“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.
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
