Most of you probably already know this, but I wanted to share anyways because it finally clicked with me. My pastor's wife was speaking to us a couple Mondays ago and said that when ever she goes somewhere she puts on the armor of God. I couldn't remember it all so I googled it. The best site I found was speaking to military families-
'Do this—visually step through the spiritual armor, from head to toe, found in Ephesians 6 and try to think how you could pray for your spouse as we “put on” each piece of the armor:
Helmet of Salvation.
Breastplate of Righteousness.
Belt of Truth.
Shield of Faith.
Sword of the Spirit.
Feet Shod with the Preparation of the Gospel of Peace.
The teaching on the spiritual armor in Ephesians 6 ends with this instruction from verse 18: “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 saints.” Pray. '
It just seemed fitting with the lyrics that I always have in my head- "the Lord is with you mighty warrior, so rise, so rise.."
I never thought of actually visualizing myself wearing the armor. But it helps, I like it
