Shield of Faith

22 04 2015



We now go to Ephesians 6:16 – The Shield of Faith. Take up

the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the

flaming arrows of the evil one. Let’s begin with faith. What is

faith? Hebrews 11:1 says that faith is the substance of things

hoped for. In my words, faith is believing and expecting God

to come through.

Next, who is the enemy? We have talked about this before.

The enemy is satan and his domain. You accept Jesus, he

goes to war against you. He is not happy that he lost you. He

will be throwing things in your way. That’s why you need

that shield of faith. Your faith in God. Expecting God to come

through every time. Don’t waver. Don’t let doubt come in.

Sometimes He comes through in ways you never expected. I

think that sometimes He laughs when He surprises us in

how He comes through. But, the thing here is to keep that

shield up. Keep your faith up. When those thoughts come in,

say God is going to come through. I believe Him. You can’t

have me, satan! Another thing when you can’t think of

anything else to say when he’s throwing dart after dart at

you…JESUS! Believe me, that works! So let’s go out with our

shields in place.
