Ephesians 6:10-12 – Finally, be strong in the Lord and the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against spiritual forces of evil in heavenly places.
Our strength can not be on our own, it has to come from the Lord. We are in Spiritual battle against the evil one and power of darkness. In order to be a combatant in the spiritual battle we must arm ourselves in the whole armor of God. We must walk by faith in the truth of the Word with prayer in the Spirit.
I have to realize I am powerless and can do nothing on my own. My strength and encouragement is from the power of the Spirit within me. Our battles that we are facing in our world today are played out on a cultural and political stage but they are spiritual battles at the core. The battle for life and the entire moral revolution targeting youth is 180 degrees from God’s natural created order and thereby spiritual. I
must remember God is sovereign and allowing this but I have to stand firm in faith putting on the whole armor of God to ward of the powerful of darkness. We have to be in the Word as our sword and be in vigilant prayer to fight the deception of the enemy.
Thank you for sending Jesus so I can repent be reconciled receive the Spirit to give me strength, prayer to engage in battles against the evil one. Through this let me draw near to you and all I do be to glorify you.
