So much of our agitation in this life is due to lack of contentment. Contentment is directly related to faith in God and trust that his specific providences in our lives are not only unavoidable because he is sovereign but also good because he is wise and loving. When life in the world unsettles us with fear and anxiety, we similarly fail to take seriously and apply personally that God is ruling over all, including evil men, and that he is working good through them for his people.

Few of us have engaged in hand-to-hand combat with deadly weapons, so we do not appreciate the importance of a breastplate. If someone is coming at you with a knife or sword, you will be very thankful for chest protection. It gives confidence to parry blows and take the fight to the enemy. If vital organs are unprotected, a soldier cannot feel secure in battle and will be in constant danger.
