Ephesians 6:11—Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil….
Father, today I dress myself in the whole armor of God having done all to stand, putting on:
The Helmet of Salvation…. The helmet will keep me from being double-minded. Let the mind of Christ Jesus be in me, that I may cast down all vain imaginations and take captive every idle thought. I choose today to think on whatever is noble, just, pure, lovely, of a good report.
The Breastplate of Righteousness….When I surrendered to the cross of my Savior, I was wrapped in the white robe of Jesus Christ who is all righteousness; it is my breastplate; it will protect my heart, which is the wellspring of life.
The Girdle of Truth…. Jesus is my Savior, the Way, the Truth and the Life. I walk in the truth of who I am in Christ Jesus. I am a lover of Truth for it has set me free.
The Shoes of the Gospel…. I walk in the knowledge that God so loved the world, He sent His Son, Jesus Christ and because of His obedience. I will not be ashamed of the Gospel of the Lord that I serve.
The Shield of Faith…. The shield of faith quenches the fiery darts of the evil one. The Lord is my shield and buckler. You are my Shield, and my exceedingly Great Reward.
The Sword of the Spirit…..The Word of God is more powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword. The Sword of the Living God will pierce the hardness of the heart allowing light to penetrate, bringing repentance, healing and restoration.
Unceasing Prayer…. I will pray for the saints without ceasing that He will be their protector, provider, and the lifter of their heads.
The Promises Of God Belong Only To Those Who Have Surrendered Their Lives To Christ and been cleansed In His blood! John 1:12, says, but as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name. God‘s promises can be considered as spiritual certificates of deposit and we are spiritual heirs to these deposits. Christ has paid the price for us at the Cross and allows us to present our drafts, the promises to claim that which God has promised to provide. In return, we receive the great blessings God has pledged to us by, through and on account of His Son, Jesus Christ. His promises belong only to those who are children of God through faith: Heirs according to His Word. They belong to those who have joined into a spiritual union with Christ and have clothed themselves with His robe of righteousness. God‘s promises are given on condition of our willingness to listen to His voice and obey His commands.
If you will listen diligently to he voice of the Lord your God, being watchful to follow all His commandments, which I command you this day, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. All these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you if you heed the voice of the Lord your God.
Now, by this we know that we know him if we keep His commandments. He who says, “I know Him,“ and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the Truth is not in him. But, whoever keeps His Word truly the love of God I perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.

Live like you love it
Even though it is unpleasant, you can do it if you must. Even if it is difficult and complicated, you can work your way through it when you choose.
Select your path not because it is easy but because it is right, for you, for your world, for your purpose, for your life. Spend your precious time not just to pass the time, but to build meaningful value.
See that in each challenge is a new way to grow stronger. Know that in each problem is an opportunity to move forward.
When the results are not what you expected, that‘s no reason to lower your expectations. Instead, learn from the disappointment, raise your expectations even higher, and fashion a more effective approach.
This is your life and this very day is your chance to fill it with real and meaningful substance. This is when you can experience the special beauty and fullness of what it means to be you.
Whatever the constraints, whatever the situation, live like you love it. And you will.
