Bible Verse for Today
“In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.” (Ephesians 6:16)
The purpose of the shield of faith is to quench all the fiery darts of the Wicked. You may wonder why is it that I need to catch the fiery darts of the wicked? The reason is that those fiery darts are seeds of unbelief.
The devil sends fiery messages to put fear in our hearts. He knows that fear is the opposite of faith and without faith, no man can please God. So, to get us to displease God, He brings the things that scare us so much that we forget the promises of God for us in his word and we begin to live outside his will.
Jesus is not happy when he sees that you allow fear in you. This is why we must hold the shield of faith and stand firm by the power in the name of Jesus against every arrow that’s been fired by the enemy into our lives. There are so many things we face in life and the enemy uses these things to make us have fear in us.
The challenges we face in life and the bad situation that we Face are like arrows that are being fired. You can’t defend these arrows except if you are holding the shield of faith and you can’t get this shield of faith except if you are in Christ Jesus.
