Scripture for the First Monday in Advent

Ephesians 6:11-12

Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Our Heavenly Father, the Bible tells us that our struggles are against the enemy of our soul and spiritual forces of evil. We come to You today asking that You bind, dismiss, and contend with the enemy who contends with us. The enemy takes our focus from You. He fills us with doubts and discouragement. He tells us that we deserve to enjoy ourselves and to experience the pleasures of this world rather than serving You. Turn the enemy from us, O Lord, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
