Everyday, we are on a battlefield. Whether we like it or not, we are living in a war zone. It is not like a war of nations. This is a war that rages on all around us, every day and every night. Most of it is unseen and unheard, but you are in the midst of it. It is spiritual warfare.
That's why it is instructed in the Bible that we should put on the full armor of God wherever we will go. It should be worn everyday of our lives, especially when we go out. The thing that we really can do is take a stand and fight. As a believer, you are a soldier in the army of God, and He wants you to stand and fight for Him. But do not worry, greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.
Be ready! Let the truth be like a belt around your waist, and let God’s justice protect you like armor. Your desire to tell the good news about peace should be like shoes on your feet. Let your faith be like a shield, and you will be able to stop all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Let God’s saving power be like a helmet, and for a sword use God’s message that comes from the Spirit. These are the armors of God so that you can be ready for the enemy's attacks.
