Remember put on the armour of God daily. The girdle of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shoes of the gospel, shield of faith, helmet of salvation sword of the Spirit. The belt of truth must be part of our daily lives. It is things such as honesty, sincerity and openness. The truth also links up with the things we say what we preach we must practice. It is also important that we must believe the truth and therefore it is important to renew or cleanse our thoughts so it may be focused on the truthful thoughts of God . “Not living in the truth prevents us from living as active effective Christians in the will of God “*.
The second part of the armour is the breastplate of righteousness. This right is this refers to our own actions we do daily (like keeping the law). The breastplate of righteousness me to be pure or acceptable in the eyes of God*.
The third piece of the armour is the gospel of readiness (Shoes of the gospel).This means that we must be able to preach the gospel to others at any time. We must also be aware of things we can give to others through God. Four example by loving, helping and caring for His people.
The fourth piece of armour is the shield of faith. The way that you can put on the shield of faith but believe in God and protect you. It is also important to know that the stronger faith in God the more or the bigger the possibility is the satin and will try and attack you. You might come to a set on point where your faith is strong and no matter what happens you rebuke what satin tries to destroy in you life. Then Satan will try and attack the people around you and with that try to bring you down. Therefore stand firm in your faith and keep on believing in the Rock of your salvation.
Helmet of salvation protect our mind. It is the day when you accepted God as Lord and saviour of your life.
Spiritual warfare is not just being on the defence, but attacking as well. Therefore take up the sword of the spirit which is gods word and attack when told to. Pray when and act and wait until God speaks. It is also important to study scripture to strengthen your “sword” and be more effective. Stand your ground and listen to God when to attack.
“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.”
