Day 19 – Saturday, October 19

Read … Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. 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 firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints. Ephesians 6:10-18

Remember I praise You today, God, for Your strength, Your mighty power, and Your armor. You are truth. You are righteous. You are peace. You are faithful. You are my salvation. No one is like You – worthy of all worship and praise.

Reflect Thank You for the vastness of who You are. Thank You for increasing my strength and power as I come to You. Thank You for making me righteous through the blood of Your Son, Jesus. Thank You for Your abundant peace, Your faithfulness that has no end, and for Your salvation.


Renew Lord, as I face today, I ask for You to put Your armor on me. I know my battle is not against people, but against a common enemy – the evil one. Help me remember that and enable me to use Your armor to fight against the devil’s schemes to destroy, deflate and derail the work You have for me personally and for Your church. Cause me to stand firm in You and pray continually as I go about my day. In Jesus’ name, amen.


When a Christian shuns fellowship with other Christians, the devil smiles.

When he stops studying the Bible, the devil laughs.

When he stops praying, the devil shouts for joy.
