Preparing your Armor


“Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 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.

…And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all of the Lord’s people.”  Ephesians 6:11-18

  • The belt of TRUTH

  • The breastplate of RIGHTEOUSNESS

  • Shoes of REDINESS (from the gospel of PEACE)

  • Shield of FAITH

  • Helmet of SALVATION

  • Sword of the SPIRIT (the Word of God)

  • PRAY!!! (for ourselves and others)

These are the things which we should hold dear and close to our hearts.  When we walk in these ways, our paths will be made straight and our feet will be sure upon the pavement. Steady your steps by preparing your heart in the ways of the Lord.

Soli Deo Gloria!
