-So let’s do it – full of belief, confident that we’re presentable inside and out. Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word.-
(Hebrews 10:22) Message Bible
Once Again, It’s Oldie but a Goodie Friday and Today We are Putting on the Shield of Faith from Our Armor of God series from 2014.
When my kids were smaller, they loved to play video games with their Dad. They played pac-man, racing games, and spaceship games, but their favorite was what we called the ‘fight game.’
In the Summertime, they would sometimes stay up all night ‘fighting.’.
From time to time, they would beg me to come and play along…but I didn’t know what buttons to push. They had been playing so often, that they had memorized the buttons and had even learned special button combinations that gave their fighter
They tried to teach me some of the combinations, but the only button I could remember quickly was the shield button. So when their fighter came against me, with all his/her super- moves and battle combinations…the only way I knew to hold my Ground was to firmly, press my Shield Button until I could build up enough courage to fight back.
Now, of Course We know that the battle that we face..is no game!!
This thing is for real…so God has Armored us with A Real Shield…
The Shield of Faith!!
-Lift up over all the [covering] shield of saving faith, upon which you CAN quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [one].-
We are in a Real Life-or-Death Battle with a real devil and his real demons that are mercilessly, trying to take Our Lives…So when the enemy comes against us, in hot pursuit, with everything he’s got…employing his demons to team up against us, throwing his fiery darts and arrows at us continuously, We Must Stand our Ground – Holding up Our Spiritual Shield of Faith!!
Donnie McClurken, says…After You’ve done All You CAN…You just Stand!!
But here is what We Can Not Do!!
We Can Not let the enemy push Us back, after We’ve made much progress and gained spiritual ground. We Can Not get ‘punked’ again and turn back and run!!
Although We are temporarily, at a stand-still…We Can Still…Stand!!
Now is Not the time to entertain thoughts of fear and unbelief!!
Now is Not the time to give-up or faint!!
There is no white flag attached to Our Amour…So surrender Is NOT an option!!
The Apostle Paul tells us,
-IN [this] freedom Christ has made us free [and completely liberated us]; stand fast then, and do not be hampered and held ensnared and submit again to a yoke of slavery [which you have once put off-
Now is Not the time to accept defeat or submit to Hell’s captivity.
We are Not the property of Satan…so We Can Not retreat back into his filthy hands and back into the sin that enslaved Us and controlled Our lives.
We are the Children of God…His Property…dressed in His blessed Armor…So We Must Stand on God’s Promises…Raising Up Our Shields… Pressing forward, by Faith!!
When the devil is coming against you with everything he’s got…Will You Hold Fast to God’s Promises??
Will you Still…believe God promised that – No weapon that is formed against You shall prosper??
Will You still believe that God said -He will never fail You nor forsake you?? -(Joshua 1:5)
Will you still believe that God said- You have the favor of The Lord and it surrounds You as a Shield??
Will you continue to believe, with confident expectation that the Battle is Not Yours, but it’s God’s??
-(2 Chronicles 20:15)
NOW Is the Time…and This is What We CAN Do!!
Now, Is the time to hold fast to your profession of faith…without wavering back and forth between hope and fear….and between trust and unbelief!!
If Faith is the substance of the things we hope for and the evidence of the things we Can Not see..and if We are hoping to see God’s Deliverance, then…
NOW Is the time to take title to It…
Believing on God’s Promises from
‘The Word’ with All of Our heart…with All of Our Soul..and with All of Our Might…That’s Your Shield!!
We Must believe that God is Coming Through with Deliverance…Sending His Angels to Accompany, Defend and Preserve Our Lives!!
So Be Encouraged in the Lord!!
Hold Fast and Firmly, to Your Shield…Gripping it with everything You’ve got…and keep Pressing Forward, By Faith!!
We Can Win this Spiritual Battle…and if You Peak to the end of the story…We Do Win!!
