Ephesians 6:10-11 New International Version
“… 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.”
There is no doubt that if you are trying to do that which is Godly and right in this life the enemy of your soul will come against you. If you are doing nothing for the Kingdom of God then you are no threat to the devil, but if you ARE, then be forewarned; you are a threat to the forces of evil and will be tried and tested. I believe quite literally in what we read in the beginning of the Book of Job. Satan must come before God and request permission to come against believers. If it were not so then how could God be all-powerful? There would be something out of His control. I don’t believe that to be true. God provides for us armor, as it were, to ward off such attacks from the devil. We are able to stand tall in the face of any attack if we use those weapons that are readily at our disposal.
In the coming days I will be looking at each piece of armor that God provides for us as believers. Suffice it to know at this time that if we trust in and rely on God as our provider and sustainer in this life, we shall not fall and can withstand ANY attack from the enemy. Trust in God for all things and you will never be disappointed or turned aside. You may count on that for the scriptures declare it to be so. Until next time, walk with the King and be a blessing!
