Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
We are called to put on the whole armor of God. Every day we find ourselves in a war zone. The enemy continually assaults our minds with lies and deceptions and the way that we stand against the enemy is putting on the full armor of God.
Those who put on the full armor of God are those who have an attitude of readiness. The understand the nature and reality of the enemy they face. We are not called to live in fear or be intimidated by the enemy. We are called to stand against the wiles of the enemy. We are called to be the mighty ones and overcomers. Because the honest truth is the enemy we face is defeated and we are the ones who have been given authority.
We are called to be strong in the Lord and His mighty power. When we take time to simply meditate and focus on the power of Almighty God it shows us that His power within us is without limit and because of this it doesn’t matter what we face. We will overcome anything we face because it will be the Holy Spirit within us that will empower and enable us to overcome. Let us understand the reality we live in every day and be the warriors and soldiers God has called us to be.
