Your Faith Protects You
“Let your faith be like a shield, and you will be able to stop all the flaming arrows of the evil one.”
Back in the day they use archers with bows and arrows to fight wars, and in order to protect themselves soldiers carried shields.
When we have hard times in life they can feel like little attacks, like arrows. They can wear us down, and makes us feel beaten down. If we have nothing to protect us then we leave ourselves vulnerable. Like a soldier with no shield.
Our shield from life is our faith in Jesus. No matter how difficult or scary it is knowing and believing that Jesus is real, he is really good, and he really loves us will protect us from those little attacks in life.
