What are You Wearing Today?

We are to put on each day the armor of God (Ephes 6:10).  Physically we would never walk out of our dwelling before dressing.  The same holds true spiritually, we need to dress ourselves daily by putting on the helmet of salvation to protect our mind from the lies and accusations of the enemy; put on the breastplate of righteousness to protect our heart from hurts and offenses from others, otherwise we will get hard hearted and walk in unforgiveness; wrap the belt of truth around our middle, the core of our being, and know who we are in Christ and what He has done for us; put on shoes that will carry us with the Gospel of peace; hold tightly to the shield of faith to deflect the fiery arrows of the enemy’s lies and schemes to defeat our dreams, passions and destiny. And lastly, we need to pick up daily the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God and wield it with wisdom and grace.  The sword is our offensive weapon and how we speak the Word will be an offensive blow of life or death.  Words are powerful.  The Word of God is active and alive, sharper than a two edged sword, able to divide bone and marrow, and judges the intentions of the heart, Hebrews 4:12.  Speak God’s Word with kindness, compassion, affirmation and truth.  Dress for the day both physically and spiritually.
