Ephesians 6:13 is a promise we can all claim. “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.” God promises that wearing His armor will enable us to stand firmly against Satan’s attacks. His armor provides us with what we need for this fight when combined with the Holy Spirit’s indwelling power. God’s armor includes truth, righteousness, the gospel of peace, faith, salvation , the Word of God and prayer. That is a treasure trove of pieces God provides for our fight.
Here are some Lessons and Truths from this verse:
- God’s armor protects me in both physical and spiritual battles.
- God’s armor fully covers me.
- God desire me to stand firm in my faith.
- Our world contains evil that desires to defeat and destroy my faith.
- God wants me to do my best and then remain standing in Him.
- God is more powerful than Satan.
Because Christ died on the cross and rose from the dead, I can be filled with His Holy Spirit and protected by His armor to face the challenges of each day. May you be emboldened today as you step out in faith, knowing and trusting God to have you protected through His armor. Put it on and step out!
