PROPER DRESSING FOR WAR: COAT-3
1Samuel 17:38 “And Saul armed David with his armour, and he put an helmet of brass upon his head; also he armed him with a coat of mail.”
1Samuel 17:39 “And David girded his sword upon his armour, and he assayed to go for he had not proved it. And David said unto Saul, I cannot go with these; for I have not proved them. And David put them off him.”
No matter the religious activity, deep down within there will always be a feeling of guilt.
All our religious activities amount to nothing when you need to confront the devil. The only righteousness that matters is that of Christ.
2Corinthians 5:21 “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”
Jesus Christ is our righteousness, he alone qualifies us to stand boldly before the Father. When you wear Christ as your garment, you command and attract the attention of the Father.
Saul’s coat of mail also comes in different forms. Some wear it in form of human connections, money, secret societies and ungodly unions. Those are things people wear and build their confidence on, but like the garment of Saul they’ll fail woefully.
Since the coat protects our heart let’s borrow a wisdom from Solomon:
Proverbs 4:23 “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.”
You need to safeguard your heart using the breastplate of righteousness. You must stand guard and make sure every information going into your heart passes through the filter of the word of God, which is Christ.
Make Christ your standard in your decision making. Any information that is not verifiable by the word must be dropped.
David quickly put off Saul’s coat of mail which represents arm of the flesh. Whatever is against kingdom practice must be dropped and put off.
Whatever is not built on the word of God must be put off, that was the wisdom of David.
