Passage: Ephesians 6:10-23
Verse: Ephesians 6:13 (NIV)
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.
The Scripture surrounding this verse reminds us that the full armor of God is about truth, righteousness, peace, faith, salvation, and the word of God. These things, combined with prayer and the power of the Lord, are what make it possible for us to stand; we can stand firm against the evil forces of this world. There are days when I dare not venture out without claiming the protection that is afforded me, as a believer, by the full armor of God. At those times when we suspect we may be under spiritual attack, may we remember to “suit up” and pray! (inspired by Reflecting God – Devotions for Holy Living, WordAction Publishing Company)
