Our Supernatural Protection 1: The Belt of Truth (i365 Day 36)

Weightlifters wear belts in practice and competition. A weightlifting belt is a tool to increase intra-abdominal pressure and to aid a weightlifter in stabilizing the spine during lifts. Ancient soldiers wore loose-fitting clothing. When approaching a battle, they needed to gather their loose garments together by using leather belts. Also, a belt provided an attachment for the sword. As Christians, we should put on the supernatural belt that Paul talks about. Let’s ponder his words carefully.
Ponder: 14Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness (Ephesians 6:14 ESV)
Post: “Lord God, what do You mean by the belt of truth?”
Practice: Most probably, to belt on truth means to be strengthened by God’s truth in the gospel and to resolve to live truth; thus, we should resolute to live out Bible truths in our daily living.
Proclaim: Find an opportunity that you can share your new experience with any nonbeliever.
