The Spiritual Blessings – 28
Put on all the armour that God supplies. The belt of truth. The breastplate of righteousness. The shoes of peace. The shield of faith. The helmet of salvation. The sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. He cannot stand having us quote the Bible at him.
Put on all the armour that God supplies. In this way you can take a stand against the devil’s strategies.
For me this is one of the greatest spiritual blessings of Ephesians. The spiritual armour is given to us for our protection when we are fighting spiritual battles. And that is more or less 24/7 at this time in history.
Following today’s verse, Paul goes through the armour of a roman soldier of his time. He mentions first the belt of truth. Unless we are grounded in the truth of the gospel, then we will fight our battles in vain. The only truth that will overcome the devil is the fact the Jesus is the Son of the Most High God who died for the sins of the world. He rose again and now lives in Heaven with His Father until the end of the world as we know it.
The breastplate of righteousness covers the heart which must be fully committed to Jesus.
The shoes of peace are to enable us to walk in peace with all men and to carry His peace wherever we go.
The shield of faith protects us from anything the enemy will throw at us.
The helmet of salvation keeps our thoughts in line with Biblical principles.
The sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God is the thing the enemy hates. He cannot stand having us quote the Bible at him, because he knows the destiny it prophecies for him.
Read slowly through the whole of Ephesians 6 today and be blessed and encouraged as you use the armour God has given for your protection.
