Above All Taking The Shield Of Faith
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
The key word one is , “above all”
Above all means, despite all, or after all, taking the shield of faith.
Please do you know what?
If you check all the armor, is Christ.
Christ is our Righteousness which is the breastplate
Christ is the peace which is the shod we wear and preach
Christ is the Truth as the belt
Christ Jesus is the faith as He is the Shield and buckle
Christ Jesus is our salvation which is the helmet
Dear ones, all the weapons are Christ, if you gain Him, you gain access to the Father through the Spirit.
So above getting all the other weapons, you shouldn’t forget to be taking the shield of Faith.
Above all the prayers, preaching, singing of the gospel, righteousness, holiness, peace and salvation, get the faith.
Another Key word was, “taking up”
Which means, is not once, or one-day , but all days be “taking up” the shield of faith.
What is faith at all?
Faith is in general the persuasion of the mind that a certain statement is true (Phil. 1:27; 2 Thess. 2:13). Its primary idea is trust. A thing is true, and therefore worthy of trust. It admits of many degrees up to full assurance of faith, in accordance with the evidence on which it rests.
Please I took the definition from the Easton Bible Dictionary
How can you gain faith?
Bible says, “faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God”
And the word of God is telling us to take it continuously.
Not a day , not in a minute but everyday, every time.
So you have to take the faith in the morning before you go out , you have to take the faith before you sleep , you have to take the faith before you take the
That is the word of God which is the truth and undiluted.
Overcoming The Fiery
Darts Of The Wicked
wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
Before you can overcome the enemy or the storms of life,
1. You have to gain faith through the word of God
2. You have to proclaim
Proclaim the word of God over everything that you see.
We walk with the word of God but not with our sight or feelings.
“Faith compares what eyes has seen and ears had heard and make positive declaration over any negativity”
So if you take up the shield of faith in the morning before you go out, anything that you see which goes contrary to the word of God, you just use the faith and command or proclaim with the name of Jesus Christ.
When you hear bad news, you can say “in the name of Jesus Christ ……….” for making the declarations.
Without the word of God you can never activate the faith you are having.
But with the word of God through prayer, you have to take the shield of faith, when you are talking to someone, you have to take the shield of faith, when you are passing through persecution, you have to take the shield of faith.
Take it in the morning, take it in the afternoon , take it in the evening take it wherever you go.
Let the word of God be with you and make positive declarations.
In Jesus name, I am great, in Jesus name I can make it, in Jesus name I am more than a conquerer, in Jesus name I will not fall, in Jesus name I will not fail, in Jesus name greater things will I see.
Wherever you are please be taking the shield of faith in prayers.
In your dormitory, take it
At your office take
At your home, take it .
In Jesus name you can make it.
God bless you in Jesus name
