Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place]. Ephesians 6:13 (AMPC)
You are God’s design, and you’re designed to withstand. Life, health, family, marriage, friendships, relationships, work, skills, ministry, and business are designed.
Design determines durability. The way something is designed determines whether it will stand or not because sooner or later it will have to be tried and tested.
When God is the origin and architect, what’s designed is destined to withstand.
You’re created in God’s image and likeness. You’re God’s very own design – He Himself is your design.
You’re not made to faint, fail, or fall. You’re made to last.
You ought to live and operate according to your design because that’s how you are able to withstand. This is what is meant by putting on the complete armor of God.
The armor include;: Belt of truth, breast plate of righteousness, gospel of peace shoes, shield of faith, helmet of salvation, and sword of the spirit. See- Ephesians 6:14-17.
Live, walk and operate by the Truth which is God’s Word. Let your heart be established in righteousness – that you are righteous in Christ. Walk and live in the Gospel of peace – you have peace with God through the Blood of Jesus Christ. Stop and put out every uncertainty in life with the shield of faith – leaning entirely on God. Have a mindset of wholeness and wellbeing with the helmet of salvation which is Jesus Himself our Savior and the Salvation He accomplished for us on the Cross. Fight with the sword of the spirit which is the Word of God
Let your life, health, family, marriage, friendships, relationships, work, skills, ministry, and business be designed on truth, righteousness, peace, faith in God, salvation through Christ, and the Word of God. That’s how you will withstand every test and trial and stand firmly in your place.
