14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
God will not leave us alone or unarmed in this spiritual fight. God the Holy Spirit is always with us so we are never alone, and through Him, Jesus and the Father are with us also. As for the spiritual weapons, the belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness, gospel of peace, helmet of salvation, and sword of the Spirit all are from Him. And while this spiritual battle is waging, we Christian solders are not left without our commander God giving us orders, training, encouragement and strength through His Holy Spirit. Please always remember that it’s God’s will that we will endure to the end and win this war.
In Jesus’ love and service
