Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace.
In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.
Good to remember this!ReplyDelete
This is a favorite Scripture of mine, we did a women's Bible study on Priscilla Shirer's book "The Armor of God." Did you see her acting in War Room?ReplyDelete
I have not seen it, but I know who she is.Delete
Good to remember that we are under attack from the evil one, and must put on God's armor every day.ReplyDelete
It is important to remember.Delete
Wishing you peace, Sandi. And a beautiful image to go with the words.ReplyDelete
You too, Jeanie. Thank you!Delete
Have a wonderful weekend.ReplyDelete
You too, William!Delete
If we are going to stand we need all this gear!ReplyDelete
We need all that armor just to live in this world!ReplyDelete
We sure do!Delete
Great Bible verses and a lovely picture.ReplyDelete
I LOVE this chapter of Ephesians...and try to remember to put on the "whole armor of God" every day. In today's world, we sure need to keep our armor on. So many fiery darts are being shot at the believers...we need to stand firm and keep our eyes on Jesus. The time is short....ReplyDelete
Amen to that, Pamela...amen to that.Delete
You have probably seen my husbands wood carvings on my blog. A few years ago our Pastor did a sermon series on this passage and Bob carved a Roman soldier with all the armor to go with it. It's sitting in our living room, so I have a regular reminder of that passage.ReplyDelete
I have seen some of them. Have you posted a photo of the Roman soldier? I would love to see it!Delete
This is such an excellent part of the Word of God to hide in our hearts and put into practice daily and through out the day as there is a spiritual battle we face on going in our walk with Christ.ReplyDelete
I'm thankful that we have the Bible, Gods Word, to guide our lives and that we can freely read it.
Joy to you ♡
Me too. In some parts of the world it is illegal.Delete
I have always admired people who face great evil with courage. I am grateful that I have lived in safety and peace when so many others in this world have have not. I don't know why I should be so lucky and others not. I hope that I would prove courageous if I had to face great evil. These verses from Ephesians always make me think about these things. Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
We have so much to be thankful for.Delete
Funny...you strike me as courageous. I bet you are stronger than you think.
Thanks, Sandi! I generally consider myself to have courage, but then I have never been confronted by truly horrible things. Enjoy your weekend!Delete
Beautiful words like the picture.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Catalin.Delete

"shield of the faith" yes this is the only true protector my friend!ReplyDelete

So true, Baili! :-)Delete
Good to see you!!
how can anyone not say 'Amen' to those scriptures.
God bless, Sandi.
The beautiful gospel! If you have a faith you will have the whole armor of God to stay strong!ReplyDelete
'The armor of God' is the 'shield of faith'; to put in one word - Faith. It is in us , in our spirit, our mind.ReplyDelete
We cannot live without Faith.
So important to remember that God has given us these survival skills.ReplyDelete
