October 6th 2015 – Spirtual Warfare – Shield of Faith

images-236

“above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.” (Ephesians 6:16)

Our next piece of the armor of God is our shield of faith.  This is such an important piece of armor that we need each and every day.  You see the enemy is coming at us with fiery darts, and if we don’t have our shield held up, they will get through and can cause problems in our lives.

So what is this shield?  The shield that God wants us to have each day is our strong faith.  We see from the Word of God that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17).  Our faith is such a major part of our Christian life.  Over and over we see in the gospels that Jesus said it was faith that brought forth miracles. 

And now that we see where faith comes from, we need to be in the Word and keeping our shield held high with the power of God.  When the enemy comes against us with thought bombs like “you’re no good”,”nobody loves you”, you can hold your shield up high and say that, greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.  When a thought bomb comes at you that says “God doesn’t accept you”, you can come right back with your shield lifted high and state that you are accepted in the Beloved.

When sickness comes against you, again you can hold your shield up high and quench that fiery dart of the enemy and state that by the stripes of Jesus you are healed.  This is why it is so important to get the Word of God in us.  Your shield that comes through faith, comes by the Word of God.

So today, go ahead and get your shield out.  Make sure it is ready for battle by putting God’s Word on.  Go ahead say it.  Confess it over yourself and watch those fiery darts go out as they hit your shield.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, with your strengh and mighty powerful word, I have the shield of faith and it quenches all of the fiery darts of the wicked one.  Today, I will keep my faith sharp by reading the Word of God. Please continue to walk with me and guide me Lord. We love you. In your precious name Amen

    I really like the verbiage here…
    “Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.”

    (James 1:5-6, NIV)
    If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.

    YOU SURE SET THE TONE FOR MY DAY… Most everyday I read your devotional, other sources stem off the same subject.

    I just read this…

    “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

    “Ephesians 6:10-12

    These verses make it very clear that we’re in a battle—and those who don’t believe it are destined to lose!

    However, the battle is between your ears! It’s not out there somewhere in the “heavenly places.” It’s in your mind.”
