Stand Strong in the Lord!

Scripture reading for August 31st:  Ephesians 6

Key Scriptures for over-comers:  Ephesians 6:10-13  “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.   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.”  

Believers are in a cosmic battle with forces of evil and darkness in the spiritual realm.  These forces are out to steal our faith and blessings, kill our bodies, and ultimately want to destroy our souls in the Lake of Fire with the devil and his dark angels.  God has equipped His children with a full set of armor that they might stand up against this host of evil.  This armor is not physical, but spiritual and is able to protect us and enable us to stand and over-come this wicked host of evil!  We are more than conquerors through Him (Jesus)!

Observations for over-comers:  Over-comers stand daily in the full armor of God through faith in Jesus Christ!  They stand in victory giving glory to Christ Jesus their Lord and armor!  “Who is this coming from Edom, from Bozrah, with His garments stained crimson?  Who is this, robed in splendor, striding forward in the greatness of His strength?  It is I, speaking in righteousness, mighty to save.”  (Isaiah 63:1)
