Part 2

sword-sword-Bible

Bible armor for Children and Teens


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.

strong-man

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.

-

But is we follow Jesus closely....

we often have

VICTORY!


victory-in-Jesus

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.

God doesn't stop every bad thing from happening in our life.

But the Bible promises us that:


No matter what happens in our life,

God will help us handle it.

He will never leave us or forsake us.

Deuteronomy 31:6

Joshua 1:5

1 Chronicles 28:20

Isaiah 42:16

Hebrews 13:5

Resist the devil

and he will flee from you.

reading the Bible.

I will not tell lies.

For Teens

Below is a

Prayer for Putting on the Armor

I hope you will put your armor on today!


God of Creation - Mighty and True,

I come before you to thank you for giving me your strong armor.

I praise You for the power and authority you give me to use for your purposes.

Helmet

Today I put on the Helmet of Salvation. Thank you, Lord, for saving me from hell and providing a heavenly home for me.

Lord, You designed my helmet to protect my thoughts. I will cooperate with You this day. I will allow godly thoughts to flow through my mind this day, and I will reject ungodly thoughts.


Shoes

Thank you for my Shoes of Peace.

When I allow godly peace to guide me, I feel so good inside.

I put on my Shoes of Peace. They cushion each step that I take. These shoes help to reduce the friction and irritation that can naturally come as I live in this ungodly world.


Breastplate

I put on the Breastplate of Righteousness.

I want to be right with You.

Lord, I invite You to speak to me about any sin that I need to confess and ask forgiveness for.  I want to feel totally comfortable with You.

Thank you for your wholehearted forgiveness toward me.  And thank you for this breastplate that covers my heart - which is the very inner part of me.

Wearing this breastplate reminds me that You want ME to guard my heart. You want my heart to be tender and protected from impurity. I will make decisions that will protect my heart from sinful things.

Belt

I put on the Belt of Truth.

Today I renew my dedication to Your truth.

I will live within the boundaries of Your truth. I want to follow you more closely each day. I will tighten my belt so that I can feel it restraining me and protecting me from sin.


Shield

I pick up my Shield of Faith.

I will recognize doubt darts, and I will quickly respond.

I declare that every doubt dart that is fired at me will be met with faith and trust in You, Lord, and in Your Word.


Sword

Thank You for the Sword of the Spirit.

I pick up the Sword of the Spirit, and I give voice to the Word of God. I will become more and more comfortable speaking out Scriptures. 

I will remind myself that when I speak out Your Scriptures, Your power is unleashed.

Now I am dressed and ready to live a life of dedication
to You, Lord,
in my words and in my actions.

AMEN!

Sign Language Presentation




Next,

we have some information

about our spiritual enemies.



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 busy
working to influence world leaders.

Satan tells the demons to tempt us.

And since Satan is their leader,

we sometimes say things like,

"The Devil is tempting me."

~

We encourage you to read our page called:

Who is the devil?

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.

Beth
