Satan

Ephesians chapter 6 talks about Satan and what a deceiver and a destroyer he is; he deceives in order to destroy. A part of his deception is to have us believe he is not at work opposing our pursuit of righteousness. To combat his efforts, we must do several things. First, recognize that we must “be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might”(v. 10), not in our own strength. Second, we must “put on the whole armor of God” (v. 11). Each piece described in verses 14-17 must be in place daily. Third, we must pray at all times in the Spirit (v. 18). And finally, having done all that, we must stand firm without fear, knowing we are secure (v. 13).
