The helmet of salvation

helmet
Put on the Whole Armour of God

The Christian's spiritual armour is set forth in Ephesians 6:10-18. 
There are seven pieces of armour: (1) Loins girt about with truth, (2) The 
breastplate of righteousness, (3) Feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of 
peace, (4) The shield of faith, (5) The helmet of salvation, (6) The sword of the 
Spirit which is the word of God, and (7) Praying in the Spirit. Pay special attention 
to the "helmet of salvation" for the guarding of your thought life. Most demons 
seeking to re-enter assail the thoughts. Become watchful of any thoughts that 
could be considered negative; they are from the enemy. Separate their thoughts 
from your own. Refuse the thoughts they give you and replace them with positive 
spiritual thoughts.  Resist the devil at the first sign of his attack.

Philippians 4:8  Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things 
are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever 
things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and 
if there be any praise, think on (say) these things.

Confess Positively

Negative confessions characterize demonic influence. Positive confession is faith 
expressed. Confess what God's Word says. Any other confession will open the door 
for the enemy.  

Mark 11:23  For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall SAY unto this mountain, 
Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, 
but shall believe that those things which he SAITH shall come to pass; he shall 
have whatsoever he SAITH.

For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister. And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end: That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly (fully) pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.

Proverbs 15:3

The eyes of the LORD are in every place,

Beholding the evil and the good.

Psalm 139:7-12

Whither shall I go from thy spirit?

Or whither shall I flee from thy presence?

If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there:

If I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.

If I take the wings of the morning,

And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;

Even there shall thy hand lead me,

And thy right hand shall hold me.

If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me;

Even the night shall be light about me.

Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee;

But the night shineth as the day:

The darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

Seek ye the LORD

While he may be found,

Call ye upon him

While he is near:

And all that is within me, bless his holy name.

Who healeth all thy diseases;

Who redeemeth thy life from destruction;

Who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things;

So that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Matthew 6:10

Thy kingdom come.

Thy will be done in earth,

As it is in heaven.
