[QTVOTD] The Helmet and Breastplate of my King!

“For [the Lord] put on righteousness as a breastplate or coat of mail, and salvation as a helmet upon His head; He put on garments of vengeance for clothing and was clad with zeal [and furious divine jealousy] as a cloak. According as their deeds deserve, so will He repay wrath to His adversaries, recompense to His enemies; on the foreign islands and coastlands He will make compensation.” Isaiah 59:17-18 ->me: I had never read about the breastplate of righteousness and helmet of salvation being first worn by Jesus our Messiah. In my written notes I wrote out all of the pieces of clothing (Breastplate of Righteousness, Helmet of Salvation, Shoes of Peace/Gospel, and Belt of Truth) as well as the Shield of Faith and the Sword of the Spirit/Word noted in Ephesians 6:14-17. It came to me that the Helmet and Breastplate we get from our Savior – Because we are IN Him we have access to these two pieces – we just need to put them on. The Belt of Truth and the Shoes of the Gospel must be put on daily to keep our clothes in order and our walk in the will and purposes of God. The Shield of Faith and Sword of the Spirit are drawn and wielded in the face of battle. I am still sitting here mesmerized by the fact that I get to wear the Helmet and Breastplate of my King…overwhelming.
