Armour Of God
I was reading about the armour of God in Ephesians 6 and noticing how pertinent it was to our current situation. Eph 6:13 in the NLT says to “put on every piece of God’s armour so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil”. This is definitely a time of evil right now.
We are told to put on the helmet of salvation; that is really important because it covers the mind which is where the devil attacks with his fear filled lies. Salvation affects not only our spirits but also our minds. Isaiah 54:5 says, “the chastisement of our peace was upon Him”. Jesus was punished so we could have peace of mind.
We are also told to use the shield of faith; this is of course very important for the battle we find ourselves in right now. If you feel like you need more faith then meditate on the miracles of Jesus or any of the other faith scriptures.
The final piece of armour I want to mention is our offensive weapon, the sword of the spirit which is the word. Speak the word in the face of satan’s lies and it will build you up and at the same time you will be aggressively defeating the devil (James 4:7).
