“Whew! Today I have to get dressed. What will I wear? Will it be the red dress or the black one? And what shoes and accessories will I wear? What about my handbag? So many decisions…just too many doggone decisions.”  Does this sound like you in the morning? Or perhaps you prepare your outfits for work, school, or that special event the day before or even days beforehand. This is really a chore sometimes and if you’re a lady you know what I’m talking about. But let’s keep first things first to ensure each day we are properly dressed and prepared for the days journey. You might ask: What do you mean? I’ve laid out all of my clothing so what else is left to do? Glad you asked. Allow me to tell you.

Ephesians 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  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.

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

As you are preparing for each new day that God gifts you with, make sure you are properly dressed for the day. Not just the outfit and accessories but make sure you’re covered to prepare and protect yourselves against the wiles or attacks of the enemy. Yeah, the clothing…that’s nice and all but the main way to ensure we are appropriately dressed for the day is through ensuring we’ve read or listened to our word, meditated on the word, offered up praise and thanksgiving to God and then and only then are we appropriately dressed to deal with the issues of the day.
