I always check to see what the weather will be like when I travel. It is usually hot all year where I live. But when I visit my family in another part of the country, it may be cold. I need to be prepared for cold weather by taking a sweater, coat and gloves with me.
In life we experience all kinds of problems. The devil is always trying to tempt us to disobey God. In our Bible verses, Paul told the Christians in Ephesus how to be prepared to fight the devil. Paul says, “Wear God’s armor so that you can fight against the devil’s clever tricks” (verse 11b).
Paul continues to list what we should have so we can be prepared. We should be truthful and live right. We should have the Good News of peace and be strong in our faith. And we should accept God’s salvation and depend on His Word. Wear God’s armor today. Then you will be able to stand strong against the devil and his tricks.
