Trump wears body armor when out in public. Smart! He knows the threat against him is very real. While we may not have people actually gunning for us like Trump does, we need to know there is a real threat against our lives too. God told us so in Ephesians chapter six and elsewhere. We too need physical protection and putting on our spiritually body armor is a part of God’s daily protection plan. Physical protection equipment used to be heavy, expensive and not very practical for day to day use. Especially for the knights of old. But our spiritual armor is lighter than a feather. The Bible needs to be taken seriously:
“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness, And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;”
When you get into the shower in the morning is a good time to appropriate this protection for the day. Supernatural protection is very real for it is demons who are behind the evil in the world and they are under God’s mighty power. Satan goes about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour (I Peter 5:8). It makes great sense to be clothed in the armor of God.
