The armor of God 3


“...and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.” Ephesians 6:15
The third element of the armor is your shoes.
The shoes used by the Roman Soldiers were a specific kind of boots that had laces that crossed over and were up to the ankles. These shoes allowed them to march for long distances. And even until today in the army, in some cases the soldiers are told not to take off their boots while they sleep, so that they can be prepared, just in case during the middle of the night there is some kind of emergency,
In the same way, we must be prepared for battle, knowing that we will come across struggles, but always showing forth God’s peace in our actions. That peace is reflected in our attitude, our words and it doesn’t go unnoticed by those who we desire to reach out to.
God counts with us to announce His word and also take that peace to those in anguish and in need. We should always be ready because of this so that we don’t loose a single opportunity.

so true, we should always be ready. When we are sleeping the devil is working. Something i got told a while ago is that we should keep one eye open when we sleep (our spiritual eyes) we cannot afford to sleep spiritually, just like if in the army an enemy attacks and you don't wake up, you will probably get killed, so if we are sleeping spiritually and the devil attacks, we can die spiritually and sometimes physically.

We can only be ready at all times through the peace that the Holy Spirit leave in us and when we are in communion with Him. The key is to be in tune with Him "leaving the chanel open!"

We must constantly be wearing the armor of God because He calls us at any time and we must always be prepared.

Dear Mrs.Tania what you are saying is true we should always be ready for war by always feeding or Spiritual life so that when the devil comes to attack us we may be ready to use the weapons God has given us and use them exactly the way He has taught us to.

Very true, we have to be ready always, if one sleeps in faith even for a short time, the devil comes because he is always timing a chance to deceive even those who are elected, what keeps us ready again is when we constantly feed our spirit with the spiritual things of God.
