Paul tells them be strong, to rely on the power of the Lord's might (strength) and his words of advice can clearly be used by us today during times of duress or when we feel weak or troubled.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Eph. 6:10
Paul tells the Jews and Gentile to put on the Armor of God so that they will be strong enough to withstand the sneaky ways of the devil. You can use this same armour today to protect yourself and your loved ones.

It is not people made of flesh and blood we must fight but it is spiritual warfare which we must fight against, powers that come from the ruler's of darkness (evil).
