Day 10: Bringing God into Your Everyday
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. Ephesians 6:10
We were never meant to fight alone. God promises to go with us and to give us his armor against the devil’s schemes. However, it’s up to us to invite God into our battles every day and put on his armor before we go out into the world. He wants to empower us from the inside out, and he’s just waiting for us to ask him for his help. We may be able to make it on our own strength for a little while, but only by God’s mighty power can we overcome in the long run. He loves to pair his “super” with our “natural” so that we can achieve the impossible. When we choose to bring God into our everyday lives, we are bringing strength to deal with whatever the day chooses to bring. Disappointment, sadness, hurt, and confusion can cause our lives to spiral out of control but when we bring God into the day, we find the strength to stand.
Mighty God, thank you for empowering us with your strength. We invite you into our everyday lives and ask for your power to work in us and through us, protecting us from the devil’s schemes. We take up your armor, the weapon of your Word and your spirit, and we know that we have nothing to fear with you on our side.
