“Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist…“Ephesians 6:13-14a
Today we are dealing with a piece of the full armor of God which is the belt of truth.
It is fitting that the belt of truth is the first piece of the whole armor of God. Because Jesus is “the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6), and it is only through Him that we can get to God. Therefore, truth is of the utmost importance in the life of a Christian. Without truth, the rest of the armor would be of no use to us. The belt of truth holds the believers life in place.
Beloved, today the Apostle Paul admonishes us to stand on our grounds putting on the belt of truth which is also the Word of God.
The belt of truth is a crucial piece of defensive armor guarding our inmost being in the battle against the lies and deceptions of the enemy. Without an understanding of truth, we are left vulnerable to being “carried about by every wind of doctrine, the trickery of men, the craftiness in deceitful scheming” (Ephesians 4:14).
The belt of truth protects us and prepares us for the battle that is part of every Christian’s life.
Do you know that the Word of God has the power to “…thoroughly furnish you unto all good works.”
Maybe you think you’ve exhausted the pages of the word of God so that’s it? No, there is even more you are yet to see, if you’d go deeper, and it will seem as though you’ve never even looked at those scriptures before.
Brethren the truth is, if the Holy Spirit is to open the eyes of your understanding, you’d receive fresh insight on scriptures your familiar with that will leave you baffled.
So in effect the truth(The Word of God) will set you free and renew your mind causing you to break agreement with the world’s way of thinking and take you from defeat into victory.
Do you want to walk in faith? Then get in God’s Word and stay there. Give it the most important place in your life! Only the Word of God produces consistent, increasing faith and that’s a mighty weapon, with that victory is a surety. Shalom!
