Are You Armed And Ready?


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. Ephesians 6:13

When soldiers go into battle they are prepared with the proper equipment to fight and to protect them. Similarly police officers have to don the proper protective gear in order to be prepared for stray bullets and other projectiles.

 As a believer each day you may or may not even pick up your Bible. Maybe you are too busy checking your Facebook status or catching up on the morning news. Do you realize spending time in the Bible is your spiritual armor for your day? If I took a poll right now and asked how many read your Bible today how would you respond? Some Christians don't even take a few minutes for what should be the most important part of their day. Shame on us.
Today is you are guilty of not making time to get armed and ready why not do something to change your schedule and really get ready for the Spiritual warfare that is out there on a daily basis. Start by reading Proverbs 21 and Psalm 21. Enjoy your day.

 PRAYER: I confess there are times Facebook has been way more compelling and interesting than the Bible which should take precedence in my life. Give me self control to re order my priorities and make time for you daily. In Jesus' name. Amen.
