Dear Daughter,

Don’t forget your armor.

Love, Dad

There is this chapter in the Bible, called Ephesians. It paints a beautiful picture of the armor that God has given us for battle. ‘What kind of battles’ you may ask? Well anything from our day-to-day struggles, to the ones we fight behind the scenes. He’s given us everything we need to not only fight those battles, but also stand victorious on the other side of them. Practically He has given us 6 key elements( are pieces of armor) from the shield of faith, to the sword of the Spirit, to the shoes that bring forth the peace of the Gospel, to the buckle of truth, to the breastplate of righteousness, to the helmet of salvation. When we use all of those together- we have everything we need to be battle ready. Once more, when we choose to dress ourselves with those elements daily, we are ready for anything.

So what is your battle stance today, girls? Are you suited up and ready for action? Have you put on every bit of your armor -knowing that with His armor you stand undefeated!

If you get a chance, try reading Ephesians 6 aloud and Picture yourself putting on this armor before your leave the house today, and watch and see what God does through you.

“Take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.”

Ephesians 6:16
