Satan would love to weaken our 

efforts to pursue God.

Let us observe how Jesus employed 

the Word of God to counter the devil. 

Let us also find strength in the 

sufficiency of God. Let us depend on a

humble and personal walk with God to 

overcome challenges, obstacles, and 

the evil one... as opposed to being self-

righteous and externally 

displaying a feast to the ego... 

never good.

The Scriptures are very clear on the 

existence of spiritual warfare.

"Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on all

of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm 

against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting 

against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers 

and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty 

powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the 

heavenly places." 

Ephesians 6:10-12

The best way to expose Satan and 

his lies... is to know the Truth. When 

we know the truth... we will know

 what is false. 

If we are not relying on God's truth, 

we can easily blunder.

It is important that we do not become

 haughty or arrogant with human pride.

 We are powerless... without God. 

In our own strength and power, we 

have no chance of defeating the 

“spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly

 realms.”  Only the “Full Armor of 

God” will equip us to 

withstand spiritual attacks. 

We can only be strong in God’s power 

and authority; it is God’s Armor that 

protects us.

For though we live in the world, we 

are not of the world. We do not wage 

war as the world does. We use God's 

mighty weapons, not worldly weapons.

The weapons we fight with are not 

the weapons of the world. 

On the contrary, they have divine 

power to demolish strongholds! 

2 Corinthians 10:4

Our battle is against spiritual forces of 

evil in the world.

The armor of God is described in Ephesians 6:10-18.

 In this passage we are told that our primary battles are of 

a spiritual nature and that we need spiritual armor to be 

able to stand firm in the midst of these battles. 

How we begin our day is key towards 

overcoming the daily battles that we 

will inevitably face.

A soldier is only ready for battle when he is girded with 

his belt. To be fitted with our belt, means we are ready to 

face the day.

Truth is the belt that holds the armor stable. Our Highest

Truth can be found in God’s Word, in the person of Jesus 

Christ. (John 14:6) We must know this Truth in order to 

protect ourselves against our flesh, the world, and the 

Father of Lies. Truth grounds us and calls our attention to 

our identity in Christ.

Our breastplate is God's righteousness. God's 

righteousness will never fail. Being rooted and grounded 

in God’s Word is powerful protection for our hearts. 

Our sandals with the Gospel of Peace are a firm 

foundation. With our shoes of peace we are able to go and 

share our testimonies with others. The way we walk 

through life will be seen by many. When we carry 

ourselves with the fruit of the spirit, people will want to

know more about the God we serve.

We must Spiritually dress for success 

by putting the Spiritual Armor of God 

on, daily.

We must put on the full armor of God so that we are able 

to stand against the schemes of Satan and fight for the 

truth of God. 

Ephesians 6:10-20

Put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil 

comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after 

you have done everything, to stand.

Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your 

waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and 

with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from 

the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the

shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the 

flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of 

salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of 


Our primary battles are of a spiritual 

nature and we need Spiritual Armor to 

be able to stand firm in the midst of 

these battles.


The thief enters only to steal, kill, and destroy.

Who exactly is Satan?

 He is the one in Scripture who is called the “Evil one.” 

Satan is also called the devil, who possesses abhorrent 

qualities. He is referred to in Scripture as the accuser, the

 slanderer, the adversary, the enemy, the father of lies, the 

murderer, the wicked one, and the deceiver who leads 

humanity astray by seducing humanity into the ways of 

lies and sin.

Satan is also described as a malicious, hostile, 

evil-intentioned, evil-minded, venomous, vindictive,  

accuser and adversary who is opposed to God and man.

The Scriptures describe Satan as one who exists in the 

invisible spirit realm. 

Job 1:6

Paul says in Ephesians, 

“Our struggle is not against flesh and 

blood, but against the rulers, against 

the powers, against the world forces of 

this darkness, against the spiritual 

forces of wickedness in the heavenly 


When engaged in spiritual warfare 

we must walk, live, and share truth, 

live righteously, proclaim the gospel 

of peace, taking up the shield of faith, 

wearing salvation as a helmet, 

and equipping ourselves with God’s 

Word as our sword.

Spiritual warfare is a very real part of 

life, but should not be an opportunity 

for either fear or pride. Instead, the 

reality of Satan and his evil forces 

should cause us to draw nearer to 


Spiritual warfare is not about a

 technique to defeat Satan or his

 demons, but is all about having a

 heart that walks closely with God. 

When God is first and foremost in 

our lives... Satan lacks power over us.
