Morning Musing Over Coffee - The Full Armor of God

  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.” Ephesians 6:10-11 NIV
 Satan is real. He does attack and he's good at what he does.
But the Christian is not defenseless. In fact the Christian is provided with a full armor, completely protected against any evil attacks. But this armor is useless unless it is worn. Verses 14-17 of this chapter list the various pieces of this armor - the belt of truth, the breastplace of righteousness, feet fitted with readiness, the shield of faith, the helmet of Salvation, and the sword of the Spirit.
Satan is real, but God is real too, and His power and protection is far beyond anything that Satan can throw at us. We simply need to be fitted with God's  holy armor and rely on the strength He so richly supplies. There is no need for fear because we already know Jesus won the battle.


  1. I always love the concept of the full armor of God. Thanks for the thought-provoking inspiration this morning! Deb @

  2. This is a great reminder! We often times get to feeling defeated because all that the enemy is throwing at us and we forget who has already won the battle! We should walk victoriously and know that our God is with us (in this armor) and though the battle rages, we know the out come! Thank you Rose! Blessed morning to you!

  3. One of my favorite bible passages. Thanks for the reminders of our strength in Christ.
