In Ephesians 6:10, Paul said, “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.” The only way to do this is by putting on the whole armor of God, which includes:
The belt of truth
The breastplate of righteousness
The gospel of peace
The shield of faith
The helmet of salvation
The sword of the spirit
All the above relates to the written, spoken, and manifested word of God. When we know the truth of the word, we are girding up our loins with the belt of truth. As we live and walk in His truth, we are living and walking in the gospel of peace. The word is our weapon against the enemy; It is our sword of the spirit. Believing God’s word, without doubt, makes it our shield of faith. The shield, the breastplate of righteousness, and the helmet of salvation protect the heart and mind against the enemy’s fiery darts. This was given to believers, for us to stand firm against the enemy.
