To have victory in my CHRISTIAN WALK – I must “put on the full armor of God“. Once I put everything on it is God who works in and through me – EMPOWERING AND ENABLING me to “STAND FIRM” against “the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of EVIL in the heavenly realms.”
- God wants me to use EVERYTHING He has given me for standing firm … His Word … His righteousness and salvation … the shield of faith … the gospel of peace … prayer in the Spirit …
- He wants me to be alert and to pray for others – because there is real danger coming against us! The enemy is not just coming to hurt us but to destroy and devour us. (John10:10; 1 Peter 5:8; Ephesians 6:11)
But we don’t have to live in fear! We simply have to “put on the full armor of God” When we do this WE WILL STAND!
“The devil is vicious but he is not victorious!” (Lysa TerKerust – First 5)
