Wednesday In The Word-Armor of God

I read a true story once about a motorcycle policeman that saw a red pickup truck speed through a stop sign. He turned on his lights and managed to get the man to pull over. As the policeman was walking up to the drivers window the man driving is saying to himself, " The cop already knows what I have done". The man reached for his gun that he had just used to rob a store.The officer said, "Good morning sir, may I see your......" He never finished his sentence. The driver fired his gun just inches from the officer's chest knocking him seven feet away. Seconds later, the criminal was shocked to see the officer stand up and pull his revolver. The driver shouted, "Don't shoot" as he tossed his weapon and stolen money out of the window. What saved the officer's life? The dozen layers of super strong fabric used for a bullet-proof vest. 

 Thought for today: If the officer has not had on the bullet-proof vest it could have cost him his life. The same is true for Christians. Without our Spiritual armor the enemy is waiting to attack us, especially where we are weak. Just as the vest was a defense for the officer so is the armor of God our defense.

  2. Thank you Cindy for these words. What a great reminder to get fully 'dressed' every morning. Not just dressed in our clothes, but dressed in God's Word. Blessings..

  3. AMEN! Every time we step out that door we step into battle. It amazes me how we think we have a chance without God's whole armor on! Hope you had a good day!
