THE CREATIVE POWER OF FAITH
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Ephesians 6:17
The helmet of salvation guards the mind from the attacks of the enemy trying to get people to doubt, not only their salvation, but who they are in Christ. Many a believer has been put on the bench for believing he has somehow lost his salvation or never had it in the first place!
Remember, the enemy's weapons against us are fear, doubt and unbelief, used to defeat us and stop our forward motion! We overcome the devil by the blood of the Lamb (that washed away our sins) and the word of our testimony (that moment we repented and became born again) without which, we are still in our sin and lost without Christ!
So, when the devil comes to you, and he will, just as he did with Jesus, take the sword of the Spirit and say to Him, "It is written!" Resist him and he will flee! If you are born again, you have the mind of Christ guarded by the helmet of your salvation and the sword of the Spirit, God's word, in your heart!
Therefore, humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. I Peter 5:6-9
