Ephesians 6:10-12 (JDV)

Ephesians 6:10 Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by his vast strength.

Ephesians 6:11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the schemes of the devil.

Ephesians 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the priorities, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this darkness, against evil, spiritual forces in the sky realms.

we don’t got this

Paul had been calling on the Ephesian believers to practice mutual submission in their interpersonal relationships, and it is in this context that he encourages them to get their strength from the Lord.

When it comes to interpersonal relationships, many of us have an “I’ve got this” attitude. Well, that’s just stupid. We don’t got this, and that’s why we need the Lord’s help. There is an army of demonic beings which seeks to undermine our relationships with each other. We might think we can handle simple relationships, but that is just why the army will concentrate its efforts there. If Satan can destroy my relationship with my wife and children, coworkers and employers or employees, he can render me ineffective. God’s armor is my protection against his attacks.

Lord, keep us from the “I’ve got this” attitude. Empower us.
