Ephesians 6:10 tells us to ‘be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.’ That is, stop trusting in your own strength to live life. Depend on God to defend against the violent death throes of an already defeated devil. The rest of the passage tells us how. Following God’s instruction in Ephesians 6:10-20 is not going to mean that no tragedy, moral dilemma, sickness or injustice will ever affect your life again. Putting on this armour won’t stop you taking the hits – but it will mean that the devil won’t knock you down.
