Our Spiritual armour is an awesome defence against the wiles of the enemy, and Paul reveals the most important part of it, our shield of faith.
When the enemy strikes with his attempts at lies and deception we immediately have a choice to make.
We have the choice to choose either one thing or another.
We can either believe the lie whispered and the accusation made against us, or we can believe what God has already said about us and declared to be the truth about us.
When we choose to believe God’s Word over every other thing, and exalt His opinion of us over any other accusation, our choice is like a shield defending the soldier from all the arrows of his enemy.
And our faith does even more than just shield; it takes all the fire out of the enemy’s attack!
When we stand firm in the truth of who we are and all that we have in Christ any wiles and schemes designed to bring us down will be easily extinguished on that powerful shield.
Again, this is all about knowledge.
We need to know the truth of your righteousness because of the Gospel, put this knowledge above every other fact, and be determined to stand on those facts.
That is what Paul is describing as the shield of faith and it will deal with ALL the fiery darts of the wicked.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for the arrow deflecting, fire quenching power of faith. Thank you that my knowledge of the facts about my position in Christ is a mighty shield”.
Ephesians 6 v 16…Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked
