The Breastplate of Righteousness


The Roman solders use to put on breastplates made of Iron, copper or chain mail to protect their vital organs, predominately their heart and lungs. The same is true for us, the breastplate of righteousness protects our heart and soul from the fiery darts of the enemy. These fiery darts are thoughts and imaginations that produce bad feelings about yourself or others. Thoughts such as fear, shame, unworthiness, unforgiveness, rejection, bitterness, smoldering lies, accusations, temptations, and deceptive thoughts, just to name a few. The spirit of truth reveals the evil and deception to us and it’s our job to assure our heart is protected from this attack.

As kingdom kids we are reminded to stand firm and gird our waste with the belt of truth, and put on the breastplate of righteousness. Ephesians 6:11. Relax, it is not your righteousness your protecting your heart with, its Gods. He doesn’t expect us to protect ourselves with something we do not possess. We are all a work in progress. We will slowly transform into a new creation as we walk in his footsteps and are obedient to his teachings.
