“And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God;” (Ephesians 6:17)
Get your head covered, it’s cold outside. How many remember your parents saying that to you? Well it is the same here. We need to get our heads covered. The enemy is always looking to get negative thoughts into our mind. He wants to bring doubt and unbelief. He knows that if he can get us to doubt God’s Word he can continually defeat us.
In this verse it tells us to take the “helmet of salvation”. Our salvation is the most powerful of all gifts that God has given to us. We are saved because of what Jesus did on the cross. (Don’t worry, our salvation can not be taken from us once we have accepted Jesus Christ as our Savior, however satan will do everything he can to cause to doubt and beleive that we are worthless.) When Jesus’ disciples came back from preaching the Gospel they were all excited because of all the miracles that they had witnessed, yet Jesus gets them right on track again. Look here at (Luke 10:20) “Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.”
Salvation is a gift from God and it comes to us by believing that Jesus died on the cross for our sins. Salvation does not come through works or being good, it is freely given to anyone that will receive it. (Ephesians 2:8-9) “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.”
As you get spiritually dressed today, look to Jesus, and thank Him for this great salvation that He has given to you. Thank Him that you are heaven bound and that you will never go to hell because of all that He did on the cross. As you do this, remember the work of Calvary and His resurrection and let the helmet of salvation get on your head and protect you from the thought bombs of the enemy. When they do come, cast them down in Jesus’ name and receive the victory through Him.
Heavenly Father, We praise You for your sacrifice on the cross so that I can be saved. Your sacrifice did not just save me, but all of mankind if they will only would beleive in you. I believe it with all of my heart and mind. Today, I put on the helmet of salvation and I cast down every thought and make it obey the Word of God. You are a wonderful and loving God and I love you with all of my heart. In your precious name, Amen
If you have not ever asked Jesus into you heart,; please consider how close we are to His return. Don’t miss out on all of His blessings, but also His guidance and protection. It was the greatest decision I every made. I could not ever imagine my life without Him.
