Ephesians 6: 10. In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [draw your strength from Him and be empowered through your union with Him] and in the power of His [boundless] might. 11 Put on the full armor of God [for His precepts are like the splendid armor of a heavily-armed soldier], so that you may be able to [successfully] stand up against all the schemes and the strategies and the deceits of the devil. (Amplified)
Theres a mindset delivered to the believer, and it’s not a failure mentality. In short it’s not a winning mentality but rather a victorious one, meaning we are not trying to win a victory but rather have already won the victory and enforcing that same victory in Christ.
The verse above makes us understand that derive our strength and ability from God, who won the victory for us and made us partakers with Him in that Victory. So God didn’t just win with he ensured he equipped us with that power.
Now here is one of the ways the enemy tries to outwit the believer by selling false notions making us believe that we are yet to attain maturity to confront to stand against him. The only thing the they lack is knowledge. The right kind of knowledge.
Even when Paul said we should put on the full armor, the weapons of the enemy were strategies, schemes and deceit. So the only thing the enemy has working for him is to get you believe a lie. The primary plane for confrontation is your mind. So it’s essential for us to be renewed in the mind of our spirit.
Know you have already won, know that you have eternity and your salvation is sure, know that your faith in Jesus is working and productive, know that the only way to salvation is Jesus. Know that you have righteousness as a nature. Know that the word of God is your mouth is as effective as it is in God’s mouth sharper than any two edged sword piercing to the assunder of soul and spirit, and must accomplish whatever you sent to do. Know that truth is in your nature as deceit and lie is the nature of the Devil.
All the schemes and strategies of the enemy is to get you to doubt one of those realities concerning you. No matter what the enemy does know you are one with God Far above principalities and powers. Know this till every cell in your body knows this as a fact.
You are victorious in Christ Jesus.
