Armor of God

Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.
Ephesians 6:14-18a, emphasis mine

Belt of Truth: When Satan hits you low, you have to know the Truth (what God's Word says) about who you are. Study up!

Breastplate of Righteousness: Cover your heart with Christ's righteousness because nothing can take that away.

Shoes of Peace: Be quick to spread peace. Don't be contentious or complaining. Instead, walk in love and grace.

Shield of Faith: When doubts about your mission or God's goodness creep up, acknowledge them, bring them before the Lord, and hold up your faith for the enemy to see. As Hebrews 11:1 says, "Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen." Even when you think you're fighting in the dark, you can recall all of the times God proved His faithfulness to you and others.

Helmet of Salvation: Satan can't take away your salvation, so protect your head with that assurance (1 John 5:11-13).

Sword of the Spirit: Like I mentioned in a previous post, your most powerful weapon is the Word of God. Soak your mind and heart in the Word and allow the Spirit to bring it to mind during temptation and conflict.
