Ephesians 6:11-18 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Ephesians 6:11-18

Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 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. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

 

Every morning I pray on the Armor of God. One of the things that has stuck out to me for a while now is that it comes equipped with a sword! God doesn’t call us to just cower and hide but to fight back with the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God! But if we are not spending time in the Word daily, it’s not going to be effective!

 

It says that our battle isn’t against flesh and blood but it’s spiritual, so this tells me that bombs and bullets aren’t going to harm this enemy! We need to have a spiritual nuke, which is at our fingertips daily! We just have to pick it up and read it!

 

And after we read it, let’s pray it back to Him; He loves that!! In verse 18, right after Paul tells us about our armor, he adds the cherry on top , which is to Pray about any and everything, especially each other! We are stronger together in Christ than anything this world or the next can throw at us!!

 

To me, it’s super clear that if you’re not fighting for Gods kingdom your fighting against it!! So, suit up brothers and sisters, grab your sword, and I will see you in the trenches!!!

 

God bless you all! I truly love you and so does God!! Glory to God!!!
