God's Armor for Us

Ephesians 6:10-20

Belt is used for truth.  Satan uses lies as his weapon.  Sometimes the lie is very close to the truth or even looks similar in ways but there is only one truth and that is Gods!!

Body armor is used for the righteousness.  Satan attacks our heart a lot of the time.  That is where he get us emotionally and that is an easy way to "break" us.  God protects us because he loves us and He sent His son to the world to die for us!

Shoes are given to us for peace.  Satan wants us to think that sharing the good news of Gods peace is a negative thing to do.  God wants us to keep putting on those shoes and showing the true peace that is available to each of us!

Shield is for our faith.  This shields us from set backs in life.  From the angry dagger of what Satan is throwing at us.  God can see the big picture and we need to trust that!!

Helmet is for the salvation God has given us.  The devil wants us to doubt what God has done for us. But with this helmet on it protects our minds from that temptation.

Sword is used as Gods words.  This is the only offense weapon God has given us.  There is times we need to stand up against Satan.  When we are in situation of temptation we need to trust that Gods words and the truth are going to be enough.

We need to armed as a body of Christ.  Fighting within the strength of the church--which this strength comes from the Holy Spirit.  We can not defeat Satan on our own we need God to defeat him.
