Each different job requires different equipment. Computer repair involves using hand tools, software, books, etc. A few things police duty requires are: duty belt, flashlight, gun, handcuffs, radio, pen, and a ticket book. Military personel need their gun, boots, BDUs (Battle Dress Uniforms), canteen, hazardous material protective suit, and other supplies.

The main things a Christian soldier needs are:
14 ...the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,
15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Those are the essentials to have in Spiritual Warfare.

There are some other things that aren't as essential for living a Christian life, but that may make it a little easier.

1. Prayer journal. When you pray about something, write it down. When it happens, check it off. When you get discouraged, and think God doesn't listen, look through your prayer journal.

2. A notebook. Have you ever been thinking about the Word, and had an idea come to you? Write it down, you may not remember it later... Now, I haven't read where you will "burn eternally" if you don't write a thought down, but what if someone else does? Just a thought...

3. Pen or pencil and a highlighter. To write with, and highlight things that stand out to you.

4. Tape recorder with batteries and blank tapes. This is for "writing down" your ideas when you can't write on paper.

5. Bible dictionary. For looking up words that you don't understand, to have a timeline of when different events happened, and to easily locate different people in the Bible. A history book sometimes helps, also, because it may have information about different customs of the time period.

6. A quiet place. Somewhere away from distractions, where you can hear the "still, soft voice".

7. Water/coffee/soda...

8. Sometimes a good worship CD or tape. What is the difference between a praise CD and a worship CD? When you worship God, do you praise His name? By praising God, do you worship Him?
