Ephesians 6: 14-15 ” Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.”

The first piece of equipment the Roman soldier put on was his belt…and the first thing every morning,  we too need to be equipping ourselves with the truth from the Word of God. The only way we will ever be able to withstand the barrage of the enemy is with Truth.  The breastplate was then hooked onto the belt… covering the vital organs, especially the heart.  When we’re in right relationship, or right standing with God, our heart is protected from the flaming  darts of the enemy.  Finally, some historians credit the footwear of the Roman army as one of the greatest reasons why they were so victorious.  Their shoes had spikes in the soles enabling them to maintain tremendous stance and balance whatever the terrain.  When you know who you are in Christ and have that confidence…your “spiked soul ” enables you to stand firm and unmoved by the enemy threats and lies.
