Summer often brings opportunities for vacations. As we prepare for vacations, we try to remember everything that we think we will need for our time away from home. Whether we make lists and check them twice or use another system, we probably track our preparations. When we prepare for our spiritual journeys, we should also prepare!
God gives us His armor as we prepare for the challenges we may face along the way. We also have a "checklist" in Ephesians to remind us of the armor that He provides. However, it is up to us to put on His armor, to use these resources along our journey. God gives us what we need to be prepared. It is up to us to use what He has given us!
Follow God's directions for preparation and put on His armor!
Thank You for giving me what I need. Help me to always listen to You so I am prepared for my journey. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
