Is your life so well fortified that you can withstand the problems you’re facing in such a way that you still have the peace of Christ and even joy? Ephesians 6:10-13 tells us that we are on a battlefield; demons want to diminish our trust in God, but God has given us everything we need to be victors. In this episode, Terry Modica shares ideas on how to fortify your faith more completely. She uses as an example the story of how a Good News Ministries conference was rescued through an act of complete surrender and explains how this fortified her faith.
Satan is very much working to try to destroy your faith. We need to fortify ourselves on a daily basis because we have an enemy that is trying to undermine our faith all the time. Let me read to you what Ephesians 6 says about this. This is beginning with verse 10: “Finally, draw your strength from the Lord and from his mighty power. Put on the armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the tactics of the devil.”
And this next verse (this is verse 12 now) is an extremely valuable verse: “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but our struggle is with the principalities, with the powers, and the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens. Therefore, put on the armor of God, that you may be able to resist on the evil day, and having done everything, to hold your ground.”
Let’s unpack that. To “put on the armor of God” means we need to fortify our faith life in such a strong way that the tactics of demons don’t impact us.
