Equip For Battle

Ephesians 6:11-18

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

God in His infinite wisdom knew that His people would be attacked by Satan on every side; therefore, God equipped us for the battle against sin. This is a spiritual warfare that began in heaven when Satan was thrown out for wanting to be more powerful than God his creator.

Satan being the masterful strategist he is has designed his attacks from every angle. That said, reflecting on our body armor we are equipped with all defensive weapons except one; God's Word the Bible. What this mean is that our defensive weapons are designed to deflect all of Satan's darts of wickedness. We are to gird up our loins with God's truth. We have on the breastplate of righteousness as we emulate the righteousness of God (v. 14). As shoes we are wearing the gospel of peace (v.15), and faith is our shield that gives us the courage to stand firm in the Lord (v.16). Our heads are covered with the helmet of salvation as believers we are covered with the blood of Jesus Christ our Savior who died for us.

Lastly, we as warriors take the fight to Satan with the sword of the Spirit-God's Word (v.17). We as believers are constantly praying as it is part of the conflict, and when Satan sees believers in prayer he becomes nervous because he knows that believers are in constant communication with God (v.18).

Let me close by saying, individual believers, the family and the entire faith community is under attack, but take heart Satan is a defeated foe, and we as God's children is victorious.

God dressed us for success.
