Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes.
— Ephesians 6:11
Thoughts on Today's Verse...
So often we are focused only on the things we like, we are good at doing, or we are interested in accomplishing. God wants us to use every piece of his spiritual armor. He wants us to be disciplined and grow in the areas of our spiritual weakness and the areas we don't necessarily find exciting or interesting. Our evil opponent is crafty and will try to attack us in the areas of our weakness and vulnerability. So let's not just commit to be diligent in the areas of our interest and strength, but especially in those areas where we are not.
Father, strengthen me in the areas where I am most vulnerable to sin or lethargy. Open my eyes to help me see my areas of weakness. Rekindle my heart to passionately seek after your holiness. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
