How to Put On the Armor of God Everyday

Life presents a constant array of challenges, often from unexpected sources. Some days are brighter and more optimistic than others, while others feel like you’ve woken up on the battlefield. For most people, the daily grind of work, family, and personal obligations can weigh heavily and burden the soul. Even more so for believers because every day is a battle that requires spiritual awareness, strength, and armor. 

The Bible tells us that the battle is not against flesh and blood but against the rulers, authorities, and powers of darkness in the heavenly realms. But God, in his infinite wisdom, has provided us with everything we need to prevail over the enemy. In this post, we’ll examine the armor of God in detail and learn how to put it on every day.

The first element of the armor of God is the Belt of Truth. To put it on, recognize that everything God has said and promised in His Word is the Truth. Build your life on His Word in every situation because it is the foundation of understanding. It prevents the enemy from deceiving and confusing you. 

The second element is the Breastplate of Righteousness. By accepting Christ as your Savior, you have become righteous in the eyes of God. Put on the Breastplate of Righteousness by daily confessing your sins and keeping your heart pure. Living a righteous life will guard and protect your heart from temptations.

The third element is shoes fitted with the Gospel of Peace. Daily study and meditate on the gospel of Christ, keeping your feet steady on the promises of His Word. This will help you remain calm and peaceful amid difficult situations, enabling you to share the gospel message and give hope to others.

The fourth element is the Helmet of Salvation. To put it on, remember your salvation experience, confess Christ as your Lord and Savior, and keep your faith in Him. This will guide and protect your mind from the enemy’s lies and temptations that seek to question your faith and salvation.

The fifth element is the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. To wield it, you must regularly read and memorize scripture, allowing the Holy Spirit to use it for your benefit and for others. Use it to fight against temptations and lies and to help others who might be struggling.

The sixth and final element is the Shield of Faith. Daily exercise and build your faith in God, trust His Word and promises, and pray without ceasing. The shield of faith will deflect the enemy’s fiery darts and protect you from harm.

As a Christian, daily life is a spiritual battle. Recognizing the enemy’s tactics and the armor of God is essential for victory. Applying them to your life will help you be equipped and prepared for whatever the enemy throws. So put on the armor of God and remain standing firm in the faith.
