Time To Stop Wrestling Your Demon

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

Ephesians 6:1


Tell that demon to begone! Then put on your armor!

Jesus was tempted as we all are, yet he sinned not. Jesus was the Word in the flesh. So when He was tempted He quoted scripture to rebuke the devil.

In Ephesians chapter 6 it tells us to put on the whole armor of God.

The helmet of salvation: deliverance, safety, preservation, healing and soundness in Greek and Hebrew meanings and includes all the redemptive acts, which are justification, redemption, grace, forgiveness, sanctification, and glorification. We are no longer condemned through our salvation!

Put on the armor of God

The shield of faith: which is our belief in our salvation and the redemptive acts. You can quench the darts the enemy throws at you due to your faith that you are redeemed, that you are forgiven through the grace of God, that you are sanctified and are going to have that glorification. That there is no condemnation for as a believer in Christ through your salvation.

The sword of Spirit: the Word of God!

Christ himself in the flesh gave us an example of how to fight the enemy and that is with the Word of God. And we should do it boldly as we have been given authority as heirs in Christ through our salvation in Him.

Our loins (our lower back) should be girded with truth meaning wrapped up. So in essence we should not sway when the enemy hits us with his arrows, for we have the truth to support us and hold us up.

Our feet shod (a plural of shoe) in the preparation of the gospel meaning we should always be prepared or ready to use the gospel(Word) to use in defense against his attacks.

All this is a means to stand against the attacks of the devil.

If you fall and sin, do not let him get you down and feeling condemned for you know the truth!

There is, therefore, now no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Romans 8:10

Do not let the enemy tell you that your sin is unforgivable!

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness.

1 John 1:9

Stand strong!

  1. In today’s day and time, it takes the whole armor to defeat the enemy of our soul. And as you said, speaking the Word of God. His Word is so important in walking in the Spirit. We hide that precious Word in our heart that we might not sin against Him. Great post Stu. A great reminder to make sure I got my “whole” armor on! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼

    1. Thanks Renee! When I pray I speak the Word as a reminder of His promises. I need to start shouting it once I feel tempted in any shape or form as well. A reminder to myself 😉

      It’s strange that we can speak it for others but not for ourselves sometimes…

      1. Can you imagine if God spoke the world into existence by just speaking the word, how powerful His Word is? When we speak His Word, He goes into action! HE is the Word, after all. (John 1.2) I know what you mean….It can be easier at times to speak the word for someone else, than it is to speak it for ourselves. But the WORD is a very powerful weapon against the enemy! 🙌🏼
