(Put On The Whole Armour Of God)
TO THE BIBLE – Ephesians 6:12-13 CEV
“We are not fighting against humans. We are fighting against forces and authorities and against rulers of darkness and powers in the spiritual world. So put on all the armor that God gives. Then when that evil day comes, you will be able to defend yourself. And when the battle is over, you will still be standing firm.”
Man in himself isn’t as wicked as you see, for God made man in His image and in His likeness. He made man to look like Him and to function like Him (Genesis 1:26); but there’s something that remotely controls the man who’s not born of God, and causes him to think, talk, and act wickedly (Ephesians 2:2).
Thank God, that’s not the case with us His children! We aren’t left hamstrung or defenseless against the attacks of the enemy. When pressures from these wicked spirits come at you, be unruffled! As long as you’re fully-clothed with the full armour of God, you’ll be able to resist and extinguish the cruel and fiendish onslaught from the evil one, and remain standing in the evil day.
Satan and his demons are no threat for the Christian. You have the dominion and authority over principalities, powers, the rulers of the darkness of this world, and spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. God has given you the spiritual weapons with which to keep them at bay (Read Ephesians 6:13-19).
Act on the Word. Get on the offensive against the enemy by keeping the whole armour of God on you all the time, not some of the time. Stand firm and be unshakable, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, the breastplate of righteousness in place, and your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the Gospel of peace. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And pray in the Spirit on all occasion with all kinds of prayers and requests. Hallelujah!
I’m fully equipped and fortified with the whole armour of God, strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. My faith is a weapon of defence against the fiery darts of the wicked, and an instrument of victory over and against the adversary and adversities. I’m eternally triumphant in Christ.
