Your Shield Of Faith

One of the tenets of who we are in Christ is our faith.  To be a follower and a believer in Jesus Christ can only happen when we have faith.  A faith that is not seen, but a faith that is built on hope that what God says will be, will be.  For many of us our daily lives are a walk of faith, we do not know what is going to happen or how it is going to happen, but our faith in God tells us that something is going to happen.  It is also that faith that reminds us that we can stand against the trials and tribulations that may come our way.The Scripture reminds us that, in addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil.  I encourage you today to hold up your shield of faith.

Holding up your shield of faith is not easy, and there will be times when your shield will become heavy.  It is when you want to give up and drop your shield of faith, that God will give you the strength to hold it up.  It is when you hold up that shield of faith that it will block every trick, trap, and trial that the devil will try to throw at you.  Hold up your shield of faith and stop every fiery arrow that will attempt to impede your progress.  Hold up your shield of faith, knowing that it is your faith that will open doors for you.  Hold up your shield of faith, knowing that your faith will see you through every situation that you face in your life.  Without faith it is impossible to please God, but with faith you can move mountains.  Do not let your shield down.  I will continue to hold up my shield of faith to stop every fiery arrow that the enemy throws at me.

Since I know my faith will protect and keep me through everything that I may face I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”


Lord give me the strength to hold up my shield of faith, and to be able to stop every trick the enemy tries to throw at me.  In Jesus name Amen.
