The quality or state of being strong; the capacity for exertion and endurance.
The ability to resist attack or a force; while remaining solid, tough, and unmovable Ė (Websterís Dictionary)
Relying on anything in todayís chaotic world, is like trying to hit the bulls-eye on a moving target or stand upright on sinking sand.
The truth is, none of us, in and of ourselves, have any real degree of strength when our lives come crashing down around us, do we? Nevertheless, as children of the Most High God, we have access to His strength and His power.
We have an enemy who has come to steal, kill and destroy our lives, but we can be armed and dangerous if we rely on the weapons we have in our spiritual armors.
If we put on the whole Armor of God; the Belt of Truth; found only in Godís word, the Breastplate of Righteousness, that is only found in what Jesus did on the cross, the Gospel of Peace, because we have peace with God through Christ, we now have the joy of sharing that peace with others. We must put on the Shield of Faith, which quenches and destroys all the fiery darts of unbelief; our faith can move all the mountains of destruction out of our lives. Our Helmet of Salvation, gives us confidence that we are, and will always be, children of the Most High God. We have been given the Sword of the Spirit; Godís word, with which we can slice through the enemies deceptions, and walk free in the truth. Our prayers, offered as we confidently and boldly approach God throne with, will avail much.
Armed with these weapons and this armor assures us we are strong and have the capacity to endure any and all this world and itís chaos can cause, to be vanquished. We can attack with force our enemy; remain solid, tough, and unmovable in the face of any trick, ploy, test, trial, or tribulation the enemy tries to defeat us with.
Put on the whole Armor of God today, and you will see your enemies flee before you.
