Ephesians 6:11 “Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.”
Every day we awaken to increased assaults of the devil. Whether it’s new attacks on our freedom of worship or new assaults on TV and social media. It seems as though the demonic forces can’t be overcome. Our way of life is being destroyed. You hear people speak of God in the most derogatory terms and deny His existence. You see people attacking others in ways you never would have dreamed just a few years ago. The forces of evil are strong in this world.
If you are a child of God, you still live in this fallen world, but you are no longer of this world. The devil can affect the world around you, but he cannot destroy your light. God has given you all the weapons you need to defend against the devil’s tactics–the full armor of God; the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. (Listed in Ephesians 6;10-17)
No matter how dark the day, let your light shine before men. This gives you hope and helps to strengthen others around you. Darkness cannot overcome the light, but even a small light can banish the darkness.
