God’s word – Your faith

Eph 6:16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.

Let’s look at the wicked one’s weapon for just a moment – fiery darts.
It’s not enough that it’s a dart, which can pierce anywhere on your body, it’s also on fire to inflict more pain and damage.
The wicked one really does not like you but then he is a murderer from the beginning.
A dart is meant to damage the inside and the fire is meant to damage the outside.
You have coverage for your chest, feet, and head but that leaves some exposure to your arms and legs.
With the shield of faith, you can protect the unprotected.
And what is the shield of faith?
It is written that faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Rom 10:17
Once again the shield is the word of God.
You know have the word of God covering your waist, heart, feet, and the unprotected.
I’ll finish up the armor of God next time.
Just this reminder to read God’s word every day and keep yourself encouraged and protected against the enemy of your soul.
