Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
What is faith? Faith is one's belief. One's belief that there is a God who created all that is seen and unseen (Genesis 1:1) A belief that Jesus Christ is God's Son who was born of a woman and died on the cross at Calvary. In doing so He took away the sins of the world and all who believe in Him is saved. Faith is the ability to see the invisible as though it is visible. Hebrews 11:1 defines faith as the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of thing not seen, which authenticates the above statement on faith.
That being said, faith the size of a mustard seed one can move mountain, which is life's seemly unmoveable situations. Faith leads to righteousness because believers are able to stand on God's Word in the face of all manner of evil and wickedness that the world brings. Faith enables believes to stand alone if necessary and declare the truth of God's Word in spite of some times being persecuted for Christ's sake.
Believers are being persecuted in many ways and in many places today for their faith in Jesus Christ. Let me encourage all to stand firm on your faith because of your faith you have victory through Christ that was won on Calvary's cross.
Fight on and stand firm in your faith as it is your protective shield.
