The Breastplate of Righteousness
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. 14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness…
Ephesians 6:12-14 (ESV)
Bulletproof vests protect police officers in the line of duty. These vests can stop a bullet from penetrating the vital organs of the wearer. If hit, the officer can remain standing to overcome the assailant despite the bullet's harsh impact.
In a spiritual battle, your body armor is your true identity in Christ. The Word declares you are righteous through the blood of Jesus. If you are confident that you have right-standing with God, you can overcome the devil's threats and attacks. Any blow you take from Satan will not take you down. You will continue to stand using the power of God's Word to wrestle the devil under your feet!
Apostle Paul makes it clears that we wrestle with our adversary. The glory of God upon you makes you a heavyweight champion. If you know who you are and whose you are, the devil is no match for you. The anointing that abides within you will protect you. Keep your mindset on who you are in Christ. Stand against the devil, and he will flee from you to come again another day.
