strengthened by the Lord and by His vast strength. Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the tactics of the Devil. For our battle is not against flesh
and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this
darkness, against the
spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.”
BE STRONG IN THE LORD – BE BATTLE READY!
Here, when God says to be strong and stand (vss 11 &14), it is for a spiritual battle. In vs11 he says to put on God’s armor so you can “stand against the tactics of the devil”.He says very plainly that our battle is now against flesh and blood. So often in life we get stuck here.

spiritual (demonic) rulers, authorities, powers of darkness, forces ofevil . . .-All, like satan, among to kill, steal and destroy you, is at the root of your circumstances. They are
snares, set for your demise, but God works ALL things for our good.
Soooo, stand, in
GOD’S POWER! Use HIS armor! Swing HIS SWORD (WORD OF
GOD). STAND IN THE POWER OF HIS
Think about it!
