Bible armor for Children and Teens


Monday


God gives us a cool spiritual

sword

to help us grow more like Jesus.


God tells us that the Bible is our sword.


We use our sword

by speaking out verses in the Bible.

- - -

For example,

if you feel fear, you can say,

"The Lord hasn't given me the spirit of fear

but of

power, love, and a sound mind.

2 Timothy 1:7

-

Saying a verse once doesn't
normally make a lot of difference.


God expects us to say verses

over and over

as we confront

problems.


By saying verses over and over,

we become changed people.

-

We become more like Jesus!


So by saying the "Fear" verse over and over,

we begin to find that we feel less fearful

and more courageous.


God wants us to feel safe.

The devil wants us to feel afraid.


One of the most important things

that Bible verses do

is

CHANGE US.


Many young Christians and adult Christians

look exactly like nonChristians

because they have no CHANGE in their life.


They have no victory over anything.


We

ALL

NEED

to use our SWORD

often!


God's sword CHANGES us

And

God's sword CHANGES our life!



Let's get excited about

the

Word of God.

Wednesday


God gives us

The Helmet of Salvation.


Putting on

the Helmet of Salvation

protects my mind.



Let's make a commitment
to think
God's thoughts and
resist the bad thoughts of the devil.

-

Submit to God
Resist the devil
and he will flee from you.

James 4:7

-

Thinking like God

makes me a strong Christian.

-

I learn to think like God by

reading the Bible.


Our Helmet of Salvation

protects us.

It also represents our commitment

to following Jesus.


I have decided to

Follow Jesus!

Our shoes speak of many things
that are important.


For Example:


Being ready to go where God directs

Standing firm with God

Living in peace with God

Following Jesus closely

and

Taking the Good News of Jesus to our friends

Our Bible Shoes help us

to move

fast 

away from evil ideas and evil forces.




Bad thoughts are like arrows

that try to keep us

from living

the way God wants us to live.

Would you say this with me?


I have my Armor Shoes

and I walk with

Jesus!



Friday


                             God tells us to put on

                                The Belt of Truth

Truth is found in the Bible.


Please say with me:

I will live like the Bible teaches me to live.

I will speak truth.

I will not tell lies.



Saturday


God tells us to put on

The Breastplate of Righteousness

~ ~ ~


The Breastplate of Righteousness
protects our heart.

When we put on the Breastplate,

God helps us to learn to protect our heart from bad things.

Some of those bad things are

meanness, selfishness, hard heartedness, and unforgiveness.

For Pre-Teens



The Devil is Satan.

Satan is a fallen angel.

He can only be at one location at a time.

He is busy directing the demons that follow him and
working to influence world leaders.

Satan tells the demons to tempt us.

But since Satan is their leader,
we sometimes say things like,
"The Devil is giving me bad thoughts."


Take Note


Almost every day in my personal devotions,
I physically do the movements to put on
the full armor of God.

I act like the pieces are visible and material.
As I put on each piece,
I say words that show my respect for God and words that will ignite my determination to follow God.

The reason I choose to do this so often is because this activity always gives me a great blessing.
