Finally, my brothers, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
– Ephesians 6:10-11
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
On the path of believing in the Lord, spiritual battles always happen around each of us Christians. It is recorded in the, “And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lies in wickedness” (1 John 5:19). So when we return before God to pursue the way of the light, the demon will get in the way to disturb our life by any trick. It tries to make us return to its camp and betray God. Hence, how to defeat demon in spiritual wars is the truth that every Christian should know.
This verse shows us that we should rely on the Lord and put on the whole armor of God, that we may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. It is recorded in the Book of Ephesians 6:14-17 that what is the whole armor, but God’s words are the most important. Just as God’s words say, “The truth that man needs to possess is found in the word of God, a truth that is the most beneficial and helpful to mankind. It is the tonic and sustenance that your body needs, something that helps man restore his normal humanity, a truth that man should be equipped with. The more you practice God’s word, the more quickly your life will blossom; the more you practice God’s word, the clearer the truth becomes. As you grow in stature, you will see things of the spiritual world more clearly, and you will be more powerful to triumph over Satan. Much of the truth that you don’t understand will be made clear when you practice the word of God.” If we can know more truth, distinguish between good and evil, and rely on God when tempted and attacked by demon, then we’ll be certain to see through the demon’s tricks, and our spiritual life will make more progress. Therefore, it’s crucial to read and practice God’s words more.
