      Ephesians 6:11  

      In the Bible’s Old Testament we read about a well-known Biblical
      character, David. He was just a young shepherd boy when he volunteered
      to fight an enemy, the giant Goliath. The King at that time was Saul,
      and he graciously offered David his armor for the fight. As David donned
      this heavy equipment, he realized he could not fight with the additional
      weight and bulk of Saul’s armor on his body.

      In the New Testament, Ephesians 6:11, God has given all His children a
      special set of armor to combat an enemy much more formidable than
      Goliath. The enemy is Satan, and the gift from God is a full set of
      armor, covering us from head to foot. We have his helmet of salvation,
      breastplate of righteousness, belt of truth, shoes of peace, the sword
      of the spirit (our offense) and the shield of faith (our defense).  

      This perfect set of armor is neither too heavy nor a hindrance as we
      engage in a spiritual battle with the enemy each and every day of our
      lives. As a matter of fact, it is our shield and protection, a perfect
      way to combat Satan. I am thankful for this gift from God, and so glad
      it is lightweight enough that I can put it on when first awakening,
      wearing and utilizing it all day long.

      Each set of armor was given by a king. King Saul, in the Old Testament,
      and King Jesus, in the New. The difference in the old and new armor is
      clear. King Sauls’ was unsuitable for David. The new is well-suited for
      the believer, and given to us by the King of Kings and Lord of Lords -
      Jesus Christ. Praise God!
