All of the armor we wear is the Armor of God. It’s not ours, but we need to put it on. His helmet of Salvation covers our head. His righteousness covers our chest. His Faith delivered is our shield. All of our clothes are His clothes! We need to be clothed in His righteousness. Our shoes are His shoes – His gospel of Peace. Even the garment of praise we put on belongs to Him! Jesus alone is worthy of praise. We might be proud that we’re humble but all our righteousness is as filthy rags. He clothes the meek with humility.
If we only knew how much we need Him and how much His provision is for us. Let us apply His eye salve and see His great army surrounding us. Let us take His balm, His leaves for the healing of the nations. Let us not be clothed with our own leaves or garment as were Adam and Eve.
Maybe that’s why He said you don’t need two coats – because His clothing is all we need. There is no substitute or backup plan. Truly Jesus is all I need!
