Ephesians 6:10-17 New International Version (NIV)
The Armor of God
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 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.
STAND FIRM ~
As we put on the full armor of God, we protect ourselves. Our minds can run a million miles without leaving a chair. Purpose time in the word (Bible) and know scriptures of hope, love and peace. Know that the Lord is working on your behalf and the ones you care about too. Life is short and we might forget the power of God remains the same. Stand firm in knowing God is right here and able to handle this day just fine. Turn your thoughts, prayer and praise to him daily.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
