Proverbs 24:10 says that if you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small. When we are weak, we can rely more on God’s strength. If you get weary in a time and in a land of peace, how will you handle the really bad times? (Jeremiah 12:5) We need to get strong in the Lord. MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN CONTACT WITH THE LIVING JESUS! Rather than wondering what others think, want God’s approval. Get right with God by repenting. Drop those sins, even those that seem small. Put on the whole armor of God. (Ephesians 6:10-18) Ask yourself if you are missing a part of the armor, because if you are, you can’t stand against the devil. Where the devil attacks you shows you where you are weak. The devil hates you and wants to kill you. There is a real devil, who has strategies against you in a real war. Be careful to notice the subtle way the devil steals your time away from God. STAND and don’t waver. We stand against the wiles of the devil. We don’t wrestle against people. Some seasons in your life are darker than others. You don’t need to be afraid of the evil day, if you have your armor on. Run to the Word and stand on God’s promises. Your faith should put out the enemy’s darts. Paul’s expansion on the armor of God is really from Isaiah’s teaching in Isaiah 59:14-17. Intercession was tied in with all the pieces of armor. Satan tries to take you out of the role of intercessor. He is afraid you will get into the Spirit. When things go wrong, PRAY MORE. LEAN ON AND FOLLOW THE SPIRIT. TAKE THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, PRAYING.
