Children – Armoring Up Every Morning

Every morning our children head out of our homes unprotected! Why? When it is cold outside, depending on where we live, we give them coats, boots, hats, scarves, and gloves. But we fail to prepare them for the wiles of the day. We do not train them to put on the Whole  Armor of God before they leave home. This invisible armament protects them throughout the day.

Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. (Ephesians 6:11 NLT)

It is important that our children are able to overcome social media, bullying, gossiping and the immorality that exists in our society. 

For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world. (Ephesians 6:12 NLT)

Each morning when my Granddaughter and I say our morning prayers (before leaving the house and going to school), we put on our armor,  it is our protective gear.
