Full armor of God
Full armor of God
You can not defeat a supernatural enemy in the flesh, you must fight or defend yourself supernaturally. How do you do that? You do that by realizing who you are in Christ AND understanding Who is the power behind the authority you have been given as a believer. Because you believe in Jesus and His finished work on the cross, you are now a child of the Most High God! Glory be to God! You must learn the word of God by reading the Bible. By doing so, when situations arise in life you can speak God's word over them and have all of heaven backing you up! You won't believe the lies the enemy is trying to force on you because you will know the truth of God. You will no longer come into agreement with him when he tries to make you feel you are broken, defeated, not healthy, that you will always lack financial stability or that nothing will ever get better. Once you understand the power of God's word over the enemy and the power in the name of Jesus, you will have the devil and his weapons he is trying to form against you, out of your life. (Isaiah 54:17) Start praying prayers of thanks and gratitude for the blessings you do have. Even if they seem so small, think of anything and everything you can and thank God for, and praise then Him.
(1 Thessalonians 5:18)
Ephesians 6: 10-18
Finally, be strong in the Lord, relying on his mighty strength. Put on the whole armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the Devil’s strategies. For our struggle is not against human opponents, but against rulers, authorities, cosmic powers in the darkness around us, and evil spiritual forces in the heavenly realm. For this reason, take up the whole armor of God so that you may be able to take a stand whenever evil comes. And when you have done everything you could, you will be able to stand firm.
Stand firm, therefore, having fastened the belt of truth around your waist, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and being firm-footed in the gospel of peace. In addition to having clothed yourselves with these things, having taken up the shield of faith, with which you will be able to put out all the flaming arrows of the evil one, also take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray in the Spirit at all times with every kind of prayer and request. Likewise, be alert with your most diligent efforts and pray for all the saints.
Ephesians 6:16 - Shield of faith -Faith is being sure that God will keep His promises. Faith in God protects you when you are tempted to doubt.
Ephesians 6:17 - Helmet of salvation - Put on the helmet of salvation by believing that Jesus Christ died for your sins and rose again.
Ephesians 6:14 - The breastplate of righteousness - righteousness is being honest, good, humble, and fair to others. It means acting in accordance with Divine law.
Ephesians 6:14 - The belt of truth - truth keeps us from giving into the world's beliefs. Compare your beliefs and actions to the truth of the Word of God.
Ephesians 6:17 - The sword of the Spirit - The sword is the Word of God. God's Word is our offensive weapon. When we tell others what the Bible says, the Holy Spirit helps people see their bad thoughts and actions, and makes them want to be forgiven.
Ephesians 6:15 - Feet shod with the preparation of the Gospel of Peace - The Gospel of Peace is being right with God and being contented in troubled times. Having peace with God. In ancient times they wore special sandals that allowed the warriors to advance against the enemy with agile and sure step, the is to render to you spiritual warriors to march briskly and firmly against the Satanic powers.
JESUS IS LORD!
