JESUS DID BATTLE WITH SATAN, HE SAID, "IT IS WRITTEN..."HIS WEAPON WAS
HIS FATHER'S WORD." FOR THE
WORD OF GOD IS QUICK, AND POWERFUL,
AND SHARPER THAN ANY TWO-EDGED SWORD, PIERCING EVEN TO THE DIVIDING ASUNDER OF
SOUL AND SPIRIT, AND OF THE JOINTS AND MARROW, AND IS A DISCERNER OF THE
THOUGHTS AND INTENTS OF THE HEART.
GOD HAS PROVIDED ARMOR FOR OUR PROTECTION. WILL YOU CHOOSE TO
Below are the instructions on the armor and how to put it on
10 In conclusion, be strong in
the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from
Him [that strength which His boundless might provides].
11 Put on
God's whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies],
that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and
the deceits of the devil.
12 For we are
not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents],
but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits
who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces
of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.
put on God's complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your
ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands],
to stand [firmly in your place].
therefore [hold your ground], having tightened the belt of truth around your
loins and having put on the breastplate of integrity and of moral rectitude
and right standing with God,
15 And having
shod your feet in preparation [to face the enemy with the firm-footed
stability, the promptness, and the readiness produced by the good news] of the
Gospel of peace.
16 Lift up
over all the [covering] shield of saving faith, upon which you can quench all
the flaming missiles of the wicked [one].
17 And take
the helmet of salvation and the sword that the Spirit wields, which is the
Word of God.
18 Pray at
all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner
of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose
and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God's consecrated
FAITH, I'M PUTTING ON THE Belt OF TRUTH. I AFFIRM TODAY, FATHER, THE TRUTH OF
WHO I AM: I AM A CHILD OF god; I
AM A SAINT; I AM INDWELT BY THE holy SPIRIT.
YOU'RE MY GOD; CHRIST IS MY LIFE; THE HOLY SPIRIT
IS MY HELPER AND HE IS MY GUIDE TODAY. I KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT WHO I AM.
I CHOOSE TO SPEAK THE TRUTH TODAY. I CHOOSE TO WALK IN THE TRUTH AND BECAUSE I
AM WHO I AM, SIN HAS NO PART IN MY LIFE. I PUT ON THE Belt OF TRUTH. I WILL
SPEAK THE TRUTH; I WILL THINK THE TRUTH; I WILL WALK IN THE TRUTH TODAY. I
KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT WHO I AM, LORD, AND WHO YOU ARE."
JESUS' NAME, I PUT ON THE
BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS TO PROTECT MY EMOTIONS TODAY, MY HEART. FATHER,
PROTECT ME FROM RESPONDING TO SITUATIONS AND CIRCUMSTANCES EMOTIONALLY
WITHOUT, FIRST OF ALL, THINKING AND REMEMBERING THE TRUTH OF WHO I AM, WHO YOU
ARE, WHAT FITS IN MY LIFE AND WHAT DOES NOT FIT. SO I WANT TO THANK YOU,
FATHER, AS I PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS TODAY TO PROTECT ME
SANDALS OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE
I WANT TO THANK YOU
THAT AS I PUT ON THE SANDALS OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE, LORD,
TODAY WHEREVER YOU LEAD
ME, I WANT TO BE A PEACEMAKER THROUGH THE GOSPEL. TO
THOSE WHO HAVE NEVER TRUSTED JESUS
CHRIST, I WANT YOU TO USE ME TO HELP THEM TO MAKE PEACE WITH GOD.
WHEREVER YOU SEND ME TODAY, LORD, AND THERE IS
CONFLICT, LET MY PRESENCE THERE BE A SOURCE Of PEACE AND A CAUSE FOR PEACE. THANK
YOU, FATHER, AS I PUT ON MY SANDALS AND I TIE THEM TODAY THAT MY LIFE
IS GOING TO MEAN PEACE. IT'S GOING TO BRING PEACE WHEREVER I GO, BECAUSE I'M
GOING CARRYING FORTH THE GOSPEL OF JESUS
IN JESUS' NAME, I PICK
UP THE SHIELD OF FAITH THAT BY PLACING MY TRUST IN YOU TODAY, LORD,
I'M TRUSTING YOU TO PROTECT ME MENTALLY (MY
HEAD), EMOTIONALLY (MY HEART), AND PHYSICALLY (MY TOTAL
BEING). I'M WALKING UNDER YOUR
DIVINE PROTECTION THAT WHEN SATAN
SHOOTS ALL OF HIS FIERY ARROWS, HIS MISSILES OF TEMPTATION AT ME, I'M
UNDER YOUR DIVINE PROTECTION. I TAKE MY POSITION BEHIND THE SHIELD OF FAITH
FOR YOUR PROTECTION OF ME TODAY. LORD,
I'M TRUSTING YOU TO PROTECT ME."
"FATHER, TODAY, IN JESUS' NAME, I PUT ON THE HELMET OF
SALVATION TO PROTECT MY MIND. FATHER,
PROTECT AND GUIDE MY THINKING. LORD, IF YOU
SEE SATAN SENDING
SOMETHING MY WAY THAT I SHOULD NOT THINK, I WANT TO JUST CLAIM BY FAITH THAT
THE HELMET OF SALVATION WILL PROTECT MY THINKING. FATHER,
BY FAITH, I PLACE OVER MY MIND TODAY THE HELMET OF SALVATION TO
PROTECT MY THINKING SO THAT I THINK THE WAY YOU THINK."
SWORD OF THE SPIRIT
TAKE UP THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT. NOW THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT IS THAT SHARP,
TWO-EDGED WEAPON. LORD, I TAKE IT UP TODAY, IN JESUS' NAME, TO PROTECT ME AND TO
FIGHT OFFENSIVELY, SHARING THE GOSPEL, THE WORD OF GOD."
