The Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.

12 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.

13 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.

14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 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 the Lord’s people.

  •  By taking my focus of God and put it on worldly things like money, power, worldly friends, unspiritual family members, …
  • That old girlfriends that you tried to get back all of a sudden miraculously want to spend time with you and invite you to a party.
  • You might ask yourself if you are really saved getting baptized, life does not feel different because you expected fireworks and euphoria. 
  • The Belt of Truth – If I know the truth satan cannot mislead me with lies. I need to read my Bible consistently and pray that God will give me the strength to change the things to become more Godly. What are some false doctrines you used to believe before your study the Bible?  (See at the bottom of the study for a list)
  • Breastplate of Righteousness – We should have a pride in following Jesus and His example of being in a right relationship with God. Fight to be a noble knight of God who He can be proud of. 
  • Readiness Feet – Readiness is like playing rugby and you have the ball to fend off all the guys who wants to attack you. I think to be ready every day we focus ourselves on God by having great Bible Study and Prayer with confessing our sin. I think confessing your sin is like washing your armor and getting sticthed up where you got hurt during the battle. 
  • Shield of Faith – It extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. I think your faith is like an attitude of victory. It is like Mark Twain said: “It is not the size of the dog in the fight, it is the size of the fight in the dog.” Don’t let satan try to intimidate you with lies and half truths, fight back with your shield. But a shield can also be used as a weapon as seen in this video with Maximus fighting against the Barbarian.
  • Helmet of Salvation – A helmet protects your head. All satans attacks takes place in our brain so watch your thoughts like it says a bit further down. “We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” – 2 Cor 10:5
  • The Sword of the Spirit –  How sharp is your knowledge of the word of God. Can you fight with it effectively? Is your sword sharp or blunt, you can decide!
  •  We fight satan with God’s word. 

Prayer:

  • Morning Lord.
  • We truly need to be warriors to follow you.
  • Thank you for giving us our spiritual weapons to be able to fight off satan.
  • God help me not to be deceived by satan but study my bible.
  • Thank you that I can be strong in You Lord and Your mighty power. 
  • :Thank you God that I can overcome satan like Jesus did through prayer.
  • I pray Lord that I might always put on the full armor of God.
  • Amen
