Oh To Be Wise Meditations
Love is the greatest of virtues. I need it for my spiritual armor. I cannot swing my sword without love lest I become dull. If I have no love my helmet of salvation does not fit properly. And I take the blows to the head shattering my faith. My belt of truth fits loosely because I have lost the love for the truth leaving me susceptible to open shame exposing my nakedness of sin. And my gospel shoes of peace are worn because I have harbored hate and chaos in my heart. Having lost the love to share peace and joy to others. Without love my breastplate is not secured, exposing the vital organs of spiritual life. I must protect the Spirit of Christ inside me and not grieve him away.
Lastly, my shield of Faith I lose protection because I start to doubt Gods love for me. I become weak by the enemies attacks as I drop my shield little by little taking on full blows to my heart and mind. Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word from the mouth of God. Give me love for you word and love for your presence in my life. Jesus you are my sustaining power and strength behind every piece of spiritual armor you have given me. Holy Spirt, make me a fierce in the hands of the Living God.
