Armor Up

He beats me every time! My brother is five years older than I am. When I was about twelve, my parents got us some boxing gloves. I guess they didn’t like me as much as I thought. I remind you of the fact that my brother is five years older than I. Each time we fought, my blood was involved; or I would wake up wondering where I was. There was no way I was going to win. I have come to realize that the same is true if I try to battle satan on my own. I cannot win without the help of Jesus. I have tried myself and watched others try to battle satan without God’s Word, His Spirit, and His help. It is not pretty. Ephesians is all about this warfare and how God gives us the power to win. If you find yourself being beat up, spend some time in Ephesians. At the end of the book, you can even armor up for the battle.
