The armor of God Part 2
The Armor of God Part 2
By Wayne McDonald

Ephesians 6:11 Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all the strategies and deceits of the devil. Vs 16 Lift up over all the [covering] shield of saving faith, upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked one.

Notice that the shield of faith quenches all the missiles of the devil. We live in victory as long as we keep our shield of faith raised up. Jesus said, in Mark 16:17-18 That these signs will accompany those who believe: in My name they will drive out demons; they will speak in a new languages; Vs 18 They will pick up serpents; and [even] if they drink anything deadly, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will get well.

Nothing can hurt us as long as we keep our shield of faith lifted up. I did not say we are not going to go through test and trials, but I did say we could come through these tests having our faith and lives still in tack and our lives on track. Stay dressed in the armor of God!
