With ever new day, with every breath, we have purpose. Every new sunrise is God’s way of saying, “get up, i have another job for you.” A new day is God saying, “I am not finished with you yet.” Rise each day with boldness and put on the whole armor of God.
Most know about the amor of God scripture:
Ephesians 6:10-18 New International Version (NIV)
The Armor of God
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God,so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
Each day you may wake with memories, good and bad. You may feel ready to go and conquer the world, or you may wake to sadness and depression. Many of us wake with the thought of, get ready for work, make it on time, i have a lot to do today, I’ll never be able to just slow down.” Putting on the armor of God helps us through the trials we will face, God’s armor helps us fight the attacks of the enemy, and guids us through our day doing our best to spread God’s love, hope, and word. You were created with great purpose, to do great things. Satan would like nothing better then to strike you down with every lie, every struggle, every memory of your past. The thing about your past though- John 3:16 states that God sent His only son the non should parish, but have ever lasting life.
Acts 2:38 states that to accept His salvation we are to repent and be baptized, everyone, in the name of Jesus Christ and you will receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Your past is forgiven when you repent and go down in the water, through baptism in Jesus name, burying your sins and old flesh.
Once you become a believer and start your life following the word of God, He has big plans for you to bring others to Him. God uses you through prayer, through a witness in your life style changes, and by helping others. Each brand new day is a chance to get up and show God how much you love Him, how much you want to show Him to other people, through your example of Godly love and compassion. Always put His armor on to protect yourself ’cause the enemy will be fighting you in ways he never has before, trying to make you doubt God, to make you give up your fight. Never wave the white flag during a battle with satan, there is never a peaceful surrender with him, when you give up the fight that is when he charges his final blow and destroys the last of your faith. The word of God is powerful, developing a walk with God is phenomenal, and standing tall and strong with God on your side is unstopable. So, each day that God wakes you with breath in your body, each day that He calls you to another battle through prayer-witness-or spiritual warfare, rise to the challenge, put on His armor, and thank Him for believing in you, trusting you, and that He is not finished with you here on this earth just quite yet.
