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
Many view Christianity as weak but its quit the opposite, the power of God that rose Jesus Christ from the dead is the same power living in you. God has equipped us to stand against Satan thru the Armor of God
Satan is like a roaring Lion looking to devour you and your family, we need the Armor of God because there is power in the name of Jesus Christ. Demons tremble by the sound of his name, you are equipped and empowered to take a stand.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:12
When tragedy strikes us instead of turning to God we often try to fight or recover on our own. This is a big mistake, as alone we are powerless against evil, but with the Armor of God we are equipped to fight back against Satan and his demons.
But first we must acknowledge and recognize there is a spiritual world, a world full of angels and demons that is beyond our comprehension. But we are not alone, God will never leave us or forsake us.
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peaceEphesians 6:13-15
Equip yourself with the belt of truth in Gods word. You will not waver when you know the truth and the truth shall set you free. The breastplate of righteousness was giving to us by Jesus on the cross, only by his sacrifice, thru him we can stand against anyone. Stay alert and sober with your feet fitted with readiness, don’t let Satan catch you off guard, always be prepared.
In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Ephesians 6:16
For we walk by faith and not by sight, your faith will be tested, but if its strong will not waver and will be able to stand against Satans attacks. Faith is your shield, the stronger your faith the stronger your shield will be to protect you
Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Ephesians 6:17-18
Satan is the master at manipulation and mindgames, he’s going to get into your head and make you doubt your faith. But remember we have Salvation thru Jesus, when Satan reminds you of your past remind him of his future.
Finally the Word of God is like a double-edged sword, it cuts right to the heart of the wicked. Why are so many offended by the Bible, because its truth and evil doesn’t like truth.
God has equipped you with his Armor to stand against evil, learn it, live it, and use it because its your only defense against the wicked one in Jesus Name Amen
