“Who can defeat omnipotence?” Nobody can defeat Almighty God! With this in mind, we are exhorted to fight our flesh, the Satan, and this world with the power that is supplied by God. The Lord has exhorted us to put on the full armor of God.
(Ephesians 6:10-11 NKJV) “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. (11) Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
(Ephesians 6:14-17 NKJV) “Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, (15) and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; (16) above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. (17) And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;”
The power supplied to fight comes from our omnipotent God. Our dependence is demonstrated as we gird ourselves with the truth of God’s Word; put the breastplate of Christ’s righteousness over us that we may find ourselves clothed in perfect righteousness; our feet are shod with the gospel of peace…the peace that God has made for us through the cross; the shield of faith is our trust in Him to quench the fiery darts of the wicked one; the helmet of salvation covers our heads as we look to the work of Christ on the cross; and we have God’s Word to be that sword of defense.
May we depend upon Christ today to fight sin…for “Who can defeat omnipotence?”
As we pray this evening, we have many reasons to call upon our Lord as our “Good Master.” His goodness cannot be improved upon. We have found Him to be perfect in His goodness, grace, and kindness to us. He is also our Master. We are to follow Him as Lord and submit to His Lordship every day. To call Him “Good Master” is to remind us of His goodness and His Lordship over us. May we joyfully find ourselves today in the perfect will of our “Good Master.”
