the full armor of God

I recently finished the She Reads Truth, Ephesians devo plan and the last day really encouraged me. (the reading was Ephesians 6:10-20) It starts out with the awesome encouragement that we can be strong in His might and then lists the armor of God. I think the author of the SRT devo for this day hit it on the head:

"I love that this section in Ephesians starts with the (correct) assumption that on our own, in our own strength, we've got nothing. Yet it ends with us fully armed & able to stand as warriors in the kingdom of God.....& when Paul bids us farewell with grace and peace we can contently sigh. Yes, we feel both those things." 

it's so good. What an encouragement that He gives us everything we need to be protected from the "schemes of the devil." He is so good to us, it is seriously ridiculous. If you haven't read Ephesians recently I'd encourage you to! It is fascinating how much more you learn every time you read His living Word. 

That's all I got for now! (whew, writing really exhausts me!)
