Wield the armor of your faith.

The devil is constantly scheming against you. He wants you to fail, to fall out of faith, and to turn away from God. He isn’t making grand, elaborate plans, but using small, intricate moments in your daily life: anxiety, frustration, bone-deep exhaustion, weariness, and temptation. But God gives you His tools to fight back. Explore God’s strategies and biblical examples from Ephesians 6 for how to confront daily hardship with Rev. Christopher Kennedy.
