7/22/14 Daily Devotion

Ephesians 6:14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,

The breastplate of a soldier protected the vital organs, especially the heart. One powerful thrust of a sword to a soldier’s chest, and he was surely on his way out of this world, thus the importance of the breastplate. For the Christian, the breastplate is comparable to, in the least two things: the Word of God and the presence of God. The power to guide and protect our hearts is found within the attitude we have in regards to the Word of God and His presence within our lives. If we take seriously the need to study, if we take seriously our relationship with God, we will be covered with a hedge of protection, a hedge that cannot be cut down without our permission.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me embrace the power of Your presence and Your Word within my life, that I might be able to stand firm upon You and Your desires for my life.
