"Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked."
(1 John 1:6 NASB)

In addition to the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, and the shoes of readiness, we are to make sure we take the shield of faith above all. With the shield of faith, we are able to snuff out all the fiery arrows that our enemy, Satan, has set on fire and thrown at us through the trying experiences of our life.

The Message Bible says: "Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has"

The Roman soldier carried a huge shield into battle against his enemies. He would raise it up to protect himself as the adversary filled the air with a barrage of fiery arrows.

Everything the enemy threw at him failed, because the shield did its job by protecting the soldier. So, let your faith be like a shield. Carry it with you at all times and you will be able to quench all the troubling circumstances shot at you by the wicked one.

Today's Thought to Take With You:
I take my shield of faith and raise it against the fiery darts the enemy throws at me. I prevail over all the attacks of the enemy.
