Working from home is one of the biggest changes to my life over the last few months. I’ve found that little things like stopping for my morning coffee, complaining about traffic, and listening to my favorite morning talk show bring me joy. One thing I don’t miss is picking out what I’m going to wear every day. I’m challenged when it comes to fashion ☹. Despite my struggle and even though I’m working from home; I still get dressed every day. The action helps me prepare my mind to work and I’m ready just in case something out of the ordinary happens. In the same sense, I put on the spiritual garments the Lord has provided me daily, no matter what I have planned:
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you are able to stand…
He has given us instructions not only to help us right now but to also prepare and help us navigate the challenges that are ahead.
Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you may be able to resist when the times are evil, and after you have done everything, to stand firm. Stand firm then!
Read, study, and meditate on the Word so you can stand firm in times of trouble. Clothe yourself now for the battle that is yet to come. You may look ridiculous today (all dressed up and nowhere to go) but you will be preparing yourself for whatever comes your way tomorrow.
- Do you have a favorite scripture that you read daily to encourage yourself?
- If not, consider reading Ephesians 6:13-18
