Verse of the Day - Ephesians 6:13

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.

Ephesians 6:13

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Since we are in a spiritual war, we must put on our spiritual armor. More than saying our daily prayers and perfunctorily reading our daily Scriptures, we must learn to recognize the spiritual armor God has given us that Paul details in the following verses (Ephesians 6:13-20). This spiritual armor is for our spiritual protection to help us prepare for spiritual warfare. We should approach each day, each task, each Scripture, and each challenge with a sense of urgency because we know we are at war. The day of evil will come. The evil one will get some of his attacks against us to penetrate our hearts. So, let's be ready to take our stand using the tools God has supplied and the power he provides.

My Prayer...

Dear Father in Heaven, please empower me with your Holy Spirit (Ephesians 3:14-21). I want to boldly serve you because of your heavenly calling on me. Please inspire me to be spiritually courageous because of Jesus's example and his repeated triumphs over the evil one. In his name, I pray. Amen.
