troubles, trials and challenges come our way they may involve people but people
are not our problem, the opposition comes from satan and his minions. We face a
spiritual battle: “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” (Eph 6:12; KJV).
Ephesians chapter 6, the apostle Paul went on to write that God has given us
armour for this battle (v13). Now the wonderful good news about this warfare is
that we are already winners as Christ won the victory over satan and all his
minions (Col 2:15; 1 Cor 15:57). We just need to stand and walk in that victory
(Eph 6:13-14) by faith.
love this passage from Ephesians on the armour of God (Eph 6:14-17) and as I
read it again the other day, I realized that it all comes down to knowing and
standing on God’s word. We are told to stand with the truth around our waist
(v14); truth is God’s word. We are to have our feet prepared to run with the
Gospel (v15). We need the shield of faith and we know that faith comes from
hearing God’s word (v16; Rom 10:17). In v17 salvation comes from knowing about
God, Jesus (the word) and it says our most effective weapon is the sword of the
Holy Spirit which is the word of God. When troubles, trials and challenges come
against you find out what God’s word says about your situation and stand on his
word in faith, speak it, and the word says satan must flee from you (James 4:7).
