Do you ever get overwhelmed by the evil that seems to be running rampant and destroying everything good and beautiful? Does your heart fail you when you think about the world at war, the burgeoning business of sex trafficking of children and women, the distortion of truth in the media, the drug addiction crises, people being shot in churches, schools that aren’t safe for our children, and—well, I could fill a book with today’s evil—right? What can we do to keep from completely despairing?
We must remember that God WILL triumph over ALL evil. He will make all wrongs right and WE can be part of it. The Bible says:
“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” (Ephesians 6:11-17)
Faith in God empowers us to “quench the fiery darts of the wicked.” He gives us the armour we need to stand against wickedness; but the problem is that we often prefer to run around naked on the battlefield, subjecting ourselves to fear and injury! Put on God’s armour! Girding ourselves with truth, means we are digging into God’s Word and developing a strong relationship with Him so that His wisdom exposes the lies when we hear them. Then, we know the truth and we desire to live in His righteousness which unequivocally protects our heart from evil. Our helmet of salvation gives our mind the assurance that our eternal destiny is secure and we can walk confident and unafraid to share the gospel of peace. When we are wearing our armor, God gives us His vision and we know that evil is no match for His love! We are bold and filled with courage!
Does this describe your life? If not, in can!!! You are the only person who can prevent your life from being lived defeated. When you seek God with more passion than you’ve ever sought anything else, you will live with victorious confidence!
