MFM Daily Devotional 17 February 2023 MESSAGE

In continuation of yesterday’s discourse, we shall be looking into each piece of the whole armour and what is required of us as Christian soldiers.

Let us start from the head. No soldier goes to war without a cover on his head. An unguarded head can be hit by a stray bullet. Hence, soldiers wear a helmet to protect their heads from all attacks. The same goes for the Christian soldier, who wears the Helmet of Salvation (Ephesians 6:17a).

This indicates that the first thing that qualifies you, as a child of God, is your salvation in God through Christ Jesus. Without this divine helmet, you are not worthy to go for battle. Are you truly saved? Jesus is the Captain of Hosts who leads you into every battle and never leaves you unguarded, without Him, disaster is imminent.

We usually sing this song here in Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries: “When I go in the name of Jesus into any battle, I am a winner.” It is an undeniable fact that, having received your salvation through Christ, your head is under divine covering away from every satanic bullet or any kind of attack at all.

Another piece of the armour is the Breastplate of Righteousness (Ephesians 14b). The breastplate is usually positioned on the chest of the soldier. As said earlier, it will amount to foolishness if a soldier goes to war bare-breasted. There is need for a cover or what is called bullet proof jacket in today’s parlance.

What is our bullet proof jacket as Christian soldiers? It is standing on the righteousness of Christ. We do not have a righteousness of our own. The Bible considers every self-righteousness to be nothing but rags! To stand in this divine position, therefore, you must be a Christian that does not toy with sin, neither romance iniquity. Rather, you should stand firmly in Christ alone, blameless and justified by grace.

Beloved, are you worthy to wear these two pieces in readiness for spiritual battles? Can Jesus be confident of your right standing in Him? Is your salvation intact? Are you living a righteous life that the accuser of brethren, the prince of this world, cannot find anything in you if he comes searching? May you be so qualified, in the name of Jesus.
