Ephesians 6:11 says, Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
A friend once told me to physically go through the motions of putting on the armor of God every morning. So I did just that for quite a period of time. I acted out putting on each piece to remind myself Satan’s schemes against me are real. It helped me to remember I need God’s protection at every moment.
The Good News Translation of this verse says, “Put on all the armor that God gives you, so that you will be able to stand up against the Devil's evil tricks.”
Satan is our real enemy. He walks through people, circumstances, trials, and temptations as an attempt to destroy us at every turn. And boy-oh-boy, is he ever tricky! But when I am wearing the armor of God, I can take my stand against Satan - the dirty, rotten liar - and His attacks are warded off with God’s truth in Scripture.
If possible, stand up right now and put on the armor - God’s armor. And beloved of God, stand against the Devil every day! It won’t be long till the fight will be over. We win in the power of Jesus’ name!
And there you go!
