Armor Up

A day before an Encounter Weekend, Tanya messaged the Choose to Soar team and asked us to stop what we were doing and put on the Armor of God. We all read Ephesians 6:10-18 out loud. 

The Lord brought to mind the drills I used to run in the military. At any given moment, all the soldiers were called to gear up quickly in full battle rattle (combat gear worn by soldiers). The purpose of these drills was to prepare us for battle, but also for us to begin to fully trust the gear. The Lord wants the same thing for us. We must meditate on His Word daily, and trust that the armor of God will do what He says it will do: Help us stand against the schemes of the enemy. The enemy cannot and will not win here. The battle is won. Our Father God is victorious and is with us until the end of age.

Armor up ladies.

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. 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 firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,” — Ephesians 6:10-18 ESV
