“Having Done All Stand”

battle plan

We are given instructions in the Word of God, of how to overcome and stand victorious in the face of spiritual opposition. First, we are told we must be supernaturally infused with strength through our union with the Lord Jesus! It is His boundless might that we must draw our strength from to continue on in the battle. Secondly, we are told we must put on the suit of armor that God wears when he goes into battle, so that we will be protected as we fight against the evil strategies of the accuser! “Our wrestling combat is not with human beings, but against the highest principalities and authorities operating in rebellion under the heavenly realms. For they are a powerful class of demon-gods and evil spirits that hold this dark world in bondage. Because of this you must wear the entire armor that God provides so you’re protected as you confront the slanderer, for you are destined to rise victorious. Hold your ground, and put on truth as a belt to strengthen you to stand in triumph. You must walk in God’s truth, not in the lies that the enemy attempts to undermine you with. Next, knowing that you have been bought with a price and God’s love has set you apart to serve the Lord, put on holiness as the protective armor that covers your heart. Then shod your feet, and stand alert, in the readiness produced by the gospel of peace, then you’ll always be ready to share the blessings of peace as you subdue you enemies. In every battle, take faith as your wrap-around shield, for it is able to extinguish the blazing arrows coming at you from the evil one! In Faith we understand the good news that the Messiah died for our sins-He was buried and was raised from the dead-we are His blood bought children- and nothing can separate us from His love! By faith we understand that God is on our side and fighting the fight of faith with us. This is the good news that we heartily receive and on which we stand. Embrace the power of salvation’s full deliverance, like a helmet to protect your thoughts from lies. Take the mighty razor-sharp Spirit-sword, as the Spirit wields the spoken Word of God.  At all times, Pray passionately in the Spirit, as you constantly intercede with every form of prayer at all times. Pray the blessings of God upon all his believers, with strong purpose and perseverance. Then having done all of this “Stand” in the truth of God’s powerful Logos, knowing we are Victor’s through Jesus Christ our Lord!

Ephesians 6:10-18 “ Be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]:draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides].Put on God’s whole armor that you may be able to successfully stand up against the strategies and the deceits of the devil. For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents]. But against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness, in the heavenly (supernatural)sphere. Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and having done all to stand. Stand therefore having tightened the belt of truth around your loins and having put on the breastplate of integrity and of moral rectitude and right standing with God. And having shod your feet in preparation to face the enemy with stability and the promptness and the readiness produced by the good news of the Gospel of peace. Lift up over all the shield of saving faith, upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation and the sword that the Spirit wields, which is the Word of God. Pray at all times.”
