A battle wages in the supernatural, but we have protection. Covered in the full armor of God, we are outfitted for victory.
Belt of Truth – A belt holds everything else in place. Jesus said I am the way, the truth and the life. Jesus IS the truth! You are in a relationship of love and trust with Jesus, wrap that around your waist and fasten securely.
Breastplate of Righteousness – God took our sins and placed them on Jesus. He took his righteousness and gave it to us. We have right standing with God. We cannot earn it and we certainly don’t deserve it. Righteousness is a gift. Protect your heart by understanding your new identity in Christ.
Gospel of Peace Shoes – Wherever you walk, bring with you the good news of great joy, peace on earth and good will toward man. Be prepared to share God’s love. Be open to sharing your redemption story. Walk boldly.
Shield of Faith – Faith is the confident assurance that reaches beyond our five senses. It doesn’t need to know how or understand when. Faith never stops believing and will protect you on every side.
Helmet of Salvation – Our thoughts lead to feelings and feelings determine actions. If you want to think right, feel right and ultimately act right, you have to protect your mind. Let the salvation experience transform the way you think. You are worthy of great love and sacrifice!
Sword of the Spirit – The Word of God is your weapon. It is alive and powerful. There is a promise in the Bible for whatever battle you may face.
Affirmation: I will put on the full armor of God
Comments: We want to hear from you: Which piece of armor are you most familiar with? Which piece will you put on this week?
Ephesians 6:13-17 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
