GOD OUR STRONG DEFENSE
Ephesians 6:16 ” In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish the flaming arrows of the evil one.”
The Scene: A spiritual representation of the fiery dart of Satan– God’s– and our–enemy. The enemy’s arrow has arched overhead toward its target. However, another speeding arrow, sent by the Lord, intercepts Satan’s arrow, hitting full force and snapping the enemy’s arrow in two. Satan’s arrow then falls harmlessly to the ground.
Ephesians 6:13-14 “Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.”
Psalm 46:1 ” God is our refuge and our strength, an ever- present help in trouble.”
Our God watches over us, awaiting our call for help. Many times He forewarns us through His Holy Spirit, to take evasive action to avoid Satan’s snares/traps, whose goal is to destroy us eternally.
Psalm 121: 5 ” The Lord watches over you– the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from harm– he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.”
