Fortunately, we do not have to wrestle against the powers of the world on our own. Scripture tells us to put on the armor of God, and “then after the battle, you will still be standing firm” (Ephesians 6:13). Don’t take on any battle unprepared, when you can cloak yourself with the armor promised by God. Tackling problems with only your own power is not only unnecessary, but foolish. Consider taking God with you on any journey.
