Defeating the Enemy with the Armor of God

I heard a whisper.. In the craziness of life while thinking about blogging, how to make Satan mad, updating my status on Facebook, and battle strategies the Holy Spirit spoke to me, “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the devil’s schemes….” It was a whisper..a whisper from the Holy Spirit…a whisper on what I was supposed to do. He was reminding me to put on the full armor of God and stand. I also believe he put it in my path at this exact time so I could share it with you as well.

If you’re still fighting the enemy like I am this message may be for you too.

“Finally, 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. 

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against  – 

the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

Stand firm then, with the

  • belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the 
  • breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your 
  •  feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the 
  • shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the 
  • helmet of salvation and the 
  • sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.”

..Put on the full armor of God..and stand..
