Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. -Ephesians 6:11 NASB
To stand up to the Devil and fight against him in the battlefield, we have to be equipped with the full armor of God. The full armor of God simply means to fight with God’s strength. Satan is very tactical. The word “schemes” in Greek is “methodiah”, it is where we get the word “method”.
The demonic forces who have been assigned to you have a method, a plan that they have concocted that fits your personality. It is the best way that they have to defeat you. We are doomed apart from God, but with the Lord, the opposite is true—the Devil’s plan will not have any effect or succeed in making us fall—God’s armor will deflect it.
