How to use God’s protection plan for daily living
Put on your spiritual armor!

For the purpose of being fully prepared and empowered to stand against (to withstand) the enemy’s attack in the day of evil – or when things are at their worst.

V 14a
Stand firm then…

We are to be fearless against the enemy’s assaults as he seeks to deceive, accuse, and discourage us.

vv. 14b-15
14 …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.
the belt of truth buckled around your waist

My Declaration: Jesus is my truth

God’s Promise:
John 14:6 NIV
…I am the way and the truth and the life. ….
With the breastplate of righteousness in place

My Declaration: Jesus you are my righteousness

God’s Promise:
2 Corinthians 5:21 NIV
God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
3. The Gospel of Peace
and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.

My Declaration: Jesus you are my readiness

God’s Promise:
Philippians 4:13 NIV
I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
Ephesians 6:16-17 NIV
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.

When does the enemy attack us?
Ÿ When we’re tired
Ÿ When we’re growing spiritually
Ÿ When God is preparing us for a great work for His glory.
4. Faith
take up the shield of faith

My Declaration: Jesus you are my faith

God’s Promise:
Galatians 2:20 NIV
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
5. Salvation
Take the helmet of salvation

Romans 12:2 NIV
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

My Declaration: Jesus, you are my salvation. I am saved, I am being saved, and I will be saved.

Pastor Samuel Rodriguez:
Saved from the past,
Delivered from the present,
And headed for the future.
In Christ you are unstoppable.

God's Promise:
Hebrews 5:9
and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him
6.The Word of God
and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God

My Declaration: Jesus, you are my Living Word

God’s Promise:
Hebrews 4:12 NIV
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
