Armor Up: Claiming Our Spiritual Victory
“Surely, Lord, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield” (Psalm 5:12).
God fights spiritual battles for us. Instead of shouldering the weight of the world ourselves, we are encouraged to look to Him for assistance. “Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere” (Ephesians 6:18). In this time of turmoil, we must pray for God to provide a hedge of protection around us, our families, our country, and the world. Psalm 91:1 states, “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.” God is more than just our Father in Heaven. He is our protector, our deliverer, our healer, our peace, and our friend. We can find true rest in His presence.
Every believer can harness the armor of God to deflect Satan’s schemes. “Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” (Ephesians 6:17). This doesn’t mean we are immune to the enemy’s tactics, but we can hold him at bay by guarding our minds against thoughts that rob us of our joy. We must remember that our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, authorities, and cosmic powers of this dark world (Ephesians 6:12). This requires us to fight with spiritual weapons such as prayer, scripture, and faith. We must also stand firm in God’s truth, resisting the lies of the enemy.
Your Call to Action
Pray like never before, immerse yourself in scripture, and let your faith rise! Don’t let fear take hold of your heart. Trust in God and His promises, knowing He is fighting for you. Remember to wear God’s armor every day, not just during times of crisis, but as a daily practice to guard your mind and heart from the attacks of the enemy. Let us stand united as believers in Christ, trusting in His power to overcome all evil.
“The Lord himself watches over you! The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade” (Psalm 121:5).
“The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety” (Psalm 18:2).
“When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer” (Psalm 94:19).
Father God, thank You for Your goodness to us. We pray for Your hedge of protection around us, our families, and our homes. Only You know what tomorrow holds. We pray for Your perfect will for our lives. Your way is better than our way. Give us the peace and comfort that only You can give. In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.
A Comforting Closure
The battle belongs to the Lord, who has already secured our victory.
