THE BLOOD AGAINST WICKEDNESS
As believers, we are constantly in battle with the evil forces of the world. There are so many wicked things in the world and we need to wage war against them. We cannot fight with carnal weapons, but with the dull armor of God. The devil is strong, but God is stronger. We know that no weapons formed against us shall prosper. We know that the battle is not ours, but the Lord’s. If we allow the Lord to fight our battle, we will always come out victorious. Never allow people to overturn you. Never allow the enemy to use the enemy’s weapons. We have all we need to fight wickedness. Ephesians 6:12 is our scriptural reference today.
“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, the humble servant of the Lord, calls the people to fight the good fight knowing that the spiritual host of wickedness is in heavenly places. Paul knows that flesh and blood cannot deal with wickedness. Paul is aware that we need to bear the full armor of God. In chapter six, Paul advises us how to wage war against wickedness, outlining the weapons that God has given to us. He writes that we cannot put on half the armor, but the full armor of God. Stand with your loins girded to truth, the breastplate of righteousness, and your feet shod with the gospel of peace. Whenever you engage in war with the wickedness of this world, ensure that you are fully prepared and armed. God will give you the victory when you put your faith and trust in Him.
