A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere. (Ephesians 6:10-18 NLT)
Hello, family. We have covered the armor of God a few times. But God has led me back to it. We are going to be here for the next few days, going through the armor of God piece by piece. Each piece is required, we cannot go into battle unprepared! So grab your favorite beverage and let’s dig in.
The belt of truth! Why not the belt of righteousness or faith? If something is not true, it has no validity, there is no foundation for it. The belt keeps the other pieces of the armor together it also held the sheath for the sword. We can even apply it in today’s terms. If I walked up to you and removed your belt your clothing would begin to come undone. Why? Because I removed the foundation that holds your clothes together. God’s word is true, we can stake our life on it (if you don’t you are not a follower of Christ). God cannot be proven false! “God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through?” (Numbers 23:19 NLT)
The belt of truth! Put it on knowing it will not fail you in times of battle. You will not be undone by the attacks of the enemy! When someone comes to you with some twisted doctrine you can shoot it down because you have been girded up with the truth!
Much Love & God Bless
