Prepare for War!

Our son, Jacob, loves playing with army men.  He comes by it naturally because his daddy did, too, when he was a little boy. Today Jacob lined all of his army men up on the top of his bunk bed. 
He also placed them all over his and his brother's room.  The little green army men were everywhere....waiting for the enemy to attack.  The plastic soldiers have their weapons and are ready to defend themselves from every angle.
As I watched Jacob line up his men and saw how he strategically posed them as though they were really getting ready for a war, I thought about our lives as Christians.  We have an enemy and his name is Satan.  Satan can attack us in many different ways. He actively looks for ways to attack us.  (1 Peter 5:8)
We must be prepared for battle to win the war against Satan.  But, we don't have to go it alone.  We have the armor of God (Ephesians 14-18) to help us fight....and to win!  With God on our side, we can shout out the battle cry:  "Prepare for war, Satan!  We're ready to fight!"
"Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand." 
Ephesians 6:13
