Liar Protection Gear
Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
Ephesians 6:11-13 (NIV)
God gives us never-fail liar protection gear. But we must put it on. We 'put it on' with our mouths.

Therefore, I encourage actors, models, and talent for Christ to memorize the lines below. Speak them every morning. They are the liar protection gear given to you by the Father of lights. They prevent the father of lies from harming you in the midst of the crooked and perverse generation in which we live.

Your script is the Healer's pre-script-ion, which is God's Script-ure:

'As a child of the Most High God, I speak to all spiritual powers in the universe. It is written in Ephesians 6:14-17: 'Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.' '

Make it personal: 'This day I put the armor of God over me and my house. I put on the belt of truth. It goes where I go. I walk in truth. Nothing can penetrate it. I put on the breastplate of righteousness. It is the Blood of Jesus. He makes me righteous. By it, God protects and purifies my heart. I put on the footgear of peace. I seek peace and pursue it. I forgive my enemies. I hold up the shield of faith, which is my belief upon the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior, Redeemer, and Protector. Attacks from every enemy bounce off this holy shield. Nothing harms me, because He said so. I put on the helmet of salvation. It protects my ears and my mind. Lies and evil cannot penetrate it. In truth, I have the Mind of Christ. He gives it to me, and my thoughts are enlightened. Finally, I speak with the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. By It, I order all enemies to flee from my presence.'

Add your own petition. Example: 'Father God, I ask you to fulfill these holy words and apply them to me and my house. Because as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Through the power of the Blood of the Lamb and in the Name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Thank you Father God for your Word, for your mercy, and for your Son, Jesus. Amen.'

"I labored, yet not I. By the grace of God, I am what I am, and do what I do' (paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 15:10). I love God's Word. As a late-in-life committed Christian with no Bible training prior to age 51, some people wonder how I'm qualified to write devotions. I wonder that, too. But God loves children and fools for Him. I am both. Ghost Writer? God.
