dear God, I thank You for the Armor You provide to me. I am grateful for this Armor which represents Jesus Christ.
Jesus, my Savior and Lord, is my daily covering, and I can stand firm in Him.

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
