Finally, the Christian armour is incomplete without an active prayer-life and an active lifestyle of faith.
“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.” (Ephesians 6:18-20)
We are in the time of the Holy Spirit, and nothing can be achieved unless we submit to the leading of the Spirit of God in our lives.
Jesus instructed His disciples to watch and pray, and sent the Holy Spirit to all those who believed in Him.
You can try to live for Jesus as much as you want. You will continue to struggle more than you can imagine.
God gave us the Holy Spirit to fulfil His work in our lives. When the Word of God is obeyed, the Spirit of God empowers believers to live like Jesus.
Studying the Word of God, and Praying in the Spirit and with understanding, is critical for us to grow, and go through any trial, overcome any temptation.
Every believer must realise that he or she is an ambassador of Christ. Trust in Jesus to fill your mouth with wisdom and knowledge, and share sound counsel, when you need it the most. When have the faith of the Son of God, the Spirit of God manifests His gifts according to the need of the hour. Utterance flows, and it won’t even matter how educated or intelligent you are.
God loves all, and empowers all those who submit to Him. The armour of God is a necessary insight for all believers.
Meditate, apply, and receive your victory during your times of inadequacy or loneliness or depression.
To stand, put on the whole armour, the breastplate of righteousness, and belt of truth, the feet shod with sandals to carry the message of peace, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit (Word of God).
