The Belt of Truth is the first piece of armor listed in Ephesians 6:10-14. It begins with the admonition from the Apostle Paul to “be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his mighty power.” This is the key to understanding the armor of God. All the pieces of the armor belong to God and come from Him. Also, all are gifts to God’s people. All are designed to help us “stand against the schemes of the devil.” The Belt of Truth is the first listed because, without truth, we are lost and the schemes of the devil will surely overpower us.
