Unlimited: When Your Armour is Too Big

Sep 3, 2019 1949

Put on the full armour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes (Ephesians 6:11, NIV).

When David volunteered to take on Goliath the giant, he found that the armour was too big for him (1 Samuel 17:39). So, David went to face Goliath with five stones and a sling (verse 40). But he wasn’t naked. Instead of wearing Saul’s armour, he had much better armour. David said to Goliath, I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel (1 Samuel 17:45, NIV).

The Bible says that as Christians, we are to wear a great, big armour: the armour of God (Ephesians 6:11-13). I often feel like I don’t fit in my armour.

What do you do when you think you don’t fit your armour? The world is sick of seeing pretenders and fakers who wear their Christianity before the world with false pride and self-righteousness. These have done more harm to the cause of Christ than the most militant atheists.

The world needs to see Christians who wear their armour with confident vulnerability. They wear their armour with confidence because they rest in the merits and grace of the Lord. They wear their armour with vulnerability because they can face their own weaknesses and faults, knowing they have been accepted and forgiven by God in Christ.

Eli’s Reflection: What has God called you to do in your life? Do you think you are up to the task? Pray to be able to wear the armour of God with confidence and humility.

God is calling everyone to serve him all the time. However, if he wants you to serve him in a special, particular way you will have no doubt if you are attuned to his voice. You need to be spending time in prayer with him, and in his Word.

Your relationship with God is like any other relationship, in that the more time you spend with him, the more you will learn to know his voice. How call will also always agree with his Word.
