I know as a Christian, the Armor of God consist of faith and my connection to God. We can also use the word armor to mean many different things. Some think clothing that protect against the bitter cold as a type of armor. Others think of the healthy foods they eat as their armor. They think the healthy foods help fight diseases. Most recently I heard the vaccine referred to as the ultimate armor in the fight against the coronavirus. Christians also know what the Ultimate Armor for them is made up of. Warriors also know what armor is needed when in battle.
Foods Used As Armor In Boosting Our Immune Systems:
As the coronavirus creates havoc throughout the world, many of us are looking for numerous ways in which we to stay safe. The only way to stay safe, is if we lived alone and stayed inside and never venture to the outdoors. This is not something that is feasible, so in the mean time we look for various ways to stay healthy, as we never know who we may encounter.
Some of the ways we can stay healthy is to get enough rest daily, get fresh air, take our vitamin C, take our vitamin D, Calcium, and of course don’t forget to take your zinc, as it will give a fantastic boost to our immune systems. We also cannot discount the importance of masks and the controversial vaccine.
Armed With Masks When Venturing Outdoors:
When going outdoors we never know what or whom we may encounter, so its good to carry some hand sanitizer with us, and we should also make sure that we have our masks, in case we come in close contact with others. Keep your distance from others and in that way you are doing your best to be in your armor.
Waiting To Be Armed:
Vaccines are now available and some are anxiously waiting to get them in order to be protected. It seems to be a slow process, as the coronavirus and the new variants spread, we hope they won’t win the race in the war against vaccinations.
Each day on the news we will see frontline workers as they are being vaccinated. As I was watching, one lady received her vaccine, and she joyously exclaimed, “I now have my armor. I have may armor.
What The Ultimate Armor Of God Is:
Many of the things listed above I try to do on a daily basis in order to stay safe. Perhaps if we didn’t take vitamins before, or if we didn’t get enough rest, or ate healthy, now is a very good time to start, and we should also try to maintain all of these healthy tips long after COVID19 have left us.
There is another type of armor that we should all consider wearing, and that is “The Armor Of God.” This is the Ultimate Armor.
In the next several verses, the Bible tells us what armor we need to wear.
Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;
18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints
19 and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel,
20 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. Ephesians 6:14-20
- God’s Word is truth and we should be filled with it
- Our hearts should be filled with God’s goodness and purity.
- We should be living peaceable lives, telling others of God and His goodness wherever we may go.
- We should be daily trusting and depending on God, building on our faith. This will do wonders for us Physically, Spiritually and Mentally.
- We should daily fill our minds with the saving Power of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, through the reading of God’s Word.
When we live in this manner, we become connected to God and Him to us. He strengthens our minds taking us from day to day, from trial to trial, and though we may fall, it becomes easier for us to stand up once again. This is my Ultimate Armor of God.Try Audible Plus Try Audible Plus https://www.shutterstock.com/g/Elle777?rid=223006761 https://www.redbubble.com/i/mask/Ice-On-The-Rocks-by-lrant999/70985287.6BSL1?asc=u
