Getting Dressed in Armor

Ephesians 6:10-18

Blessed Name, be strengthened by the Lord and by His strength. Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the schemes of the Devil.

For your battle, Blessed Name, is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, the authorities, the world powers of this darkness. In summary: against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.

This is why you, Blessed Name, must take up the full armor of God, so that you may be able to daily resist evil, and having been completely prepared: to take your stand!

Therefore Blessed Name, with the truth like a belt around your waist, with righteousness like armor on your chest, and with your feet sandaled with readiness for the gospel of peace.

Blessed Name, always take with you the shield of confidence, and with it you can block and extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Mainly though, take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is God’s word.

Lastly Blessed Name, always pray as led by the Spirit, and stay alert in this with faith, confidence and intercession for all God’s people.
