And this is why you need to be head-to-toe in the full armor of God: so you can resist during these evil days and be fully prepared to hold your ground. Eph 6:13
I had a great revelation the other day via Wendell Parr:
Paraphrasing – it is the armor OF God that we put on, (think about it, God’s very own armor); therefore when you’re in the armor OF God the devil doesn’t know that it is not God he’s come up against, until you lift the helmet to say “it’s only me” 🙂
