I suppose as you read this title, many thoughts came to mind. I look around the neighborhood and see signs in many yards that advertised their home is protected by security systems. That’s all well and fine, however, they are not fail proof. We put new tires on our vehicles to protect us when driving down the road, however, there may be flaws and they are not fail proof. I’m sure some of you thought about safe sex when you saw the title, however, what ever the protection, it is not fail proof. We can put safeguards on our bank accounts and credit cards, however, those safeguards are not fail proof. We go to the doctor for checkups to make sure we are OK, however, no matter what he does or says, he can’t make our health fail proof. We have police on our streets and in our neighborhoods to keep us safe and protect us, however, they can’t guarantee our safety because they may not be there when you need them. We lock our doors on our homes, cars, and businesses to protect us and our belongings, however, a thief can nearly always break in and those locks aren’t fail safe. The list could go on and on, but I think you get the idea.
There is one protection that IS fail proof. God!! In Ephesians Chapter Six verses 10-20, it talks about putting on the full armor of God. Firemen, policemen, and soldiers put on armor to protect themselves, however that is not what Paul is talking about in this letter. He says, “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may stand against the wiles of evil.” Verse 14 tells us to gird your waist with truth (God’s Word-The Bible) and put on the breastplate of righteousness (doing as God commands to live the right life). These verses also tell us to always be prepared with the Gospel of Peace (God’s word). Above all take the shield of FAITH, so you can stop all the evil you will encounter. Take the “helmet” of salvation and the “sword” of the Spirit, which is the word of God; Pray always with prayer and supplication in the Spirit. Now be watchful to the end with all perseverance and steadfastness in the Word. The full armor of God: The Bible, Faith, and righteousness living.
God will protect you. He IS fail proof!!
