In Christianity, faith is our lifestyle. 2 Corinthians 5:7 says, “(For we walk by faith, not by sight).” Hebrews 11:6 says, “But without faith it is impossible to please him….”
Thus, when the scripture says to take up the shield of faith, it doesn’t mean there’s a particular spiritual shield called faith. Rather, it means your faith is a shield. With your faith, you’ll be able to neutralize or put out all the fiery darts of the wicked one. There’re fiery missiles directed at you, and they’re coming from demoniacal forces, but with your faith, you can put them out.
Discouragement and anger, for instance, are missiles of the enemy. Some people could be by themselves and suddenly have anger and discouragement well up within them. Some suddenly feel something like a hard object hit them from the side, yet there was no physical object or person present; that’s a fiery dart of the enemy. For some others, it comes as a sharp pain that never goes away.
But thanks be unto God! These missiles or darts from the enemy are no match for your shield of faith. The Bible says, “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world” (1 John 4:4). 1 John 5:4 says, “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.”
Can you see that your faith is what you need? Faith in God’s Word puts you permanently over and above Satan and the circumstances of life. We’re not helpless as God’s people, neither are we vulnerable to the wiles of the enemy. It’s the reason we can count it all joy when we go through diverse tests: we have what it takes to go through the fire and not be burnt, and go through the waters and not drown. You have everything you require to be a success and win at all times.
Refuse to give up, no matter what happens. Stand your ground on God’s Word, and your victory will be as sure as the Word of God is.
