“So then, take your stand! Fasten truth around your waist like a belt. Put on God’s approval as your breastplate. Put on your shoes so that you are ready to spread the Good News that gives peace.” (Ephesians 6: 14-15, God’s Word Translation)
Here’s how to really get dressed and ready for our day! We can see what we already have in our spiritual closets and properly clothe ourselves for success, freedom, a winning and worthwhile day.
We can take our stand against whatever mortal life wants to throw at us. This firm stance is not about willfulness or human bravery or endurance. It is about being equipped, by God, with all that Spirit has to offer. These infinite qualities of Spirit prepare us for what is needed.
We have the Truth of God’s presence, power, and of our own divine heritage. This girds us with authority. We have God’s Love, His approval, as our breastplate. Our defense comes because we are God’s beloved, His cherished, and because we know this. This knowledge engenders fearlessness.
And we can put on our shoes and go forth! When we’ve taken that conscientious stand with God, recognizing His presence, we also know what our job is. We know that what He has given us, this wonderful and healing Truth, needs to be spread in the world, through the way in which we live our lives. We can go forward confidently sharing this good news that brings true peace for all.
