Strength and courage to the soul…

Thomas Manton on Matthew 6:13…

And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one.

We stand against the wiles of Satan, but we must not fight against him with his own weapons, and put off wiles with wiles; sincerity and honest intention, that is our strength; this is the girdle to the loins, it gives strength and courage to the soul.
