Having done all, stand

Having done all, stand!
“Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand” (Ephesians 6:13).

It is very important for us to understand that the devil is not going to relent in his efforts at getting believers give up in their Christian walk. He will always come with his tricks and schemes to get you side tracked. Paul therefore encourages us to put on the full armour of God so that we can stand. The beginning portion of the key verse says, ‘wherefore take you…’ This means that there is a conscious effort to be made by us so we can stand. Some of us are expecting our Pastors and Church leaders to be praying for us so we can stand. If you desire to stand, you need to do it yourself. If you put in that needed effort, God will grace it but if you sit down expecting someone to do it on your behalf, you will wallow in despair.

Paul continues to say, ‘take unto you the whole armour of God...’ There are certain things that have been listed in the preceeding verses. Our ability to stand in times of trial depends on the armour we put on. We need the full armour of God; not partial. We need the belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness, helmet of salvation, sword of the spirit, shield of faith and feet of the gospel of peace. Having put on these things, we need to stand. So when the devil shows up with his schemes, tell him you’ll stand the moments of frustration, loneliness, rejection and disappointment. “Standing” isn’t an easy thing to do; like childbearing, it is painful, boring, lonely and uneventful but the God of all grace is able to strengthen you through the changing scenes of life. Draw the strength you need from His grace so you can stand. Having done all, stand!

Prayer
Help me Lord to put on your full armour so that I can stand through the test of time.
