Daily Devotional – Fortified Beneath God

Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Ephesians 6: 10-18. Are you taking the armor available to you and protecting yourself each day? In order for us to stand strong, we need to be surrounded by God’s armor.

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.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. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. 

It’s not by my might and strength, but that of God. In this battle of spiritual principalities and powers, our will, desire, and strength are like nothing. After all, it is God’s battle!

We are weak and unable to stand our ground in our own power. We stand firm because of God’s armor that He has given to us! Let’s not give up an easy opportunity today for our enemy to have a hollow victory. Instead, let us put on God’s armor today.  It is His gift to us for protection.

Let’s Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you that you giving us Your armor God. I know that the armor cannot protect me unless I wear it, placing it over my head and body. Today I stand firm and strong because of Your strength and Your armor.

In Jesus’ name, Amen
