“Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm” (Ephesians 6:13).
Do not walk as one with no protection. The devil seeks whom he may devour. Be led by the Lord and not by the world. The world is being led toward destruction by the wicked one. Come then and live in the light of the Lord and know that in Him is all hope and the only future worth living. Resist evil and evil will flee. Receive the light and it will fill you. In everything good, stand firm.
Lord, help me to understand these simple truths and to live them today and every day. Guide me to see the schemes of the wicked one and to resist them. Teach me to stand firm in the hope You have given me so that I may live my life for which You died. You know the way I need to go and You know where I need to stand firm. In You, grant that I would have understanding to do what is needed.
Thank You Lord Jesus for the goodness You have given me. Guide me, O Lord, in the way of eternal life so that I may now and always abide in You and You in me. Keep me close to You, Lord, in order that I may not stray, nor be struck down by the wickedness all around me. In all things, help me to always cling to You and the grace You have given me so that I may stand firm in the faith. Amen.
