Put on the Whole Armor of God

Put on the Whole Armor of God

One time in Sunday school, I heard some girls in my group arguing. Two girls were calling another girl a liar because she wouldn’t tell them the name of her teddy bear. The only response of the teddy bear’s owner was, “Jesus is in my heart.” It’s amazing to know that at a young age (5 years old), she already knows that her identity is not found in other people’s opinion of her but in the Lord. Even though the two girls called her a liar, she brushed it off because she knows who she is in Jesus.

There will always be people who will write us off because they don’t understand us, but if we know and believe what God says about us, our heart, mind and soul will be at peace. That is why reading the Word of God (the Bible) is important. If Satan knows the Word of God, we should know better. Satan is a destroyer (John 10:10). He likes to remind us of our previous sins, makes us doubt our worth in Jesus, shatters our confidence, and makes us lose hope. He hates God and therefore, hates God’s children, too. He continually accuses us through negative thoughts and people. He bombards us with lies until we become weak and can no longer worship God.

“For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down.” – Revelation 12:10

God’s truth is our shield. It is our protection.

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints…” Ephesians 6:11-18

“His truth shall be your shield and buckler.” Psalm 91:4
