The Armor of God

It is important that we put on the whole armor of God.  There is a war going on, with spiritual wickedness on every hand; we cannot be victorious without the armor of God.  As the people of God, we are also called to be strong in the Lord, recognizing that the flesh is weak.  If we are not careful, we will succumb to the will of the devil.  We should never get to the point where we think we are out of the reach of Satan’s hands.  Satan is clever and will come disguised in many forms.  We should never be so haughty and proud that we think we will not submit to Satan.  The sin of pride can take us into places that are not of God. In Ephesians 6:11, we find these words:

“Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.”

God is strong and He wants us to be strong. It is God’s armor that protects us.  Therefore, we should take everything the Master has set out for us and put it to use in order to be able to stand up to anything that the Devil throws our way.  In verse 12 the Word says, “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.”  Paul goes on to list the various pieces of armor  of protection in verses 14-17.  It is my prayer today that we are all fully armed with the armor of God.
