“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. Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.” (Ephesians 6:10, 13)
At times we may wonder if we will ever be able to stand unshakably firm. There is nothing more enjoyable and peaceful than walking in obedience to Jesus Christ; no drug, no man, no friend; absolutely nothing. Yet we may find ourselves wavering.
Satan, he is such a sly, smart weasel. He slithers through our minds, knowing our weaknesses, waiting to pounce. He sets things in motion before we realize it’s him. A glance, a smile, a laugh….all part of his plan. Is it worth giving up just a little piece of the life God has restored and given to us? Is it worth disappointing our Heavenly Father? The answer is an undeniably NO . Do not allow Satan to kill, steal or destroy what Jesus shed his blood to give.
Hold tight and STAND FIRM. Be firmly rooted and built up in Christ.
