The scripture of the week at my church this week is Ephesians 6:10-11:

…Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

I love the reminder — be strong in the Lord because He is powerful.

I love what I get to wear — the whole armor of God.

I love the result — I can stand against the wiles of the devil.

The Lord’s power + the protection of His armor = a defeated devil.

I imagine the devil hitting his head — hard — against the armor of God. When I choose to live in the power of the Lord, wrapped in His armor, I’m pretty sure the devil leaves with a headache. I like that. 🙂
