armor of God  Put it on

There is so much out there these days on spiritual warfare and what all it entails.  Lots of practices and methods for dealing with the devil and his sneaky, evil, ways.  But let us not get side tracked from what God’s Word clearly tells us in regards to resisting the devil and dealing with him.

Paul spells it out plainly in Ephesians 6:10-18 when he says:

10 A final word:  Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.  11 Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. 12 For we are not fighting against flesh and blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.  13 Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so that you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.  14 Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness.  15 For shoes put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.  16 In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil.  17 Put on salvation as your helmet and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.  18 Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere. 

We need to do as Paul said in Ephesians and put on all of God’s armor, pray, pray, and pray some more, and keep our minds focused on Jesus and what He’s already done for us, which is win the battle.   We have no need in concentrating on the newest fad in spiritual warfare.  The important thing is to concentrate on doing what God’s Word says and keep our minds solidly on Him in order to resist Satan and all of his tricks and games.  God is with us when we are with Him.  He’ll never let us down.

Now, let’s do this!  Praise God!   🙂
