Armor up!

– The Lord’s mysterious hand has once again shown me the way to go.
A  friend wrote, that I “just needed to put on the armor of God again”… And I thought I did.
My dear fellow blogger Jennifer Deg – the winds, the waves and the anchor wrote a comment saying “try to see yourself as God sees you” (which is a part of the armor) and yesterday morning my girl  said “I know the armor of God, but I don’t know how to use it”…
That really made me think that it couldn’t be just for fun. When the Lord speaks in multiples, you better listen!
So I dug into the armor and even though I know it, have read it lots of times etc, I learned many new things.
I then made a poster intended for my daughter so narrowed it down to a minimum of words and aimed entirely at how to use the armor. I plan on hanging it by my entrance door…

Ephesians 6:10-18

Wear the Full Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his great power. 11 Wear the full armor of God. Wear God’s armor so that you can fight against the devil’s evil tricks. 12 Our fight is not against people on earth. We are fighting against the rulers and authorities and the powers of this world’s darkness. We are fighting against the spiritual powers of evil in the heavenly world. 13 That is why you need to get God’s full armor. Then on the day of evil you will be able to stand strong. And when you have finished the whole fight, you will still be standing. 14 So stand strong, with the belt of truth tied around your waist. And on your chest wear the protection of right living. 15 And on your feet wear the Good News of peace to help you stand strong. 16 And also use the shield of faith. With that you can stop all the burning arrows of the Evil One. 17 Accept God’s salvation to be your helmet. And take the sword of the Spirit—that sword is the teaching of God. 18 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.

  1. I learnt in a book years ago about putting on the armour its actually very simple and only needs to be done once each day, its simply a prayer like this, “jesus clothe me with your spiritual armour” and you can thank him for it to after you put it on. ive actually felt on a number of occasions it being put on, its instant as soon as you ask, it comes on your whole body inside you and when you are blessed to be able to feel it being put on at times, you may even feel a difference in how you feel and have more calm or peacefullness and also one time when i put it on i was in a town in a foreign country and experiencing troubling thoughts and i put it on like i said above and instantly the thoughts left, no trouble again and the same in another country, it can really change your day when you feel it put on, but i must say, its not always experienced this way, ive often put it on and not noticed anything different in how i feel but because of the times ive felt it come on i know the prayer is effective so i do it when i think to. and sometimes it can help you pray better, it feels as though it makes prayer easier for your soul when the armour is on so ive noticed a number of times, it actually calms me down and im not so over the top in trying to pray so intensely, but you still can pray fiery prayer its just different.

      1. Yes, your pain was obviously intense, Lene. I spent most of the day in prayer for you, and friends prayed for you as well. I have no doubt that many others did the same. Abba loves you so much and He made sure that you were on our minds!! Chazak, Chakzak! Venit Chazek! (Hebrew blessing: Strong, strong, and let us be strengthened! follows the conclusion of each of the five books of the Torah.) ❤ ❤ ❤
