TAKE UP THE SHIELD OF FAITH
As people of God, we have the power to overcome every obstacle in life. We are given godly weapons that are not carnal but holy and righteous unto the Lord. We ought to put on the whole armor of God so that we can stand against the fiery darts of the devil. Never leave home without your armor. Be prepared for battle all the time for Satan is roaring about seeking whom he might devour. In this sixth chapter of Ephesians, we see the armor He has given us. Today, we take the shield of faith as recorded in Ephesians 6:16.
“In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil.”
Taking the shield of faith is crucial in the battle. Faith can be a shield to quench all the flaming darts of the evil one. It is how we combat evil. It is how we deal with sin. It is how we deal with temptation. We put our faith in God knowing that with faith all things are possible. Faith in God means self-surrender. Faith is a gift, in itself. It is the supreme treasure entrusted to the people of God. The shield of faith will protect us. No weapons formed against us shall prosper. When you get a chance, read this entire chapter so that you will be fully armed. We need God’s armor. With it, all things are possible.
