“Finally, receive your power from the Lord and from his mighty strength. Put on all the armor that God supplies. In this way you can take a stand against the devil’s strategies. This is not a wrestling match against a human opponent. We are wrestling with rulers, authorities, the powers who govern this world of darkness, and spiritual forces that control evil in the heavenly world. For this reason, take up all the armor that God supplies. Then you will be able to take a stand during these evil days. Once you have overcome all obstacles, you will be able to stand your ground. So then, take your stand! Fasten truth around your waist like a belt. Put on God’s approval as your breastplate. Put on your shoes so that you are ready to spread the Good News that gives peace. In addition to all these, take the Christian faith as your shield. With it you can put out all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Also take salvation as your helmet and God’s word as the sword that the Spirit supplies.” Ephesians 6:10-17 (emphasis mine)
You have power!
You have strength!
Not of your own but from God.
But you have a choice to make.
Choose to put on ALL the armor that HE supplies.
Choose today to abide in Him daily, “I am the vine. You are the branches. Those who live in me while I live in them will produce a lot of fruit. But you can’t produce anything without me.” John 15:5
In the same way we clothe ourselves in the natural; we must clothe ourselves in the spirit.
Remember, “…the ONE who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” 1 John 4:4 (emphasis mine)
