Ephesians 6:13
"Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm." ESV 
When we are struggling with a temptation or heavy trial in our lives, we sometimes say God is really testing us through this. God does not test us nor does he tempt or wrestle with us. The truth is, we are wrestling with the evil forces of Satan. Our Lord emphasizes that we need to put on and keep on His armor so that we can stand strong and overcome these evil forces. It is our choice to keep the Armor of God firmly on, or to let ourselves get spiritually sloppy and find ourselves wrestling a losing battle to the enemy. Our gracious God have given us all we need to overcome, even the choice to use what He has given us.
Lord, forgive us for getting so caught up in our own earthly lives that we fail to even recognize we have only part of Your armor on. You have shown us these are truly the last days. Give us zeal for being prepared and for being witnesses of Truth. In Your name we pray, Amen.
