If you know your Bible and are familiar with teaching on prayer and intercession, then I’m sure you will have come across Paul’s direction to the body of Christ in Ephesians 6:10-18.
You will know that as members of the body of Christ, we are encouraged to put on the whole armour of God.
How do we do this?
Pretty much like everything else we have to do when it comes to the supernatural things of God’s kingdom. We do so by faith and through confession (speaking God’s Word).
How did you get saved? You spoke (confession), when you invited Christ into your life and asked him to become your Lord and Saviour.
You believed (faith) that he would hear you and respond.
Whether immediately, or eventually, you experienced the reality. You received an inward witness. You knew that you were saved. You knew that you were changed. You knew that by some marvellous and mystical act, the Spirit of Christ had taken up residence within you.
And in a similar way, that’s how you put on your spiritual armour.
Put it on daily. Put it on before you go out into the fray of daily living. Put it on before you enter the battlefield of prayer. Put it on through confession. Put it on in faith.
If you’d like help in doing this, here’s a prayer you may use.
Victorious overcomers, prayer warriors and prayer interns – have a blessed weekend!
