Eph 6:10-17 says to “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil”.
The Bible tells us that we are fighting a war against Satan, who seeks to destroy us. Therefore, we must take action, and put on God’s armor. As Christians, it is important for us to understand the severity of this battle. We are fighting an invisible war that is seen in the spirit realm, and in the natural. The armor guards and protects against the flaming darts of the evil ones.
In a real suit of armor, these items guard the soft and vulnerable parts of the body. The devil knows what areas to hit and what could take a person out. We know that the battles we face are spiritual battles, not flesh and blood. But try telling your heart that when someone willfully tries to hurt you or destroy you. The soul of a person, which is the mind, will and emotions can get easily off kilter if you aren’t diligent. The Word of God says to “have your loins girt about with truth and have on the breastplate of righteousness” as a Christian. We need to be armed so we can be dangerous in the spirit against the eternal enemy we all know as Satan.
1 Peter 5:8 says, “he prowls around looking for whom he can devour”. As a Christian, we can be Satan’s bait if we aren’t guarded and armed by the Word of God. Now what does that mean? When we are attacked in our minds or by people you better “speak the truth of what says about you”. The scriptures are the Truth no matter what your head says about you or someone who is easy prey for Satan himself. Yes, you heard me correctly, people can be used by the enemy to steal, kill, and destroy; Steal your peace and happiness, kill your dreams and joy, and destroy your hope.
But Jesus came that you may have life and have it abundantly. He is our good shepherd who laid down His life so we could live. When you give your life to Jesus, he takes all broken pieces and puts them back together. He brings life where there was only death. He takes the wounded, bleeding, heart and heals it. No matter what you have been through, He takes all trauma and turns it into triumph. The Holy Spirit is waiting to hear you say, “Heal me Lord; Help”. We are all on a journey to freedom. None of us will ever arrive until we meet Jesus face to face. You aren’t alone!
