PUT ON THE SHIELD OF FAITH 1



It has been an exciting discussion and there are rich depths we are gleaning from the scriptures, concerning the Armor of God

Do you know this: Some few weeks from now, there is going to be Machaira Episode 500?

We have done more than 400 Episodes of inspiring and transformational writings. If this is your first time here, click here to feast on numerous topics I have treated. And you can click here as well to read on the Armor of God.

We have already looked at the Belt of Truth, The Breastplate of Righteousness and The Feet Shod with the Preparation of the Gospel.

Today, we look into the fourth item or military gear Apostle Paul mentioned — THE SHIELD OF FAITH.

“Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
“Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.” Ephesians 6:13-16 (KJV)

Through the death and resurrection of Jesus, the Lord defeated the devil and made a public spectacle of him (Colossians 2:15). This victory of the Lord is available for men. Yet not all men have a share in this victory. It is only those who have received the Lord Jesus, shares in His victory legally. Those who have not received the Lord are under the deception and control of demonic forces, principalities and powers who rule in darkness. The devil and his cohorts have no legal aid to condemn, oppress or subdue those who are saved in Christ. However, through the deceptive schemes of the devil, many believers are oppressed by darkness.

Though the adversary was defeated, he still wages war with the saints.

The adversary is at war to:

1. Prevent the saints from labouring through the gospel to save the people of the world from darkness to light.

2. Distract the believers or the saints from living and enjoying their inheritance in Christ Jesus.

3. Prevent the believers or saints from being part of the accomplishment of the ultimate plan and purpose of God.

No believer must give room for the schemes of the adversary to prevail. This is why the Lord has supplied every believer with His armor. The armor we are to put on as believers in Christ, is not our self-generated armor. It is God’s own armor!

In this Spiritual warfare, the cohorts of the devil, are busily and relentlessly throwing missiles at the saints. But as a saint or believer in Christ, you have the SHIELD OF FAITH as your defensive armor.

These flaming missiles or fiery darts of the wicked, are things which are not consistent with the knowledge and character of Christ.

They are things which distract you, oppress you, depress you and weaken you.

The adversary is called the wicked one, he has nothing for you which is good.

Take a stand as a good soldier in Christ and take up the shield of faith to quench every attack of the wicked one.

It is not the Lord who will take up the shield of faith for you.

The Lord has made provision of His own armor for your use. It is now your responsibility to take the shield of faith.

Hallelujah!

DIG DEEPER
(Genesis 15:1; Psalm 91:7-16; Psalm 94:22; Exodus 15:2-3; Psalm 28:7-8)
 
WE PRAY
We pray that we shall have the courage to stand strong in the Lord and take up the shield of faith to extinguish every flaming arrows of the evil one.
 
BIBLE READING IN THE YEAR 2024
2 Chronicles 31 – 33
 
DECLARE THESE WORDS:
– I take up the shield of faith.
 
– I stand strong in the Lord.
 
– By the shield of faith, today I extinguish every flaming arrow of the evil one and his cohorts against my life.
 
I walk in the consciousness of faith every day.
 
Oh thank you Lord Jesus!!!

[1] After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram, *I am your shield* ; Your reward [for obedience] shall be very great.”

God Himself is my shield ❤‍????❤‍????
No wonder He is the one who provides with weapons (His armor) in this ongoing warfare

I put on the armor of God????????????
1.  The Belt of Truth

2.The Breastplate of righteousness

3.Shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace

Indeed, even though God provides you with the shield of faith, you are to put it on and enforce it yourself.

*Never Again*!!!! Will I allow the adversary throw these flaming missiles or fiery darts at me , (things which are not consistent with the knowledge and character of Christ.)

I put on the shield of faith

If it is not God who is to take up the shield for man then that means man has been granted the ability to carry the shield so If he refuses God cannot do anything no matter how you call on him

And it is by only this shield of Faith the fiery darts of the enemies are quenched
So no matter how much you see the council of men you cannot be satisfied unless you take up what has been put at your disposal by God
