Weapon of Faith

When you’re feeling attacked by negative thoughts, when everything seems to be imploding around you, when it feels like stinging words or hurtful actions come at your heart out of nowhere, it’s time to raise your shield of faith.

Raising a shield of faith as part of your readiness for the spiritual battle is a matter of believing the battle is already won.  Fiery arrows of  negative thoughts? Stopped by the knowledge that you are not judged by a God who hates you but One who loves you.  Everything imploding? Stopped by the knowledge that a house of faith, built on the solid rock will withstand any storm!  Stinging words or hurtful actions of other human beings?  Stopped by the knowledge that God will right every wrong, wipe every tear, heal every wound, and restore every heart of those who belong to Him by faith.

God’s full armor will protect you.  You put it on by faith and actively take that shield into your ready stance as you face a troubled world.  Be strong.  You’re well equipped for any battle you face when you have faith in God who fights for you.

Ephesians 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.Weapon of Faith
