Stand Firm Against the Devil

Do you ever feel the pressure of Satan's schemes? We don't have to acquiesce to his manipulations. #spiritualbattle #GodsArmor #Ephesians6 Share on X

Dear Readers,

Do you ever feel the pressures of Satan’s schemes? Can you smell the lingering stench of his nasty breath in certain experiences you encounter? It’s real. He’s real. The evil one works to “steal, and kill, and destroy” (John 10:10), but we don’t have to acquiesce to his manipulations.

God has provided His armor for our protection.

Ephesians 6 contains wisdom and instruction about how to stand firm against the devil. When we wear the full armor of God on a daily basis, we’ll achieve victory over the enemy. Praise the mighty name of JESUS! This message encourages and inspires us to get dressed God’s way so we can stand.

Verses to remember:

“Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, that you may be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:10-12, NASB).
