Devotions 19-03-08 (Eph 6:10-11)

"Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, that you may be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil."

Today is about the full armor of God. It is something I must do. The armor of God does all the protecting but I must put it on and use it. The purpose of the armor is so I may have His strength and to be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.

Sometimes in my youth or in my pride I fail to pick it up and I get into trouble. I fail to recognize my weakness or the strength of the enemy. God has provided an amazing armor and all I must do is to pick it up and use it and God gives the victory.

I am in a spiritual battle and I must have God's armor in order to be a spiritual warrior and servant of the Living God. I am not going for a walk in the park or a beautiful garden. I am in a war zone and there are people dying and suffering and God has told me to go to them and help them and deliever them from the traps of the enemy of their souls.

Lord, help me to be serious about this armor You have provided. It is not an option but a necessity in order to survive all that satan throws at me. He can not take my life until God agrees but he can wound me and make me an ineffective servant of my Lord. Satan cannot harm me with out God's permission and God wants to use me for His Kingdom if I am a faithful and obedient servant to His plan.
