Today, I want to share with you another one of my Trusting God techniques! It’s very simple, but very powerful! It comes from Ephesians chapter 6.
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 able 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.
So here’s what I do: I actually practice putting on the armor … really! I stand up, I buckle the belt of truth around my waist, I put on the breastplate of righteousness, and I put on the shoes of the gospel of peace. Then I put on the helmet of salvation and take up the shield of faith and the sword of the spirit. Now I’m ready to stand firm!
Check out the rest of the chapter…
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
Personal Application: Try putting on the armor of God! Actually act it out. Then ask God to fill you with His Holy Spirit and stand firm!
Home Application: Share this simple, effective technique with your family. You will be amazed at how much it will help all of you.
So powerful and yet so simple…Put On The Armor Of GOD and PRAY! Will You?
