Memory Verse

“‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty”

Audio Icon   Zechariah 4:6b



In today’s episode, Spike thinks he can solve the problem of the islanders’ beliefs and the disappearing building supplies with his own strength. But in Zechariah 4:6, God says we should rely on his Spirit to help us fight our battles.

Have you ever heard of spiritual warfare? In Ephesians 6:12, Paul writes to his friends, the Ephesians. He says “We are not fighting against humans. We are fighting against forces and authorities and against rulers of darkness and powers in the spiritual world.” How can we possibly resist powers that fight against us in a war that we cannot see?

There is a spiritual war going on around us right now. But we are never on our own in this battle. We can tap into God’s strength, his power, and his protection at any time through prayer. God is stronger than Satan! If God is fighting for us, there is nothing that Satan and his forces can do to win!


Did you know God gives us protection and weapons to fight spiritual battles? Ephesians 6:13-17 introduces the Armor of God:

Belt of Truth

Breastplate of Righteousness

Shoes of Peace

Shield of Faith

Helmet of Salvation

Sword of the Spirit (the Bible)

Draw a picture of yourself wearing this armor. Label all the parts. Keep it by your bed to remind you to “put on” the armor every morning. God is on your side!
