The Power to be fully armed comes from God. In Ephesians 6:13 Paul exhorts us to put on the full Armor of God
that we can stand firm in ALL circumstances. We must also be cognizant that the ability to do so is the result of an unwavering faith in God. We must believe that each part of God’s Armor yields the results as described in Ephesians 6:14-17.
Peter goes into the details of standing firm even more so, reiterating that we must do away with our fears and trust that God’s perfect loving care cancels out fear and our victory only comes when we are standing FIRM in our Faith.
“Cast all your anxiety on the Lord because He cares for you.
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, STANDING FIRM in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
And the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To Him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.” 1 Peter 5:7-11
