The expression “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” is an overstatement. Grab me a cute pair of jeans, a comfortable t-shirt, a nice pair of heals and this outfit will be my friend for life! When it comes to the perfect outfit, there are some qualifications that must be met for the outfit to make it out of the store.
The armor of God is that perfect outfit that we wear daily in order to fight our spiritual battles. When putting on this armor, we must be intentional about the way we use it, or we will end up going into war unprepared and unprotected. Daily, the enemy is watching you, making sure you leave the house unequipped to handle what he has planned for you that day. When covered with the armor of God, you can walk through trouble, chaos and those little life disturbances and not be affected at all.
The enemy has already planned his mischievous tricks for you for the week. The only thing missing is your participation. When we go days and weeks without reading our word or spending time in prayer, we open ourselves to a tornado filled with chaos and confusion. Leaving the house without your armor is equivalent to a police officer not wearing his or her bullet proof vest; there is no protection!
Let’s get into the habit ladies of protecting out spirit man from the tricks of the enemy. Let’s take a moment to be strategic on how we will dress for war. The enemy has strategically designed your mayhem. The enemy is locked, loaded and prepared and ready for war, and you should be too!
Prayer: Lord, show me in your word how to dress for a spiritual battle so when the enemy comes at me like a flood, I will be able to stand against him. Teach me Lord, how to stay prepared so I won’t have to rush and get ready. Amen
Scripture: Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. Ephesians 6:11 (NIV)
