The 91st day – The full armour of God

Put on the full armour of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. — Ephesians 6:11

In today’s verse, Paul has revealed two important things. First of all, we have a battle to fight that is not against the physical powers but spiritual forces of evil.

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.   — Ephesians 6:12

Secondly, we are not fighting the battle on our own but God has given us the mighty power of the Holy Spirit and  equipped us with spiritual armours.

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. — Ephesians 6:13-17

What are the items of spiritual armour according to above verses?

1. The breastplate of Righteousness
2. The belt of truth
3. The Shoes of Gospel
4. The helmet of salvation
5. The shield of faith 
6. The sword of the Spirit.

With these resources we become part of the Father’s army alongside Jesus. We will overcome the world of evil with the power of love!

    I’d just been praying about this exact thing before I read your blog this morning. I’d been wondering about what it meant to wear the belt of truth, and that diagram links it to obedience of God’s teachings. Brilliant! Thanks again.
