Our enemy is formidable, but our God is greater. And, in our humanity, we are without strength except that which is drawn from The Holy Spirit.
Therefore, we must be on alert and perpetually don the whole armor of God, as it is designed for Christians to wear at all times. We must pray without ceasing, be courageous, stand firm in faith...and be strong in the power of The LORD’s might.
1 Peter 1:13
Therefore prepare your minds for action. Be sober-minded. Set your hope fully on the grace to be given you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
1 Peter 5:8
Be sober-minded and alert. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
1 Thessalonians 5:8
But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and the helmet of our hope of salvation.
Therefore take up the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you will be able to stand your ground, and having done everything, to stand.
Stand firm then, with the belt of truth fastened around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness arrayed...
1 Corinthians 16:13
Be on the alert. Stand firm in the faith. Be men of courage. Be strong.
2 Timothy 2:1
You therefore, my child, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
Be dressed for service and keep your lamps burning.
