OUR WEAPONS OF WAR
Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness. Ephesians 6:14
One of the definitions of gird is to invest with power and authority and the truth of God's word reveals to us that we have all power in Jesus name and all authority over our enemies! As Jesus is in the world so are we, being His body!
The breastplate of righteousness guards our heart from the attacks of the enemy trying to convince us that we are only poor sinners saved by grace and not new creations in Christ endowed with power and made the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus! We are sinners, yes, saved by grace, definitely, but we are washed in the Savior's blood and made righteous by the finished works of Calvary! Praise God!
Remember the armor of God only covers the front, so never turn your back on the enemy who will take swift action against you, stand and look him straight on and defeat him with the power and authority of the Most High!
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6,7
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
