THE FIERY DARTS OF THE WICKED 4 — PUT ON THE SHIELD OF FAITH 9



“Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.”

Ephesians 6:16 (KJV)



Don’t take up your shield of faith once in a while or only when you sense an attack of the enemy.

Take up the shield of faith at all times.

The adversary is not backing out on launching his attacks at you.

He doesn’t want to see you fulfill your mandate in the Lord.
He doesn’t want you to be a blessing to your generation.
He doesn’t want to see the shining forth of the light of God in you.

He doesn’t want you to be a city set on a hill. He wants you to be a desolate city.

Apart from launching fiery darts of bitterness, rage and unforgiveness, he also attacks you with arrows of doubts and feelings of discouragement or despair.

The devil chooses his weapons with the cunning skill of a war tactician.

He doesn’t rush his methods. He carefully and patiently chooses his spiritual arsenals.

The adversary knows feelings are inevitable. How you feel what you feel is according to the culturing of your emotions. Your emotions are designed by God to help you to be prompt, to connect and to experience your world.

It is to serve as gauges to help you interpret your experiences. Your emotions are not to serve as a guide but to provide reports of your environment so that you can willingly make inspired decisions.

Your emotions can be educated or nurtured to become instruments of faith.

Though faith is not a feeling, faith can nurture how you feel to help aid you act out God’s word. Your emotions or how you feel, can be according to the deep impressions in your heart. But faith is deeper, richer and stronger than your emotions. Faith is the deepest conviction, consciousness and courage in the word of God.

When your emotions are not nurtured to submit to Faith, they can become familiar spiritual projectiles of the devil.

This is when the feelings of guilt, desperation, anxiety, disappointments, discouragement or despair begin to thrive. These feelings are fearsome arrows against the fulfilment of your calling. These feelings are the mother of suicidal thoughts.

No discouraged heart can make a difference in this world.

Don’t take it lightly, when you feel discouraged at any time towards the good course of the Lord. No matter the reason you have to justify your discouragement, you have to intercept it with faith.

True faith is your ability to remain resolute and firmly rooted in the revelation of God’s word, no matter the negative fleeting spark of emotions.

No matter the darts the enemy will launch at you, know that they can be quenched. You have the shield of faith.

To take up the shield of faith is to exercise confidence in the word of God, rather than in the negative voices of discouragement.

The Psalmist in a discouraged state, did not hold back. He did not allow himself to be overwhelmed by his situation.

He showed us how we have to shake ourselves out of discouraged moments.

“Their wounding words pierce my heart over and over while they say, “Where is this God of yours?” So I say to my soul, “Don’t be discouraged. Don’t be disturbed. For I know my God will break through for me.” Then I’ll have plenty of reasons to praise him all over again. Yes, living before his face is my saving grace!” Psalm 42:10-11 (TPT)

When you live every day with your heart focused on the ability of God, you cannot live in discouragement.

Don’t look at yourself and what you are not able to do. Look more unto Jesus, see His grace and ability. The Lord didn’t start with you to leave you to fail.

Sometimes, it will feel as though you have done so much and nothing seems to work. This sends waves of discouragement through your heart, and makes you chilled to the bone about the future.

Beloved, refuse to be weary and don’t stop being a blessing to others.

See this;

“And don’t allow yourselves to be weary or disheartened in planting good seeds, for the season of reaping the wonderful harvest you’ve planted is coming! Take advantage of every opportunity to be a blessing to others, especially to our brothers and sisters in the family of faith!” Galatians 6:9-10 (TPT)

Put on the Armor of God! Take up the shield of faith.

BE ENCOURAGED BY THE LORD!

DIG DEEPER
(2 Corinthians 1:3-4; 1 Peter 5:7; Joshua 1:9; Isaiah 45:24; Isaiah 41:11)
 
WE PRAY

1. We pray that the Lord, who is the author of our faith, will replenish our joy, strengthen our faith, and keep us strong in Himself, amidst all the winds of discouragement.

2. We pray that our hearts will remain firm in the word and draw waters of encouragement as we live daily to exercise our victory in Christ Jesus.

 
BIBLE READING IN THE YEAR 2024
Esther 4 – 6
 
DECLARE THESE WORDS:
– I take up the shield of faith at all times.
 
– My heart is focused daily on the ability of God.
 
– I do not live in discouragement.
 
– I am a blessing to others.
 
– I have absolute confidence in the word of God.

– I stay my mind and heart on the word of God.

– I refuse to look away from the word.

Thank you Lord Jesus!!!

I shield up always against the fearsome arrows of the adversary.

The way out of fear and discourage is to put on the shield of faith.

I put on always, the shield of faith by CONSISTENTLY exercising my confidence the word of the Lord.

I don’t look at the past failures which can bring voices of discouragements, I look unto Jesus, the author and the finisher of my faith.

He shield up against every weapon of fear and discouragement.

I follow His, example. Always exercising my confidence in what God has said.

That you so much Apostle.
