For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Ephesians 6:12,13
This is a hard verse to remember when we are having troubles. We really do have enemies when we are Christians. Not everyone is going to love us. In fact, many will hate us because they hated Christ first.
But we don’t just have physical enemies, we also have spiritual enemies.
Be reminded that your battle is one that is ‘out of this world’.
We need God’s help to fight and win! Take on yourselves that full armor: salvation, faith, truth, righteousness, God’s Word, prayer, and peace! All these things will more than just benefit us, they will give us what we need to combat spiritual wickedness!
Onward Christian soldiers, marching as to war, with the cross of Jesus going on before!!!
Victory belongs to You, Dear Lord! I thank You for Your power and strength, and for the armor we need to withstand in evil days! Amen!
