Put on the full armor of God
The Bible tells us we are in a war, and our adversary, Satan the devil, is bent on destroying us. The apostle Paul warns us to beware of Satan’s devices and tactics 2 Corinthians2:11 said us "in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes. How can we defend ourselves from his stealthy and deadly attacks?
Paul addressed this in Ephesians' today passages where he talks about putting on the whole armor of God. Ephesians was one of Paul’s letters written from prison. During Paul’s time in prison he obviously became well acquainted with the armor worn and carried by his captors in the Roman army. Paul drew a powerful comparison between a soldier’s armor and the spiritual armor of God.
Paul said(verse 10): “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might”
You see, we don’t have to be discouraged by Satan’s devices or by his power and stealth. We aren’t in this battle alone. We have access to the greatest power in the universe!
Verse 11 continues: “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
This is a comprehensive defense strategy, and we have to pay attention to all parts of this armor God offers. But if we do, we will be able to withstand Satan’s attacks.
You can do it with God!
