The Whole Armor



Ephesians 6:10-18 explains the Armor of God, the pieces are; The belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shoes of the preparation of the gospel of peace, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation and the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God.


I really enjoy this passage and today while I was studying about the helmet of salvation it occurred to me what it was. It really is or hope of living in eternity in all joy and gladness. No more sin, no more temptations, no more sorrow. Thinking about the helmet when tempted to take the reins in my own life (Something that I don't want to do, rather I want God to have the reins and therefore the Glory) helps me to see the bigger picture. I just need to slow down and let God instead of trying to speed up the process. I want, I need, I will, I can, I do... turns to I want to wait on God, I need to wait on God, I will wait on God, I can wait on God, I do wait on God and then it is so much better than if I tried to hurry up the process.
