1. Read Psalms 45:3 and Isaiah 59:17. Both passages describe God putting on spiritual armor. What two pieces of armor does God put on that are not included in our spiritual armor? (Isaiah 59:17)
2. David mentions spiritual armor as he recalls how God has helped him in battle. Study Psalms 18:29-50.
3. It is important that you have experience using your spiritual armor. In I Samuel 17 read about what happened when David tried to use armor with which he was not familiar.
4. The Lord uses spiritual armor to protect you from your enemies: Psalms 35:1-3 David had much to say about his enemies: Psalms 5:8; 6:10; 8:2; 9:3; 11:2; 15:5; 17:9; 18:3, 17, 20, 26, 34, 37; 27:2; 30:1 31:23; 44:5-6; 56:9; 60:12; 61:3; 95:6; 108:13.
Read what God says about your enemies: Exodus 15:6; Matthew 10:36; 13:39; Luke 1:11; 10:19; Acts 2:35; I Corinthians 15:25-26; Colossians 1:21.
5. God is your shield. See Genesis 15:1; Psalms 3:3; 5:12; 28:7; 33:20; 59:11; 84:9,11; 115:9-11; 119:114; 144:2.
6. Read Exodus 17. Israel was under attack and God told Moses to stretch forth his rod. Previously, Moses had used the rod as a shepherd’s staff and to provide water for God’s people. Now, for the first time, he stretches forth the rod to resist the principalities and powers of the hosts of wicked spirits responsible for the Amalekite attack. There is a great spiritual lesson in this story. The leaders of God’s people are not only responsible to shepherd, feed, and water the flock, but when an attack from the enemy comes it is their responsibility to use the “rod of God” to defend God’s people.
7. How do you respond to these fiery darts of Satan? Think about how you would use the shield of faith to defend yourself from each of these attacks. Record your answers to use them in the next attack:
8. Examine yourself: Is all your spiritual armor in place?
9. Study how the Lord is revealed as a shield in the book of Psalms:
• He is surrounding shield: Psalms 5:12
• He is a saving shield: Psalms 18:35
• He is a personal shield: Psalms 3:3
• He is a shield to those who trust in Him: Psalms 18:30
• His shield is a gift: Psalms 18:35
• He is a tested shield: Psalms 28:7
• He is a trusted shield: Psalms 144:2
• He is a victorious shield: Psalms 59:11
• He is a protecting shield: Psalms 84:11
• He is an anointed shield: Psalms 84:9
• He is a sheltering shield: Psalms 119:114
• He is a helping shield: Psalms 116:11
• His truth is our shield: Psalms 91:4

2. See the discussion on this subject in Chapter Ten.
3. Ephesians 6:13-17.
4. See the discussion on spiritual armor in Chapter Eleven.
