Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggles is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:10-12
God is always looking out for you. He is always preparing you for the future and safeguarding you from forces you’re not even aware of. In fact, that’s the essence of today’s scripture. Jesus invites you to be strong in Him, putting on His might as you would protective clothing because there’s a battle for you raging where you cannot see it. There is an enemy who will oppose the godly lifestyle Christ has called you to and will do everything in his power to keep you from serving Jesus.
It’s important that you be aware of this battle because, at times, the discontentment or anxiety will rise up within you and may completely overwhelm you. You may be more tempted than ever to give up on God. But don’t. This is the time to pray more, love Jesus more, seek Him more. And most especially, to obey Him more.
His commands and His ways may not make sense, but with everything He instructs. He is guarding against something that is beyond your vision. So understand that sense of unrest in your spirit, you’re under spiritual attack. Fight to win by reaffirming your faith in Jesus and doing as He says.
