A Daily Devotion for Tuesday, September 8
Updated: Sep 9, 2020
Ephesians 6: 13-20
verses 17-18: Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
Lately I have felt God reminding me to pray, to talk to Him. We can’t know someone well unless we talk to them. And what brings two people close is the sharing part. If I talk more to God, and share my hopes, fears, regrets and successes, He will know me better, and I will see Him more clearly. I know God sees and knows everything already, but I believe it is the process of making ourselves vulnerable to God which brings us closer. And in turn we understand God a little better when we see His movement in our lives. When we show God our vulnerabilities, He can provide us with the armor we need.
Heavenly Father, I need to spend more time in prayer. You provide me with all of the armor I need to survive in this existence, and the next. I want to know you better, and to utilize everything you have made available to me. Amen
