…looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, Hebrews 12:2 NKJV.
Jesus is the Shield of Faith for He is the Author and Finisher of our Faith. Our faith begins at salvation and continues throughout our life as a believer, for ” it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.” Hebrews 11:6 NLT. Romans 1:17 NLT says: “This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. As the Scriptures say, “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.”
Therefore, everyday we need to be holding up the Shield of Faith, to stand strong against the enemy who prowls around like a lion seeking to devour us. “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.” 1 Peter 5:8-9 NKJV
Prayer: Dear God, thank You for providing Your Son, Jesus, the Author and Finisher of Faith to be my Shield, helping me daily to stand strong against the powers and principalities in the heavenlies. At the time of my passing into eternity I want to be able to say as Paul said: “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” 2 Timothy 4:7 NKJV. Therefore, I need to be wearing the Armor daily, holding up the Shield of Faith to guard myself from the firey darts of the wicked ones. I pray for strength God that I might be a good and faithful soldier in Your service daily. Thank You God. Amen.
Today: Wear the Armor–Hold up the Shield of Faith–Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. 1 Corinthians 16:13.
For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. 1 John 5:4 NLT
Thank You Jesus for being our Author and Finisher of Faith that saved us and will protect us daily.
