The Lord said to me, “Whenever you lose your armor, you become vulnerable.”
How do we lose our armor?
When we stop believing the good news of salvation which says that the blood of Jesus has set us free
When we stop reading our Bible
When we stop praying
When we stop seeking the Lord’s face
When we no longer rejoice in the Lord and celebrate Him
When we are not filled and covered by the glory of God
When we refuse to thank God, praise Him and worship Him.
When we delight in and live in sins that we know we can forsake but do not want to, because of it’s pleasures and rewards.
When we do not care about praying and interceding for other saints.
Putting on the complete armor of God is not an option but a must. It is vitally essential to our christian existence, victory and success. When you lose your armor, you become naked and vulnerable, without even noticing that you are naked and unprotected
You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. Revelation 3:17
Beloved, please always put on your armor. It is your inner covering, garment and protection. When you are putting on your armor, no one or power can steal from you and rape you. You will have fellowship with the Holy Spirit only, because your hedge is not broken, missing or weak.

1 I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. 2 I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High.
3 My enemies turn back; they stumble and perish before you. 4 For you have upheld my right and my cause, sitting enthroned as the righteous judge. 5 You have rebuked the nations and destroyed the wicked; you have blotted out their name for ever and ever. 6 Endless ruin has overtaken my enemies, you have uprooted their cities; even the memory of them has perished.
7 The Lord reigns forever; he has established his throne for judgment. 8 He rules the world in righteousness and judges the peoples with equity. 9 The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. 10 Those who know your name trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.
11 Sing the praises of the Lord, enthroned in Zion; proclaim among the nations what he has done. 12 For he who avenges blood remembers; he does not ignore the cries of the afflicted.
13 Lord, see how my enemies persecute me! Have mercy and lift me up from the gates of death, 14 that I may declare your praises in the gates of Daughter Zion, and there rejoice in your salvation.
15 The nations have fallen into the pit they have dug; their feet are caught in the net they have hidden. 16 The Lord is known by his acts of justice; the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands.c]”>[c] 17 The wicked go down to the realm of the dead, all the nations that forget God. 18 But God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish.
19 Arise, Lord, do not let mortals triumph; let the nations be judged in your presence. 20 Strike them with terror, Lord; let the nations know they are only mortal.
The Lord has promised that he himself will be a wall of fire around the city to protect it and that he will live there in all his glory.” Zechariah 2:5
As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people both now and forevermore. Psalm 125:2
The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. Psalm 34:7
We need to get to the place where God is holding us. In this place of safely, protection and glory, God’s aura and presence surrounds us like a wall of fire. Nothing can penetrate this hedge, seal and wall.
When we are in this place of safety, who will harm us? How can they harm us? No, they cannot harm us because God is holding us.
May we get to the place of constant glory and protection in Jesus name.
The Lord will be your refuge and protection. He will show up when you least expect Him to. You will marvel at the Lord’s goodness and mercy.
1 Why do the nations conspirea]”>[a] and the peoples plot in vain? 2 The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed, saying, 3 “Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.”
4 The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. 5 He rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath, saying, 6 “I have installed my king on Zion, my holy mountain.”
7 I will proclaim the Lord’s decree:
He said to me, “You are my son; today I have become your father. 8 Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession. 9 You will break them with a rod of ironb]”>[b]; you will dash them to pieces like pottery.”
10 Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth. 11 Serve the Lord with fear and celebrate his rule with trembling. 12 Kiss his son, or he will be angry and your way will lead to your destruction, for his wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
The Lord watches over the righteous, He will preserve you. He will be your shield and keep you from harm. The Lord will crown you with lovingkindness and favor.
1 Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, 2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. 3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers.
4 Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away. 5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
6 For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.
