When we wear the Breastplate of Righteousness we are putting on the Righteousness of Christ, so when God looks upon us He sees His Son who died to cover our sins, past, present and future.
The Breastplate protects us from the accusations of the enemy, for when he starts bringing up our past sins, we can stand firm in the righteousness of Christ and say “I have been forgiven. I am covered with the righteousness of Christ. You have no legal right to accuse me of my past. God has forgiven me because Christ paid for my sins on the cross where he defeated sin and death.”
As we stand firm in the Armor and declare the truth, the enemy must flee. Therefore, wear the Armor to protect yourself and to stand firm against the wiles of the devil and the wicked ones.
Prayer: Thank You God for sending Your Son to set me free from sin and death, so that I can be righteous in Your sight and be able to stand firm against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:12 KJV.) I pray that You will remind me daily to wear the Armor. Amen.
Today: Thank God for each piece of Armor that He has provided and look for ways you can serve Him today.
Blessings to you as you walk and stand in the Righteousness of Christ today.
