The Right Ingredients

“Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” Ephesians 6:13 King James Version

I was hungry for a salad and had all the ingredients to make the salad but I didn’t make it until the next day. All day long, I wanted that salad because I knew how delicious it would taste yet I didn’t make it until the next day. We do the same thing with God at times. He has already given us all the ingredients to live a victorious and happy and peaceful life yet we don’t always use the ingredients He has given us.

If you will read Ephesians chapter six, you will find that He has given us instructions on how to have less stress and heartaches yet there are times when we don’t put on the whole armour of God. It is never His fault when we have a bad day. If we fail to put on the whole armour of God when we wake up, it is our fault, not His fault. There are things that come our way that we can’t do anything about but we can go to Him and ask Him to please help us through them.

Are you using the ingredients God has provided for you to live a happy life? No matter what comes our way, if we have accepted Jesus as our personal Saviour we will never be alone because our precious Saviour has promised us that He will never leave us, not even for one minute. As soon as you wake up in the morning, even before you get out of bed give your day to God. Ask Him to please protect you and lead you. You will find you will have a much better day but even more important you will make Him happy because you spent time with Him.
