Have you ever forgotten to get dressed?

Ephesians 6:11—Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.

  • What are we told to do? Why?
  • What kind of schemes does the devil use?
  • What schemes has he used against you?

I’ve made it a habit to put on my armor every day. I know the enemy will try whatever schemes he can against me—and you. We need to be ready for him so that he can’t succeed.

Earlier this month we looked about how we are seated with Christ in the heavenly realms (Eph. 2:6). We need to remember that amazing fact. Jesus already won the victory. We just need to put on the armor He gave us and take our stand. We’ll talk about standing more in upcoming days.

Paul  wrote this book, it is believed from Rome. He was used to seeing the Roman guards with all their armor. This letter was probably written from prison, since he mentioned in Eph 4:1, “As a prisoner for the Lord…”

If you haven’t memorized Ephesians 6:10-18, I’d encourage you to start now. Yes, it’s a long passage. Start by writing it out on a card and read it every day. These are important verses you need to know and use every day for the rest of your life!

Check out this free article about “Being Effective in Spiritual Warfare.” I want to encourage you to read it.

Blessing on you as you serve our Lord, in whatever capacity He has called you to—from being a parent, teacher, missionary, etc. I pray for you as I write these and would love to hear any specifics I can pray for you. You can email me directly at gaylyn @rrbooks.org.

Joni Shepherd said about All Stressed Up and Everywhere to Go!

“This is an excellent and practical tool for anyone dealing with stress. It is useful for both individual use and group use. The best part is that the authors use scripture throughout the book and the personal study sections, showing the reader how to apply it directly and practically to his or her life. It would be impossible to read this book and do the Bible studies and not grow in your relationship with God and others.”
