After more than 6 years of having the same iPhone, I decided it was time to upgrade! My husband and I pre-ordered the newest, latest and greatest iPhone and were very excited when they arrived.
Purchasing a new phone is not cheap! We also have 3 boys who are messy and accident-prone! These two factors make investing in a quality, protective phone case essential.
Did you know there are hundreds of styles of protective phone cases available? I spent a long time researching cases that are drop proof, water proof, dirt proof, etc. before deciding on the right case for me to order.
When I finally made the decision, I was relieved because I was tired of looking! I felt the Lord ask me, “Elsie, do you spend that much time putting on MY protective attire that I provide?”
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. 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.
Woah! I spent all this time looking for protection for a piece of technology and it had been a long time since I had prayed for God to help me put on the armor of God! How much more important is THAT protective gear?
How about you? Do you regularly ask the Lord to help you put on his armor? If not, would you like to start?
