As you stand in your given place in the army of the Lord you must have on the belt of truth (Ephesians 6:14) from which your sword hangs ready for battle. This belt of truth is the gospel of Jesus Christ which holds the armor together. Without the truth of Jesus no one can withstand the guile of the evil one (John 14:6). So you must study God’s Word, know the truth and be ready to send the evil one away.

As you stand you must be ever vigilant (Luke 21:19). Without your vigilance the evil one and the world can, and will, enter in and damage your testimony, make you doubt your path and stymie your gifts. As the battles surround you, you must be steadfast in your faith, keen in discernment and ready to dispel untruth.

Let’s be full of the truth and firm in our resolve to bring the Good News of the redemption of man. The truth that Jesus is the Son of God, that He lived as a man, died as a sacrifice for our sins and rose to be our high priest at the right hand of God the Father.
