Preparing for War

Every single day we are involved in battle... A spiritual battle.

As teens, we face temptations all the time... It's hard to resist sometimes.

Ephesians 6:12 says, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

This is not a battle that we can fight using our own strength; it is far above our level.

Fortunately, God has provided equipment for us to fight our spiritual enemies.

In Ephesians 6:10-17, we are instructed to use the Armor of God to successfully battle the temptations of Satan.

Through the equipping of us done by God, we are able to stand against all the wiles (trickery) of the Devil.

Are you equipped for the battle?
