Today’s Reading:

Ephesians 6: 10 -20

“Put on the whole armour of God so that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.” (v. 11)


Whether we are conscious or not as Christians, we are on the battlefield. And it will be disastrous if we are not fighting correctly or not having the understanding of spiritual warfare. Devil is fighting tooth and nail to get us down. The devil uses schemes as stated in verse 11 of our text. Scheme is a systematic plan of future action, a plot or secret, devious plan. Devil is never in a hurry to get a Christian down. Devil can be pursuing a man for decades and he is not tired. He systematically and strategically fights his battle. He did that to great Samson and finished him. Reuben lost his place due to this scheme; Esau also fell. Countless men and women have fallen in our generation due to the scheme of the devil. We must have the understanding that our battle is not against flesh and blood but against powers, forces of darkness and spiritual host in high places.

Paul in his godly wisdom portrays the armour of a soldier to metaphorically explain what Christians must do in order to uphold their victory against all that Satan would launch against them. The armour must be put on by Christians consciously as we live our daily lives. None of the armour must be missing; once it is missing the devil will strike. Truth must be told all the time, righteous living must be embraced, gospel must be preached, faith must be exercised, salvation is not negotiable, we must use the Sword of the Spirit and pray without ceasing. Children of God must use this weapon on daily basis so that victory can be ascertained.


Prayer Points

  1. Father, may l not lack any of the whole armour, in Jesus name

  2. Oh Lord, teach me how to apply each of the armour on the battlefield, in Jesus name.

  3. I shall not be wounded on the battlefield, in Jesus name.

  4. For as many who have been wounded in the battle of life, receive strength in Jesus name.

  5. Every altar of wickedness in our nation, catch fire, in the name of Jesus.

  6. Every arrow of insanity fired into this nation, die, in the name of Jesus.
