Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked (Ephesians 6:16).
Pastor Anita says
With faith, there’s no such thing as "I tried, but it didn’t work, so I gave up!" Faith never gives up. The phrase "above all" as used in the opening verse puts faith at the forefront of the armour of God you’re to put on. Therefore, if there’s anything you shouldn’t give up, it’s your faith. Hebrews 11:6 states quite clearly, "Without faith, it’s impossible to please God."
When your faith is tested and tried; stretched to its limits; you must remain undaunted and stand your ground in the Word. You must resist the devil and enforce your victory. Having done all that the Word says, you must stand firmly in your place of triumph because Christ Jesus has already won the victory for you. Proverbs 24:10 says, "If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength
Take out your shield of faith!
Express your faith in words and actions;
rebuke the pain and refuse to let it dictate your behaviour.
Use your faith-inspired confessions to disassemble all the fiery missiles of the adversary, and remain standing!
Isaiah 54:17 says, no weapon fashioned against you shall prosper; therefore refuse to fear or be intimidated.
f u r t h e r s t u d y: Hebrews 11:6; James 4:
Glory to God!!! My Faith is undaunted, I stand firm on the Word of God!!! I can not faint, it is impossible for me to faint in the day of adversity. Have you not known, have you not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, does not faint or grow weary, there is no searching of His Understanding!....but those who wait upon the Lord(who expect, look for and hope in Him) shall change and renew their strength and power;they shall lift their wngs and mount up as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired!
