“A Final Word: Be strong in the Lord and His mighty power. Put on all of God’s armour so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh and blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities in the un-seen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the Heavenly places.”
Have you ever lit a match in a dark room? Isn’t it interesting that just a small flame can bring light to a whole room. Even in the darkest of places (spiritually) our light can shine so bright that the darkness will have to flee! It is the light in us that comes from God the Father!!
Today’s verse contains so much theology and truth yet there is one things that stands out above it all… We can and must stand firm in the power of God’s might against the war that is waged against us, followers of Jesus. Yet this battle cannot be fought with swords and guns, but rather by the power of the believer, secure in Christ and armed with pure minds, secure in our identity in Christ, armed with truth (about God and how He sees us) and the Word of God to fight for us!
It is imperative that we start each day in submission to Jesus and filled with the Holy Spirit. Let us not take for granted the battle we face in our daily lives. More importantly let us remember the victory that we live in; The victory won by Jesus for our sakes. It is in His Name that demons flee. We are in Christ and He is in us. That means we are on the winning side… always!
“God is light, and there is no darkness in Him at all!”
1 John 1:5b
