Ephesians 6:13b -14a… “Having done everything to stand, continue standing” …

We live in a world where it seems like the odds are always working against us to bring us down a notch or to reduce our value or worth in some fashion. The aging process naturally causes our  bodies to deteriorate.  When we buy a new car, immediately after we drive it off the car lot, it depreciates. We work hard for to earn a decent wage and the moment we cash our check, inflation reduces the time value of our wages. In everything we are and in everything we do there seemingly is a war constantly being waged against us to take what we have and reduce the value or worth. The scripture found in Ephesians 6:12-18 describes this situation as a spiritual warfare that we must constantly fight. It’s not a physical or natural warfare, but a spiritual phenomenon that must be fought with spiritual weapons, standing strong on our spiritual values. Since we live in a natural world, it’s not easy fighting a constant natural battle with spiritual weapons. However, wisdom and experience will teach you that natural obstacles and natural opponents can not be overcome simply with natural means. We must learn that spiritual weapons must constantly be employed to stand strong against life’s adversity. Spiritual weapons such as Honest Living, Truth, and Faith are key factors in sustaining our spirit and standing tall in the midst of difficulty. So after you have done everything naturally possible to handle a situation correctly, keep standing strong on your Faith in the King of kings and Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ. Stand Strong in the Spirit.
