Several years ago while standing in my daddy’s kitchen, I heard the words, “To thine own self be true.” I felt immediately rush of the thought of being selfish and that I needed to focus on caring more for my dad and his condition. Again the voice spoke and said, “This has nothing to do with your love, care or sacrifice for your dad. It’s about being TRUTHFUL TO YOUR SELF.”
I remembered the words my boys and I would pray every morning when we would put on the armor of God.
Put on the belt of truth.
Paul discusses is the belt of truth. In Ephesians 6:14, he says, “Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist.” Of all of the pieces of the armor of God, you may be wondering why Paul started with the belt. However, the belt plays a much more important role than we may think.
The belt is where Roman soldiers stored their weapon – without a belt, they could not carry a weapon! So, why does Paul associate the belt of a soldier with truth? For Christians, God’s Word is truth, and it serves as our foundation.
Just as a belt is worn close to the body, we should hold God’s truth close to us and allow it to surround us. When we remain in His Word, we can distinguish what is true from what is untrue.Lauren Abraham
If there is a struggle, addiction or unhealthy relationship, be honest with yourself, and ask God to deliver you. His love, His power, His truth can set us free from all hindrances.
