“A final word: 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. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:10-12 NLT
When we are faced with life’s challenges oftentimes we look at the person, in the natural who caused the trouble for us, however in Ephesians God is reminding us that it is not the flesh and blood that we should come against with but the real enemy behind it.
I still believe that prayer is still the most powerful weapon that God equipt us to have. Whenever we pray, God sends His messengers to protect our prayers and He inhabits it as said many times in the bible that He inhabits the praises of His people. When we pray, we don’t just pray but we praise Him for who He is and how great He is and what He has done.
In Ephesians, God reminded on how we put His full armor so that we are equipt in our daily battles. The enemy does know that he is already a defeated foe however for some who doesn’t have the revelation of it; the enemy will still continue to supress and harrass. Thus, Ephesians is a good reminder that when we equipt ourselves nothing, no thing and no one can come against us because God said we can stand against ALL devil’s schemes. Now, that’s power!
Whatever it is that you are going through. Come to think about Ephesians 6:10-12. It’s a powerful message to help awaken that He has equipt us for every battle. An armor that no one can come against and the word of God who serves as our sword to surpass whatever we are facing through. Remember, that David killed Goliath in just one stone but it is not the stone that killed Goliath but it was God who helped David kill the giant.
What giant are you facing today? Remember that you are created in His image and likeness. And He that is greater in this world lives in you. Like God, you are powerful too. Get revelation from Him always. Fellowship with the Holy Spirit. You have the same power that raise Christ from the dead. You are powerful, too. Just know who are you are in Christ and you will always come victorious. Always!
