Stand firm then…with the breastplate of righteousness in place.
The belt of truth shows our commitment to the battle, but it is the breastplate of righteousness that provides our covering. For a Roman soldier, the breastplate protected the heart and vital organs. Soldiers carried a shield, but during the heat of a battle, the breastplate would provide protection from unexpected and overwhelming assault. In Satan’s schemes, we never know when he will attempt to manipulate our thoughts or emotions. It is imperative for followers to strive to be right with God so they can stay covered in righteousness.
Pray to stand firm with the covering of righteousness.
