3 Important Things I’ve Learned About The Armor of God

The armor we wear...

Sometimes in my life I’ve felt so loaded down with burdens, so obligated to other people and other agendas that I don’t know how I can bear up under it. I stumble along, until finally I realize I’m carrying other people’s expectations on my back, and they’re affecting me in a terrible way.

This is when God has to take me aside and remind me, again, of that lesson from David’s life.

It’s easy to remember the David and Goliath story. It’s big and bombastic and exciting. But it’s a little easier to forget that lesson in the beginning of the story, when David tries to put on Saul’s armor. I used to wonder why God even put that portion of the story in there.

Until I grew up, and started putting on other people’s armor.

This story in 1 Samuel 17:32-40 is about battle armor, which usually is compared to rules and regulations that other people put on us. But I think it also applies to the burdens that other people might try to get us to carry around – the expectations, the demands on our schedule, the self-judgment that declares we aren’t living up to our own ideals.

All these things are the “armor” we put on every day in order to prepare ourselves for what needs to happen on the battlefield of life.

God is Love

Love Says the Hard Thing

Do you ever think about how God’s definition of love looks nothing like our definition of love? We could blame Hollywood here, but let’s face it, Hollywood is a reflection of the way our society thinks. Based on what we see in our entertainment,…

Procrastination. Does anyone else struggle with this? Please tell me I’m not alone. A little more than two years ago, I lost one of those tiny pins that help hold my glasses together. I tend to not take care of things I need very…

Faith Works

I’ve been discussing ways to stay fresh in our daily walk with God… something I’ve found I need so much more the older I get. The first two points were to see things through the eyes of new Christians, and to keep a proper…

Living a Passionate New Christian Life

Fresh or Stale? In my first post, I talked about the difference between seeing our Christian walk with a fresh attitude, versus a stale attitude. Am I seeing the Bible as something new and amazing? Or has it become commonplace? Recently I was in…

Am I Fresh or Stale?
