THE SHIELD OF FAITH

AB2This morning I want to thank God for the life we have lived and as we look into the overflow of another day we say thank You Lord for bringing us out into this marvelous light. Heavenly Father we are yours this morning and are very grateful for all that You haven us to meet our daily needs. O, how I thank You for Your saving Grace and mercy. I know how guilty I am standing in need of Your forgiveness. Thank you Lord and have mercy on me this morning.
 

Bring me all your feelings, even the ones you wish you didn’t have. Fear and anxiety still plague you. Feelings per se are not sinful, but they can be temptations to sin. Blazing missiles of fear fly at you day and night; these attacks from the evil one come at you relentlessly. Use your shield of faith to extinguish those flaming arrows. Affirm your trust in Me, regardless of how you feel. If you persist, your feelings will eventually fall in line with your faith.

Do not hide from your fear or pretend it isn’t there. Anxiety that you hide in the recesses of your heart will give birth to fear of fear: a monstrous mutation. Bring your anxieties out into the Light of My Presence, where we can deal with them together. Concentrate on trusting Me, and fearfulness will gradually lose its foothold within you. This is what God intends for us today. Cast out all your fears by trusting God at His word.

In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. —Ephesians 6:16

This is the message we have heard from Him and declare to you: My brothers and sisters in the Lord and this Mystical Order hear these words, God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with Him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin. 1 John 1:5–7

 
I want to encourage you today to forget who you are, for we are nothing in the sight of God. Until we are willing to surrender to His will and say “Here am I send me” we are going nowhere. Can we be like Isaiah as he declared: Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord, is my strength and my song; He has become my salvation. Isaiah 12:2


The Lord gave us the Armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18) for a reason — so we would use it! Instead of being crippled in fear, we can raise our shield of faith and fend off the enemy’s attacks against us. What are you afraid of today? God longs to be your strength and your song.

Your servant and brother,
