Therefore, put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and, having done all, to stand.
The easiest enemy to defeat is the one who isn’t even aware he’s at war.
In the spiritual context, most of us aren’t even aware. Some people don’t believe in a spiritual reality. Some do believe in God, angels, and perhaps a devil, but they fail to regularly associate the events or circumstances of their lives as in any way related to the spiritual battle going on behind the scenes.
Are you aware that you’re at war? Do you know your rank and position? Do you receive and follow orders from your Commander? Are you well-read in God’s field manual, the Bible? Are you trained in the devil’s tactics and how to respond to them? Do you know exactly how to clothe yourself with the full armor of God? If not, you’ll become just another casualty of war, without ever knowing why.
Prayer: God, help me put on the whole armor of You, that I may be able to withstand in the evil day, and, having done all, to stand. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
