There are times when the writing of a blog for Life Words Today seems to be a struggle. I’m sure there are times when the right words just don’t come for you too. So my words of life come to you today, not from my mind, but from the mind of Christ. It is always good to get into the Word of God to be reminded that in this out of order world we live in, God has provided a guide for daily living.
Ephesians 6:10-17 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil`s schemes. 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. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be ale to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”
May our Lord give you strength today as you put on the full armor of God. He offers it to you, but you must put it on.
