God’s Armor (5)

A Roman soldier used a shield to protect himself. He used this shield to fight off arrows shot by the enemy. Sometimes these arrows were set on fire so that they would be more dangerous.
Verse 16 of our Bible verses says, “And also use the shield of faith with which you can stop all the burning arrows that come from the Evil One.” What is faith? Hebrews 11:1 says that faith is “what makes real the things we hope for. It is proof of what we cannot see.”
The devil wants to destroy our faith in God. Every day we can watch TV programs or read articles on the Internet that say there is no God. Or we may meet people who try to convince us that the Bible is not true. The devil wants us to believe these lies.
Our faith in God will help us resist these lies. When the devil tempts us to doubt God, our faith will keep us strong and secure.
