“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.”
What does it look like to~ Be prepared for anything? ~ Be strong in the Lord?
How do we build strength in the Lord? The strength Paul is referring to in Ephesians 6:10-11 is developed through building our relationship with the Lord. We are strengthened through gaining knowledge of who the Lord is, living in relationship with him per his design, and recognizing and trusting his unmeasurable power and the protection he provides. Paul shares these power building principles with us in his description of the Armor of God: the Belt of Truth, Breastplate of Righteousness, Shoes of the Gospel of Peace, Shield of Faith, Helmet of Salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit. Each piece of the Armor of God represents us living strong in the Lord and his mighty power.
How is your power level?
