Ephesians 6. He encouraged us to put on the armor (the shield, the protection, the defense) of God for us to be strong, mighty, and influential in the world, to make a difference. That is one of the main reasons we exist.
I am going to break down a few lines of scripture that Paul talks about, because they are powerful words. The following is what Paul said:
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. The Lord will give us what we need (the strength, power and boldness) to move on with our goals.
11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. Trust in God and stay atuned to Him. That way we will be able to stand boldly against any plot against us.
12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. When people and things come against us, it's not them we need to fight, but that spirit that lives in them. There are many forces working against us, in the form of people, places, and things.
13 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. The amour of God is strong. Nothing can come against it. All will be defeated. So as we continue in our faith (trust in Him), then when it's all said and done, we will come out victorious.
In order to be strong, mighty and to make a difference, we need the Armor of God. Nothing worthwhile will happen without it.
