THE SHIELD OF FAITH
MAIN TEXT: Ephesians 6:16
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
1 John 5:4—For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
According to the oxford advanced learners dictionary, a shield means a person or thing used to protect, especially by forming a barrier. Having the shield of faith simply means to make faith your banner, which will serve as protection for the life you live each day.
Dear reader, what kind of faith do you have? Are you fulfilling the scripture in Romans 1:17 which says, “the just shall live by faith”? Faith is an essential part of your life? Are you feeding your faith, or do you watch it wither away each passing day? Like the soldiers in the past, carrying a shield made of wood is as good as putting your life on the line, but the one who carriers a shield made of metal that has been beaten by passing it through the fire is more secured.
When you are a person of faith, attacks are stopped by faith and they won’t hurt you. Build your shield of faith by receiving more word of God every moment and hearing edifying testimonies of Christians. We have to pick up our shield of faith wherever we might have dropped it. We cannot walk victoriously without the shield of faith.
FAITH IN GOD IN EVERY SEASON MAKES YOU A VICTOR
PRAYER: In Jesus’ name, Father, increase my faith. I receive the gift of faith by the Holy Spirit. Amen.
