Shield of Faith: Ephesians 6: 16 (NKJV) “above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.”
If you like to watch movies like Braveheart or read historical romance books (avid reader), you may see or imagine shields being penetrated by some strong arrows. If you like to watch modern action films, you may even see some bulletproof vests or car windows being penetrated by some high-powered guns or rifles. However, the shield of faith is impenetrable. I am trusting the shield of faith to always protect me. Yes, the wicked one may know what God may have planned for me and may set traps to derail His plans BUT, as long as I have this piece of armor, I will not fear and His plans for me will not be derailed. This is the source of my confidence and courage. So each day I shall be confident and be courageous, even if it may seem the world or my world is coming to an end (or is filled with chaos and uncertainties), that God’s perfect plans for me will be fulfilled.
