The Lord has given us tremendous armour against the enemy.
It’s not armour like Saul’s, the one that David rejected for his battle with Goliath
(1 Samuel 17 v 38 and 39).
Our armour is not one that we wear on the outside of our bodies (2 Corinthians 10 v 4).
Paul uses the picture of a soldier’s armour to describe the defensive properties of knowledge.
It’s a protection that comes from within us.
As we grow more and more in knowledge, the more we will be able to stand and fight…and win!
A soldier’s armour gives him protection from his enemy’s weapons.
The knowledge and understanding that we have of Jesus’ finished work, and of all that we are in Him, will protect us and defend us from the lies and deceptions of the enemy.
Paul says to ‘put on’ and ‘take unto you’ the ‘whole armour of God’.
This is not physical armour – it is the armour of knowledge.
Speak this out today…’Thank you Lord for the power that I have, just by the knowledge of Your Word’.
Ephesians 6:11…..Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil
