The Whole Armor of God and Prayer
"Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;" (Ephesians 6:18)
Having put on the whole armor of God, it is only proper to fight the spiritual battle with prayer. What better way to prove to God and to ourselves that we totally depend on the Lord, we do this when we pray. Remember each peice of the panoply of God is equally important. It must be viewed as a whole. It is indeed God's armor meaning He furnished all of it for us. If we are to win (and we will) we must be strong in the Lord, taking up the whole armor that God has provided. Ultimately, if a Christian is living a defeated life it is because they choose to disobey the Lord in refusing to put on the whole armor of God. This study makes me want to sing "Victory In Jesus" and certainly our victory is with Him. Praise be to God!
