Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

In Ephesians 6:13, we are called to do two things:

1. To put on the armor of God. This means to know the Word in our hearts. We must put in effort to learn His promises so that in good and bad times we have a steady foundation to stand on.
2. We must do all. As Christians, we are often called to do all, meaning withstand evil attacks. After we have done this – we stand. We stand firmly on the rock of God, the foundation we have built by putting on His armor and becoming unmovable.
This should be applied both personally, professionally, and relationally. We must never forget that the devil waits, lurking and desiring to kill, steal, and destroy all that is good in our lives. He waits at the door of every area knocking, hoping that we let him in. As humans, we will fail at times and crack the door open for him. WHEN, this happens, and not IF it happens; we must be prepared for battle by putting on the armor of God and withstanding. Our Father will not put us to shame and he will fight our battles for us (Exodus 14:14). #Godkulture #Vision&Valor

    Paul says twice (significantly) to put on the WHOLE armor of God. It is so near at hand to take on a part of the armor, i.e. the protective/defensive parts, and then “take it easy”. Of course that must be first, and that takes some time and attention.
    But Paul exhorts also to take up the offensive parts: the sword of the Spirit, , which is the word of God, praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; Situational awareness, both for my own fight, and for my brothers and sisters, who may or may not be up to combat readiness.
    There is a reason Paul takes this subject up at the END of Ephesians (which is about development), and not at the beginning, as we really do need a development to become “a good soldier of Jesus Christ”; lots of training and practice under His guidance, “so that we may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier”
