We automatically have an enemy called Satan when we were born into this world. He is the enemy of every person in this world. It doesn't matter if some believes in God or not, Satan hates us because we are made in God's image.
Thank our Father in Heaven that He gave us an Armour to wear! The Bible teaches us that we don't have to cope with our problems, it teaches us how to walk in victory! We have everything in Christ once we accept Him as our Saviour. Ephesians 1:3 says, "Blessed be the God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ." We already have been blessed with EVERYTHING! In Christ, we have eternal life, all the promises of God in teh Bible, the Holy Spirit and we can have all the fruits of the Spirit. The reason why the Devil (Satan) pays extra attention to believers is not only becasue we have everything, it's because we are made in God's image.
Now, let's read the verses on Ephesians 6:10-18 :
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints
The first piece of armour is the Belt of Truth. When we first got saved by accepting Christ our Saviour, our lives changed because we recieved the Truth. We are set free by Christ when He gave us the Truth. Jesus said, "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." (John 8:32)
Satan loves to play mind games with all of us. One thing that he doesn't like is when we know the Truth. The more we know the Truth, the more the devil can not play games with our minds. Devil don't like it when we know the Truth because it will set us Free!
Thank you Father for the Belt of Truth! Thank you for the Armour you have given us so that we can stand against the defeated Devil! Becuase Jesus died on the Cross, the Devil was and is still defeated! We will stand tall and have Victory in the Blood of Christ. Amen!
Don't take wealth as your number one source of happiness. Our true richness is in our heart when we accept Jesus Christ as our personal Savior. That free gift is eternal life through Jesus Christ.
