Yesterday I opened up my One Year Bible where I did the reading for September 28th on December 20th. And there perfectly planned was Ephesians 6:10-18. Isn't He awesome?!
Today I was back in Isaiah and read 59:15-17a.
Yes, truth is gone, and anyone who tries to live a godly life is soon attacked. The LORD looked and was displeased to find that there was no justice. He was amazed to see that no one intervened to help the oppressed. So he himself stepped in to save them with mighty power and justice. He put on righteousness as his body armor and placed the helmet of salvation on his head.Seriously God?! I didn't even know references to the armor of God were in Isaiah and this scripture seems to apply to my day perfectly. I mean, if the LORD put on armor to do the will of the Father shouldn't it be good enough for us too?
Are you prepared for whatever the enemy might fling at you today? Because if you are trying to live a godly life you will be attacked. Showing up to fight the enemy with just two little fists (the equivalent of a relationship with God that you once had in the past) and whatever cute outfit you picked out to wear on December 21, 2011 you might get battered and bruised in the storm. Some days require a full suit of armor. These are the days of our lives.
