WE STAND IN THE LORD

If Not for God "devotional"

Bible Text: "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. 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 6:12-13)

What happen when our dream starts to turn into a nightmare, what could frighten human rather than when all seem all hope is gone?

Murphy's Law is an adage or epigram that is typically stated as: "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong". Sure, but God's word say putting the whole armour of God will enable you to withstand the evil day.

"For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood" The fact that our real battle is not against flesh and blood is lost on many Christians, who put all their efforts in that direction.

Paul’s idea here is much the same as in 2 Corinthians 10:3-4: For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds.

Paul used a variety of terms to refer to our spiritual enemies. We should regard them as being on many different levels and of many different ranks, yet they all have one goal: to knock the Christian down from their place of standing.

God has given His people a call, a mission, a course to fulfill. Satan will do his best to stop it. When he attacks and intimidates, we are to stand.  We do the Lord's work and stand against every hint of spiritual opposition.

Prayer: O Lord, drive away all darkness in every area of my life.
