You Have Authority. Part 3

Put on the full Armor of God today! It says in Ephesians 6:12, "that our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against the powers of the dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil." However later on in the verse Paul tells us what to do, and that is to put on the Full Armor of GOD!!

Ephesians 6:13-17
"Put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything to stand. Stand firm then, with your belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this take up your shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God."

You see we have instructions as to how to overcome those powers of the dark world. We might not be able to see them with our physical eyes but when we are being attacked we sure can feel them in our physical body. We must stand firm and be ready for his attacks and make sure we are prepared for what he has.

Today Stand FIRM and make sure to put on your full armor of God.
