Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

Then Uzziah prepared for them, for the entire army, shields, spears, helmets, body armor, bows, and slings to cast stones. – 2 Chron 26:14

Uzziah would never send his army into battle without proper equipment. He got them helmets, armor, swords and shields: whatever they needed. Neither will God send you into battle without the armor you need! He will not call you to take territory in His name without proper protection.

You have the sword of the Spirit and the shield of faith. The helmet of salvation will guard your mind, and the breastplate of righteousness will protect your heart (Rom 6:14-17)! Whenever you face darkness, you can “put on the armor of light” (Rom 13:12). God has made you protected and prepared!

Spiritual warfare can be a misnomer if we think our victory is ever in question. You are not fighting for victory; you are fighting from victory! Jesus already won the battle. The King invites you to help Him against the enemy. The battle is His; and it is our privilege to help Him in the fight.


Father, thank You for protecting me! I know I have nothing to fear. No enemy can harm me, because the blood of Jesus gives me all the protection I need!
