“Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand” (Ephesians 6:10-13).
It’s hard to imagine isn’t it? A spiritual war going on around us. Satan and his demons warring for our souls while God and his angels intervene on our behalf. I’d say it would be a little far-fetched if it weren’t for the warning in God’s word above. We are told to be prepared. Like any soldier getting ready for battle, we must take up arms in our daily fight against Satan and his desire to destroy us (1 Peter 5:8).
The “Belt of Truth.”
The “Breastplate of Righteousness.”
The “Shield of Faith.”
The “Helmet of Salvation.”
The “Sword of the Spirit.”
These are our weapons. God is our Commander. Victory is assured!
