Do You Have Your Armor On?
Early this morning before school, my son went out in the rain to take the dog out.
When he came in a little while later, he held up two soaked sneakers for me to see.
“Look what happened to my shoes,” he said with a bit of surprise in his tone.
“Hmmm,” I said, thinking how I could best state the obvious without being confrontational, “you should have worn boots.”
These were his school shoes, and both he and I knew he was in for a soggy day.
Would you go out into a yard full of mud without your boots? How about a blizzard without your coat, hat and gloves?
Or, what if you were a football player – would you face those muscle-bound giants without your helmet, shoulder pads or yikes! — your athletic cup?

Yes, this is so true. We are in a battle everyday, but we "are victors through our Lord Jesus Christ!" I am thankful to be reminded today thorugh your message about where our battle lies. Thus, I will be ready today to recognize the enemy and put him under my feet in Jesus name.

Thanks for your comment, Rena! Yes, you are right, we are victors. So easy to forget this though isn't it? Or, to not really know about it at all. I hope others will come to a better knowledge of spiritual warfare through this post. So happy to have you reading!!

A great reminder that we ARE in a battle. In fact, we are SOLDIERS. How often should we suit up? At least daily. Some days, more often. Thanks for your writing, which often hits me right where I need it!

Your right Sharon we are soldiers -- and soldiers have to wear their armor to protect themselves. I like that you said we should suit up daily. We often do it in the morning over here. But I read something with one of my daughters recently that said to wear your armor even when going to bed! Sounds good to me. Anytime is a good time to refresh! I'm so glad my post touched you! Thanks for dropping a comment my way.
