So Ephesians 6 teaches us in verse 14 to put on the belt of truth.
1-Truth is what holds everything together. When people lie they are a sitting comedy show as they wait from someone or something to expose them. Truth sets you free and truth is GOD and His word. Regardless of what so called experts claim to know don’t let people lie to you about the relevance of GODS word. Nothing is relevant until it passes the test of the word. We must therefore according to Ephesians 6 put on the belt of truth. YOU put it on. Its not a miracle its a decision. That’s why there are so many that claim to be Christians but lie like hell because they haven’t put on the truth. Pastors who share non existent miracles thinking that they are helping GOD look good.
2-Next put on the breastplate or bulletproof vest of righteousness or right standing. If you are standing good with GOD He stands with you. Righteousness is what we receive at salvation and something we must then maintain or else we lose it.
3-Next is the shoes of the gospel of peace. If you find that the church you go to causes you to be in conflict with family members then you need to rethink. Let them fight you but never fight them because you must wear the shoes of the gospel of peace. These keep you prepared and ready to share GODS nature with others like Christ who when reviled did not revile when attacked did not respond in the same way back.
I pray for you today, you shall not fail, you shall not live in frustration and you shall not be ashamed. Your belt of truth will hold things together your breastplate will protect your vitals organs and your shoes of the gospel of peace will keep your walk protected receive the armour in faith and by your obedience to do GODS word in Jesus name, somebody shout “I’m getting dressed”
4-Ephesians 6:16 Above all, take the shield of faith, with which you shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. The 4th piece of armour is your shield that stops fiery darts of sickness and disease, poverty, delays, witchcraft etc. Your faith is what separates you from the herd. Faith is seeing what others cannot see, faith is sensing what others cannot sense, faith is receiving what others cannot receive because faith is way beyond the senses and many cannot access it. Faith hears the word and immediately receives what the word of GOD says about you. I don’t know what circumstances have connived against you but I’m here to tell you that the devil is a liar and GODS word is true. Your faith will see you through, you will arise off the death bed, you will walk down that wedding isle you will gt that dream job and wife and you will succeed in what you set out to do shout fire somebody.
5- Ephesians 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation. This is the 5th piece of armour that you need to be covered. The helmet will protect your mind, your will your emotions against the onslaught of the enemy. You need to always think on the salvation of GOD. GOD is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all you can think of or imagine. This is the thing you need to protect the most. You can’t think wrong and talk right and whatever you say will determine what your life will be like. So put on the helmet. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, Matthew 12v32 by his words a man is either justified or condemned. YES WORDS ARE IMPORTANT BECAUSE WHEN YOU TALK WRONG YOU WILL LIVE WRONG BECAUSE YOU THOUGHT WRONG.
I pray for you today that, Romans 12v1-2, you will be transformed by the renewing of your mind. May you live in GODS abundance may you start today to get ready and prepare yourself for the greatness that GOD has ordained for you in this season. YOUR LIFE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN RECEIVE IT IN JESUS NAME.
6- Ephesians 6:17 and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. The 6th piece of armour to cover you completely today is the sword of the spirit. The first is the word which must be converted to truth in your spirit and hold up things together and the 6th is the word which must now be used as an offensive weapon against the powers of darkness. By His stripes you were healed, No weapon formed against you shall prosper and every tongue raised against you shall be condemned in Jesus name. Zech 1v17 for through prosperity shall the cities of GOD be spread so you need to prosper in order to fulfill your destiny. Psalms 23 Goodness and mercy are following you every morning you leave home hence favour is your portion and you always know that something good is going to happen to you.
7- Ephesians 6:18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching to this very thing with all perseverance and supplication for all saints. 7th is prayer. To leave home any day without having spent time in the word and meditated on it and prayer is to leave home without your trousers. I DON’T MISS PRAYER both personal and corporate in church. Fasting is a very important part of my existence and i fast at least 120 days a year if i don’t take on more days. Besides being good for my health (which is not why i fast) this is a humbling experience for me that helps keep me in check. Because of this i have learnt to deal with those who rise up against me pastors and sinners alike and i never respond to them. Prayer is the place i reserve for private intimacy with the creator but i’m praying the whole day and even in my sleep. Prayer will give you power today, i pray that you will make a decision to become the best GOD has ordained for you.
YOU ARE GODS IMAGE AND WERE NEVER MEANT TO PORTRAY ANYTHING LESS THAN THAT. You are the apple of GODS eyes, don’t allow the eyes to get infected with sin, YOU ARE WONDERFULLY AND FEARFULLY MADE. I pray for you today that before the end of the month of April you will have known a new level of walk with GOD. Power is on your side Miracles are on your side and Grace is overtaking you, shout “Jesus is still Lord”
