While I take a break from the live morning broadcasts I’ve done for the past 14 months, I will still leave some written encouragement for each day. This week’s focus will be on being protected with the full armor of God.
“Stand firm then, . . . with the breastplate of righteousness in place.”
Ephesians 6:14b (NIV)
As we pause to remember and honor the sacrifices made by so many to secure and protect the freedoms we enjoy, our prayer focus this week will be on the protection available to us by putting on the full armor of God.
Pray that you would be confident that the righteousness you have in Christ will protect your heart and soul. Pray that righteousness, God’s righteousness, would be found in the life of each person you pray for today.
Pray for discernment and wisdom to see beyond and through the divisiveness of this world so that you would love others as God loves both you and them.
So, why does Paul call it the breastplate of righteousness? If we do not protect ourselves with righteousness, we open ourselves up to attack from the enemy and can fall into sin.
