Put On The Whole Armor of God

Put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil (Ephesians 6:11, KJV).

In our spiritual journey, life often resembles a battlefield, demanding resilience and preparedness. This devotional explores the profound instruction from Ephesians 6:11, encouraging us to equip ourselves with the full armor of God and delving into its significance and practical applications for our daily lives.

The term “whole armor,” from the Greek “panoplia,” refers to a complete set of protective gear. As described in Ephesians 6:12-18, this armor includes the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the gospel of peace as footwear, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. These elements metaphorically represent different aspects of our Christian character and conduct. They are symbolic tools, reflecting mindset, virtues, and ways of living. For example, the shield of faith represents our trust and reliance on God’s Word, guarding us against spiritual assaults.

The directive to “put on” the armor is a figurative call from God, urging us to embrace a mindset and behavior reflective of these virtues. Consider the shield of faith: to embrace it means actively choosing to believe and live according to God’s teachings, particularly in challenging times.

Understanding the metaphorical nature of each armor piece is key. These metaphors guide us toward the traits and actions they signify, promoting a comprehensive adoption of godly virtues.

Therefore, let us strive to wear the entire armor of God, not just parts of it!


Reflect on the verse mentioned above, reciting it aloud to deeply comprehend its meaning and allow its wisdom to permeate your being.

Apply the Word

Evaluate your spiritual preparedness in various life aspects, such as family, finances, ministry, and health. Are you fully armored with God’s protection in each area? Commit to God’s call to spiritually arm yourself for the challenges you encounter.


Ask for the Lord’s guidance to wholly embrace and exemplify the qualities represented by His armor, equipping you for the spiritual battles you may face.
