13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.
14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, - Ephesians 6:13-14

We must be careful to take the enemy very seriously. The battle is not a metaphor, there is a very real struggle happening between the good and the evil forces of the world.  It may be hard to imagine because it’s not as tangible as the chair you’re sitting on or the person standing in front of you, the enemy isn’t easily identifiable with horns and a tail, but it’s real. We are warned multiple times in Scripture about the reality of evil forces at work in this world. The enemy seeks to destroy you. 

Since the enemy isn’t tangible in our day to day life, we have a tendency to minimize the spiritual battle that exists around us. We think we can manage anything that comes our way because we’re pretty good at managing our lives. But the enemy is sneaky, and he knows where you’re weak. When the attacks come, we can instantly feel defeated, terrified, and alone. 

It doesn’t have to be that way if we arm ourselves with the armor of God. If we spend time in the Word every day and we get on our knees in humble prayer to the One who fights this battle for us, we can have victory even in the most challenging moments of the battle. 

Press on ~ you are loved 💗
