The Seven Spiritual Armors (Poem)

While in bondage, the Apostle Paul did write,
For the Creator above gave him great wisdom and sight.

God’s people are to be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might,
The battle in the spiritual realm, Paul did teach us how to fight.

For we wrestle not against flesh in blood, on this earth, whom we should love,
But principalities, powers, rules of darkness, and spiritual wickedness from above.

So put on the whole armor of God so that you can stand,
This will protect you against the wiles of Satan’s hand.

First, put on the Belt of Truth without haste,
Make sure it is wrapped tightly around your waist.

The Breastplate of Righteousness must cover your chest,
In purity we can fight against the devil without rest.

Next, shod your feed, and with the gospel and be ready to move fast,
For time is running short, and the opportunity won’t forever last.

Bravely take up the Shield of Faith to quench the darts of Satan and make him run.
This is most important; For I will trust in the unseen, Father, Holy Spirit, and Son.

With the Helmet of Salvation must I cover my head,
So I can have the mind of Christ, for which He bled.

Arm yourself with the Sword of the Spirit, also known as the Word of our Lord,
For this weapon brings forth Truth and is sharper than any two-edged sword.

Last of all, our Prayers are a powerful tool,
Casting our cares to God above who does rule.

So the seven spiritual armors we must always wear,
Never take them off, and never will you have to fear.

2 Cor 10:4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds.

Are you wearing the full armor of God? Which armor do you need the most help with?
