Above all, taking the shield of faith, ‘’

But what is faith? (Hebrews 11:1) Says faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. We not only have to have the shield of faith, we have to know how to use it. Why does it say ‘above all’ take the shield of faith? Simply for the reason that salvation (the helmet) righteousness (the breastplate) the gospel (the shoes) and both the written Word of God (the belt of truth) and spoken Word of God (the sword) must all be received by faith. The shield of faith is movable to deflect attacks no matter from which direction they come. If the devil cannot get to you directly (from the front) he will attack from another direction. If all personal attacks on you fail because of the strength of your faith, he will often attack you through another person to attempt to provoke fear or offense to allow him a foothold. Refusal to fear or be offended will foil even these attacks. God’s word is very plain that if we resist the devil he will flee from us. By exercising faith in God’s provisions and God’s power, we can be equipped to defeat Satan and his attacks.
