The Stand

July 18, 2006

This is something I wrote in November 10, 2003 (slight modification). With all the news lately regarding the Middle East, I think it is important for today!

Ephesians 6:11
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.


Every day I know that the devil is always trying to attack me, but for some reason the intensity is much stronger than in the past. But I know that I have a hedge of protection around me because of whose I Am!

In the Strong’s concordance it describes the following for wiles:

(3180) – methodeia, n. – scheming, craftiness, strategy

The devil has a strategy for everything he does. That is why it is so important that we place God’s armour on us so that we can fight. The Lord is a warrior (Exodus 15:3a NIV). The Lord wants us to fight against the thief who comes only to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10a). The Lord has given us His armour to stand up against the thief. We cannot fight the devil ourselves, but only when we put on God’s armour can we stand. The bible doesn’t say — FIGHT — it says STAND!
