Hope for today: the full armor

Hope12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

  1. Of all the Bible verses that offer such guidance and instruction, I oftentimes put this one lower on my list of “priority” verses without realising it. The enemy’s way of tripping me, perhaps???

    1. So very true…We do often forget that we are in a battle and all the enemy is doing is waiting for a crack in our armor so one of his fiery days can make it through. I actually believe these verses are worthy of being prayed thru everyday before foot his floor. 🙂 Blessings today!
