Ephesians 6 the full armor of God

Ephesians 6:13 Stand Your Ground #241

The past 3 weeks I have shared from Ephesians 6 and I am continuing again today with Ephesians 6:13 which says, “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.”

Remember when I posted about Ephesians 6:11, which said, “Put on the full armor of God?” We see that same phrase again in this verse, which means clearly, it’s very important. Again we are now told two times to put on the “full” or “complete” armor of God. Remember, you need to put on the full armor, not just a few pieces of it. 

Why do you need 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.” Without putting on the full armor of God, you won’t be able to withstand the evil attacks that come your way. 

Satan will do anything to stop God’s plans in your life and it’s your job to use the tools given to you to stand your ground when the attacks come. Notice that this verse says the word “stand” twice. Not only will you not be able to defeat the enemy if you don’t use the complete set of tools, but you also won’t be able to defeat him by sitting down. You must take a stance! You must be in position and alert. The enemy is very deceiving and will come like a prowling lion (1 Peter 5:8) and you will not defeat him unless you are in position to do so. Not only that, but when you are prepared for the battles you face, you will still be standing after they come.

It’s so important that we understand that every Believer is in a war and every Believer will face the enemy. As a Believer, it’s your job to access the tools you need to prepare yourself for battle. I will be sharing more about those tools next week, so come back and join me for more!

    Greetings in Christ Jesus, Caroline!

    I have been admiring the way you bring the Words of God to all who wants it with the lovely Bible Verse you post on Pinterest and elsewhere. It has been a source of real blessing to me – somehow so often these verse are exactly the ones I need at that specific moment!
    Thanks so much for sharing your faith in such beautiful ways, may that sharing bring you many blessings in Jesus!!

    I am an older lady who lives in Australia, and now belong to a lovely very joyful and awake church here, and it is with much delight and thankfulness that I am able to rejoice, worship and joyfully sing praises to our Lord from so deep in my heart and spirit!

    Because I make all manner of Christian crafts for the church, I would like to ask your permission to use those lovely blue verses on bookmarks and cards for our community,please?
    I do make up my own designs as well, but the simplicity and clarity of how you work with the Scriptures just brings a sense of quiet joy and peace to my heart, and it would be so good to share that with others!

    I have only started reading bits of your blog, and really enjoy what you write about, and the way you do it, – again with a sweet simplicity which could only come from a heart filled with faith and joy in Christ.!

    May God bless you and your husband richly, and bestow on you that which your hearts desire!

    Elise Menne
