God desires to protect us from anyone or anything that dares to harm us while we live on Earth. God is willing to use every resource available to provide protection to those that truly trust in Him. Remember, God is all-powerful, all-knowing (I John 3:20), and everywhere present (Psalms 139:7-8), God alone is capable of being our greatest protector.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).
God has promised us complete salvation and total protection from the enemy. We must trust in God to receive Godís protection throughout our life time. In other words, there is no one or nothing that we should be afraid of. After all, God has given His Only Begotten Son for us, protecting us by providing everlasting life for all eternity.
Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation (Ephesians 6:14-17).
Here's some ways the armor of God protects us against the enemy:
1. The belt of truth renews our minds in Scripture which is Godís truth.
2. The breastplate of righteousness shields us from sin.
3. The shoes of the gospel of peace lead us to share Christ.
4. The shield of faith protects us with Godís promises.
5. The helmet of salvation gives us confidence in Christ.
The enemy of our souls has certain tactics that he uses to knock us down in our spiritual battle. But God knows exactly what tactics the enemy uses and gives us the right pieces of armor we need to be good soldiers of Jesus Christ.
