Ephesians 6:13 KJV

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

As we know, the enemy is seeking whom he may devour. 1 Peter 5:8 says, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.” That scripture tells me several things. One is that I have an enemy. Another is that he wants to devour me. It also tells me something else. If he is walking around seeking whom he may devour, that means he cannot devour whoever he wants! Those who are sober and vigilant can be prepared to overcome all opposition of the enemy!

In our text scripture above we see that when we have done all that we know to do, we must stand! This is assuming that you have put on the armor of God, you are bringing thoughts into subjection, and you are standing on the promises of God. In reality, this is speaking of a believer that the devil cannot defeat and who has absolute victory! He/she has conquered and is now standing on the Word, ready to overcome the next opposition they may face.

I have experienced this for myself and observed this pattern in others lives repeatedly. They face great opposition. They go to the Word. They stand on the promises. It looks like failure and defeat are imminent. Then, the enemies plan collapses and they are victorious! The Word works! 

What are you facing today? You may be facing the greatest attack of your life, but I encourage you to stand! The enemy is seeking whom he may devour, but the one who is fully equipped with the armor of God and is standing on God’s Word will not fail! The enemy may be telling you that your defeat is inevitable, but the truth is that your victory is ensured! 1 Corinthians 15:57 says, “But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

When you’ve done all you know to do, STAND! Victory belongs to you in Christ Jesus!
