Armor of God: Shield of Faith

"In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one." Ephesians 6:16

When it comes to protection in battles, a shield is one of the most important assets to use. In the verse above, we read that we should make sure to have our shields in all circumstances. That means no matter what type of battle or enemy, we should always have our shields.  Shields come in many shapes and sizes, but we are told to take up the shield of faith.

Faith is the strong belief in God and in His truth over our lives. To put up the shield of faith in our lives means to believe God's truth in specific situations. The enemy will send flaming arrows of temptation and lies to cause us to stumble. As long as we can speak truth to those lies and have faith through times of temptation, we will remain safe.

Are there areas in your life you feel that the enemy is trying to make you believe lies or tempt you into doing things you know are wrong? What can you do to grow in your faith?

Glide on!
