Ephesians 6:13, 1413Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; (Ephesians 6:13‑14)EPH 6:13-1413Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; (Ephesians 6:13‑14)>
There are certain occasions when we have to "overcome"; others, when we have to "stand" (Eph 6:1313Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. (Ephesians 6:13)). How do we employ the corresponding days of peace which the Lord permits us to have? To strengthen ourselves in the truths God has given us, or to go to sleep amid comfortable surroundings, only to be unexpectedly awakened when Satan returns to the charge, and to find ourselves powerless in the presence of the enemy?
Those who are not fed are not able to fight. Let us use the times of prosperity in growing in our personal knowledge of the Lord, and in walking in communion with Him. We shall thus be strengthened to resist fresh attacks, and avoid falling into bondage more cruel than that from which we have escaped.
