Shield of faith as part of the full armor of God – Spiritual warfare.
In every situation take the shield of faith, and with it you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
Faith, Jesus once said even the size of a mustard seed can move a mulberry tree and I strongly believe this.
6 “If you have faith the size of a mustard seed,” the Lord said, “you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.
Apostle Paul also wrote that without Faith, we cannot please God:
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
The devil is always throwing darts and arrows at believers. In fact, that is why the verse in Ephesians 6:16 says you need to have your shield of faith in every situation.
You can never ever leave your shield of Faith behind. Never!
Doesn’t matter what situation of life you find yourself in.
Good, bad, sad, happy, sick, healthy, rich, poor.
In every situation, you have to have your shield of Faith.
The devil found Job in a rich, happy state when he started attacking him and he didn’t stop there. He carried on throwing flaming arrows at him even after he had lost everything.
However tough the situation you find yourself in, however dire the circumstances, however tempting to throw your hands in the air and start calling God a liar and feeling like quitting, I urge you, I beseech you to never lose your faith.
Because the moment you lose your Faith in Jesus, you have lost the battle and war.
See, it’s Jesus who gives us victory during this war. Yes, we are soldiers but he is the commander in chief.
We take directions from him. He leads and we follow.
So, if you lose faith in your commander in chief, you have inadvertently surrendered to the enemy and joined the other camp.
See, in this spiritual battle, there are only two sides.
Good and Evil. God and the Devil. There is no middle ground.
You either have full trust and Faith in Jesus or you don’t have Faith in him. There is no gray, murky shady area.
I pray you take your faith seriously.
I pray you always have your shield with you.
So that when the devil comes with lies, slander, gossip, accusations, sickness, poverty, loss, grief, betrayal etc, you can quench and extinguish all his arrows so that nothing happens to you and you grow stronger in your faith and move from glory to glory.
Let's Live Victoriously In Jesus
