Verse of the Day – Ephesians 6:12

“For our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12 (NRSV)

Prodigal Thoughts: The apostle Paul was writing to the church in Ephesus, encouraging us to put on the full armor of God so we are able to stand the battle we constantly face. We all know that we are constantly under attack and the side of evil is looking for any weakness we may have to gain a foothold in our lives, whether it is in our minds/thoughts, hearts/emotions, or in any other way possible. Thankfully, God is our strength and our protector. That said, we must do all that we can to be prepared for battle through prayer and relationship with our source of strength. Standing firm, shoulder-to-shoulder with our fellow Christians, God will lead us into battle and He will be victorious. 

Prayer for today: I pray that we would ready ourselves daily for what we might face. That we would solely depend on our God and Savior for the wisdom and protection we need to face our enemies. But also that we would have the love and compassion to pray for those who wish us harm.
If you need prayer, please reply and I will pray for you. If you would like to talk about this verse or have questions, I’m always open for your feedback.

God’s grace on you…
