Kristin, my daughter, loves to remind me when I sent her to the church and forgot to put underwear on her. Even at 3 years old, she knew something was missing that day. During prayer, she lifted her dress up over her head and announced, ”I have no panties.”
That’s what happens when we get so busy. We find ourselves going through life on automatic not focused on what we are doing. The Bible reminds us to guard our hearts and keep our minds on God. A guard from the lies of the evil one, that we are fine without God. Kristin may have looked cute, but she was not fully clothed. We do not want to look good on the outside but be empty without God in the inside.
“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. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 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.”
Ephesians 6:13-18 NIV
With the armor of God on, you are fully dressed and ready to face whatever challenge comes your way. God bless you, 🙏
