Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.
Ephesians 6:10-11 (NLT)
When fear comes, it attacks you in your weakest point and you are caught in a crisis of faith. Paul knew danger. He knew distress and yet while sitting in prison, he wrote that we need to be strong in the Lord and His mighty power! How? How can we maintain such strength? Paul knew we could not do it by ourself so he wrote, “Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm.” He uses various pieces of armor as a metaphor. We are in a very war for our soul and our helmet of salvation protects our very soul and nothing will ever separate us from His love. Nothing! The belt of truth and body armor of righteousness protects us from the horrific lies that attack us. Guilt and shame cannot touch us. Paul follows with the shoes of peace. Both peace with God and the peace of God will help fear dissipate. Our shield of faith stops all the fiery arrows of the devil. And the Sword of the Holy Spirit slays all our enemies. The Spirit prays on our behalf. He comforts, protects and leads us to victory. Today, stand firm! Put on your spiritual armor and be strong in the Lord and His mighty power.
Oh Father, help me today take salvation, truth, peace, faith and Your Spirit and stand strong in Your mighty power. In Jesus’ name.
