Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—
Ephesians 6:10-18 NKJV
Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.”
Luke 10:19-20 NKJV
Amen and Amen!
The Apostle Paul said this in Ephesians 6:12
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
Notice that word “wrestle”…
It’s important because wrestling is the only form of combat that you never take your hands off of your enemy!
I don’t know about you, but over the last few weeks, the spiritual attacks have been UNRELENTING!
At times, seemingly coming from all directions, and at times simultaneously.
It has flat worn me out. I truthfully feel weakened but I know God will sustain me.
As I talk to my Christian friends, many of them are experiencing the same.
Family matters, financial issues, health, depression…I’m just being honest.
It truly is a time to dive into Ephesians 6 and daily equip ourselves with the “Armor of God”!
