Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 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. (Ephesians 6:10-12 KJV)
Recognize the closer you walk with God and do His will, the attack of the enemy will be intense. We are not fighting an ordinary battle here. The attacks will come when you least expect them. One thing you must keep in mind that it's not personal! It really isn't about you! The enemy doesn't want anyone to have any joy. Do not think you are special because he's picking on you. You are special because The Lord said: "the battle is mine!" It is not our battle to fight! But while God is fighting this battle, don't stand there unprotected and think you will not get harmed. Paul encourages us that as we stand to allow God to fight the battle we must put on the whole armor of God!
Those wicked attacks will bounce off God's armor! Now, remember the attacks are gonna come, especially the more you do His will! Actually that is a sign of God's favor and the enemy's anger. I'd rather have God's favor over the enemy's anger any day. I encourage you to stand, be protected, let God do the fighting, and never forget "You're already victorious in Christ Jesus!"
Never forget, As I Encourage You, I Encourage Myself!
