“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil” (Ephesians 6:11 KJV)

The word “armour” as used in the scripture above is akin to the Greek word “panoplia”—a compound word for something prepared i.e. any apparatus like dress, implement or instrument designed for the purpose of defending oneself at war.

Thus, an armour is a protective covering made of metal and used by soldiers in combat or battle. It’s a defensive covering, which is meant to protect the user against offensive attacks of the enemy.

Our study on January 19 highlights the fact that God has given us all that we need to stand against whatever the devil throws at us.

The armour is our shield to extinguish all the fiery darts of the enemy. The good thing is that the armour of God, which we’re admonished to put on is both an offensive and a defensive weapon, thereby making you proactive in your walk of faith.
