10Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Ephesians 6:10-12 KJV)
Here it is said to be strong in the Lord because there are evils out there that we as minions can not see. Have faith in the Lord, our unseen God, for He will fight the unseen evil/devil. Don’t have a doubt or think that maybe evil can be defeated. It can and will be. There is a lot of evil out there and we are incapable of surmounting the force necessary to get the job done. No way, shape or form. Remember the saying and song-”Let God”.
There are more than enough that we can see. Evil is everywhere and so is the Lord. There is ISIS, Russia, China and N. Korea, just to name a few of the many. However, what force can be wield that God can’t subdue it. It can not and will not if there is doubt and non-belief. We as people can not do it alone neither can we do it together. Let God.
The countries can be seen. The people of these countries can be seen. Even the rulers of these countries can be seen. But, the rulers of the evilness, who pulls the puppet strings, can not be seen. It is the devil and he is always working, planning and conjoining as many forces as can be to staunch the well being of any and all societies. That is even at the local community level.
It can be thought about in this manner. Things are fine and everyone in the community is having a great time without a care in the world. Suddenly there is hate and discontent. Uneasiness and restlessness. Nerves are frazzled and suspicions run wild. Tranquility is gone and upheaval is everywhere. The devil is near and, through his disciples, is working hard. He also have his spies all over, seeing and telling everything, not knowing their souls will remain in hell forever. Remember, it is called “wickedness in high places”. Let God.
Let us clean out the minions of hell and then “Let God” take care of the unseen and we will survive the hell on earth in our community. A smiling face and a strong hand shake does not wipe the slate clean. Only doing right and being just will help, along with a strong dose of believing in God and doing what He wants. Let God.
19And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. (Ephesians 6:19-20 KJV) LET GOD!!!
