Fighting in the army of the Lord

As a soldier in the army of the Lord, we should be strong in the Lord knowing he is with us in battle. You should put on the armour of God so that you can fight against the wiles of the devil. Ephesians 6:11 It is not our neighbor we fight against it is the principalities and the rulers of darkness that we fight. God has given his people the whole armour so that we may be able to stand in that evil day against any demonic spirit that comes against us. The armour consists of loins girt about with truth, breastplate of righteousness, feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace, shield of faith, helmet of salvation, and the sword of the spirit which the word of God. All of these things prepare us for the day the devil comes against us. God has given us the equipment to not war after the flesh but to fight the devil and any principality that exalts itself. Where we do battle with the devil is in the spirit through prayer. Faithfully making our petitions known to God is how we come against any of the enemy’s tactics.

Refer to Ephesians 6:10-17
