God’s Armor (8)

The past few days we have talked about God’s armor — the belt of truth, the chest protection of right living, the Good News of peace for our feet, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit.
If we have all the pieces of God’s armor, we will be ready to fight against the devil. And our Bible verse for today tells us some things we need to do as God’s soldiers. “Pray in the Spirit at all times. Pray with all kinds of prayers, and ask for everything you need. To do this you must always be ready. Never give up. Always pray for all of God’s people.”
In that verse, Paul tells us three things — pray, be ready and never give up. It is important that we pray for God to help us resist the devil and pray for people who need to know about Jesus. We should always be ready to obey God when the devil tempts us. And, we need to remember to never give up serving God and standing strong for Him.
I hope that you are ready to serve in God’s army today!
