Bible Blessings® knows Christian gifts are more than luxurious fashion accessories that represent your faith. Christian gifts in other forms allow you to overcome many obstacles in life.
Taking the shield of faith
In Ephesians, we read “In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one” 6:16. If you remember during Roman times, a Roman soldier's shield protected him from head to toe.
It was made of iron, upholstered in thick layers of fabric, and saturated in water when going to battle.
Consequently, the flaming arrows of the enemy fizzled on contact. Getting the idea? When you take up the shield of faith, you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
The gifts of a pure heart
Satan can't penetrate a heart that's pure, saturated in Scripture and fortified by faith. That's why Jesus told Peter that because he prayed for him, his faith would not fail. It's your faith that's under attack.
It's your faith that needs to be fed and nurtured. It's your faith that sustains you in life's battles! Jesus told us to have faith in God. He didn't just say, "Have faith in something bigger than yourself." No, He said, "Have faith in God."
Claim your gifts
If you're under attack today claim this promise that God gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might, He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength. They will run and not be weary, and they will walk and not faint.
God gives each of us a measure of faith. But you must develop it by building yourself up on your most holy faith. Faith under attack is faith under construction. It's in the battles of life that you discover whether you have nurtured faith or neglected faith!
