Put on the Armor of God

I'm going to do a series over the next couple days about putting on the armor of God.

First as an intro though, check this out. There's an artist, Christensen I think, who paints this. He paints a template of a youth looking into the mirror and seeing their true self: a child of God, eternal and strong, and led by Christ. They are missionaries, putting on the armor of God by the little actions they do each day.

If you send in your photo to the person, he will paint your face into it and send it to you! Wouldn't that be amazing! (Future gift idea ;) check it out at

The world is so full of trouble, and Satan lies in wait behind every corner. He is ready for any weakness, and will do anything to set elect sons and daughters of God down the wrong path. Every day is so important. Put on the armor of God every day, for it will protect you and fortify you in everything you do. You will be so strong, and the winds and storms of life will have no power over you.  You will be able to do everything with Heavenly Father on your side.

11. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. (New Testament, Ephesians 6)

15 Wherefore, lift up your hearts and rejoice, and gird up your loins, and take upon you my whole armor, that ye may be able to withstand the evil day, having done all, that ye may be able to stand.
16 Stand, therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, having on the breastplate of righteousness, and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace, which I have sent mine angels to commit unto you;
17 Taking the shield of faith wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked;
18 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of my Spirit, which I will pour out upon you, and my word which I reveal unto you, and be agreed as touching all things whatsoever ye ask of me, and be faithful until I come, and ye shall be caught up, that where I am ye shall be also. Amen. (Doctrine and Covenants, Doctrine and Covenants, D&C 27)

Where Christ is, there shall we be also. I want to be with Christ. ;)


  1. I really want one of these paintings now. :) When my Dad goes to work in the army, in his uniform he always carries a little 'armor of God' token/coin thingy in his pocket with him.

    1. I know I totally want one of them! A bunch of YW/ym groups send in photos and have an activity where they surprise all the kids with their personal painting. I wish mine could do that, but then it wouldn't be a surprise.

      I didn't know your dad was in the army! That is so cool that he literally puts on the armor of God on to protect him. Love it!
