KEY SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 6:13 “Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand”
Our key scripture instructs us that, if we would be victorious over the devil then we ought to put on the whole armour of God.
The Apostle starts with the first armour calling it truth: Ephesians. 6:14 “Stand therefore having your loins girt about with truth… “He describes truth as a belt that holds the whole armour in place. Truth is light. Truth makes the power of the enemy useless. Remember that the power of the enemy is darkness.
The enemy is eternally defeated. Hebrews 2:14 says “For as much as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is the devil.” This word ‘destroy’ means to be paralyzed or to be made ineffective
Again, wearing the belt of truth is to accept that the Bible is God’s word to us. Every promise has God’s full backing and that you fully rely on it. . Satan has used his age old deception to hold many captives, he tells people, “don’t trust your whole life on God’s word”. Please refuse that, as Moses did. Get to the word of God and approach every scripture with a very opened mind. God is the greatest unseen reality (truth) and your heart must be fully opened to whatever he says. Give no room to any suggestion that waters down the reliability of the word.
Know the truth about yourself. Take time to study all that the Bible says about God’s investment in you through the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. You are not just a piece of dust on the earth seeking to find how things would work out for you. You are God’s object of love and care, by giving up Jesus to die in your place. You are blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. You are the apple of God’s eye. Know the truth about who you are.
Accept these scriptural truths and keep speaking the truth to yourself always. You have got to be established in these present truth. Keep declaring the truth about Satan. Satan is a liar and eternally defeated. Confess the truth about our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Every knee and every name bows to Him. Finally confess the truth about yourself. In making these confessions, daily you put on this belt of truth.
God’s word is the truth. I submit my life to the truth always without holding back. I keep soaring high and high in Jesus name.
John 17:17. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
John 8:31-32 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
