The Belt of Truth
By David Chadwick
Your spiritual war is not against flesh and blood, but the wiles of the enemy (Ephesians 6:10-20).
But you are not defenseless against the devil. Jesus’s followers possess the full armor of God. Each part of the armor can be utilized against the devil.
The first piece of the armor is the belt of truth. Truth, by its very definition, is exclusive. It means something is true and other things are lies.
The evil one is the father of lies (John 8:44). Every lie finds its origin in him.
The devil constantly lies to you. He tries to convince you that something other than God can meet your deepest longings. You try it repeatedly. Suddenly, you become an addict.
Every other piece of the full armor of God is attached to the belt of truth. If you don’t begin with truth, you’ll never defeat the enemy. And Jesus said God’s Word is true (John 17:17).
To discover truth, you must measure all the world’s teachings against God’s Word.
Jesus said that if you abide in him and he in you, you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free (John 8:31-32).
Always seek God’s truth in his Word. It helps defeat the enemy’s lies.
And you will be set free to live as God intended.
