Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.Ephesians 6:10-11 NIV
A spiritual war is raging, and there’s no neutral ground.
Make no mistake. The devil is a defeated foe. But for now, he still has (limited) power to deceive and destroy.
Followers of Jesus are called and equipped to fight on the winning side, shining his light in the darkness and taking back what Satan has stolen.
We’re living in a pivotal time. Many are looking for hope and truth in the wrong places. The social pressure is crushing. The fear is palatable.
God is calling his people (yes, you) to stand firm, seek his heart, and speak his word.
To avoid becoming a casualty of war, we must remember our armor (see Ephesians 6:10-18).
God graciously provides all we need to stand in victory against the enemy’s schemes:
- Belt of Truth
- Breastplate of Righteousness
- Shoes of Peace
- Shield of Faith
- Helmet of Salvation
- Sword of the Spirit
I encourage you to read the entire passage and pray through each piece today … and every day.
It’s up to you and me to actively apply our supernatural resources so we can operate in God’s strength and power. It’s his will that you release his kingdom on earth, as it is in heaven (see Matthew 6:10).
