Topic :THE PRACTICAL APPLICATION
Every Christian must study the Word of God and learn to resist his enemy for himself.
The way to do this is through prayer and faith. We must say what the Word of God says. First Peter 5:7–8 says, “…casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your
adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”
Resist the Devil!
“Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil” (Ephesians 6:11).
Know Your Enemy!
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of
wickedness in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12).
“Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may
be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all,
to stand” (Ephesians 6:13).
Know Who You Are in Christ!
“Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth,
having put on the breastplate ofrighteousness”
CASTING ALL YOUR CARE UPON HIM,
FOR HE CARES FOR YOU.
BE SOBER, BE VIGILANT.
“And having shod your feet with the preparation of the
gospel of peace” (Ephesians 6:15).
Do Not Give Up!
“Above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will
be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one”
Speak the Word!
“And take the helmet ofsalvation, and the sword of the
Spirit, which is the word of God” (Ephesians 6:17).
“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the
Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints” (Ephesians 6:18).
GOD WANTS US TO RULE AND REIGN
over Satan in this life through
PRAYER AND FAITH.
