“In All Things Stand Perfect” ( Ephesians 6:12-13 WYC ) by Carley Evans

Images abound of the ‘armour of God’ we are to put on and take up —  Paul envisions helmet, breastplate, shield, shin guards, and sword as if we are soldiers standing in battle.

“For why striving is not to us against flesh and blood [For striving, or battle, is not to us against flesh and blood], but against [the] princes and potentates, against governors of the world of these darknesses, against spiritual things of wickedness, in heavenly things. Therefore take ye the armour of God, that ye be able to against-stand in the evil day; and in all things stand perfect.”

We are to “against-stand in the evil day; and in all things stand perfect.”

Notice against what we are to stand — not “against flesh and blood.” Rather our battle is against “spiritual things of wickedness, in heavenly things.” And what is “the armour of God” that makes you “able to against-stand in the evil day?”

The most readily available piece of armour we own is the Word — the Word indwelling, the Word written. With the Word of God, we “in all things stand perfect.”
