Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional January 19th – Neutralise Fiery Darts By Faith

(Faith Is A Powerful Shield In God’s Armoury)

TO THE BIBLE: Ephesians 6:11-12 AMPC
“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 the deceits of the devil. For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.”

LET’S TALK
Today’s opening scripture lets us know we’re in a fight and who we’re up against in it.

These demons, known as “the world rulers of this present darkness,” are the ones that run the course of this world, manipulating and controlling the thoughts and minds of those who are rebellious to Jesus Christ and the Gospel.

There’s no good whatsoever in demons. Everything about them is evil, and they’ve got no restraint to wickedness, except when we restrain them by the power of the Holy Spirit and in the Name of Jesus.

Ephesians 6 tells us with what to put up our attack and wage our defence against these evil forces of darkness. Verse 13 says, “Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”

Then in the 16th verse, after identifying the defence paraphernalia, he says, “Above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one… and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” (Ephesians 6:16-17).

Here’s why the message of faith is so important; because it says, “Above all, taking the shield of faith!” This doesn’t mean you’re to look for a shield called faith; instead, it means as you operate your faith in God’s Word, it’s a shield with which you shall, without doubt, be able to quench, neutralise, defuse and put out all the fiery darts of the wicked.

It doesn’t matter what missile the enemy throws at you; your faith quells and neutralises them.

Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17). The more of God’s Word you hear, the more your faith increases. And the more you put the Word of God to work, the more your faith is strengthened. Keep hearing God’s Word and putting it to work; your faith will be strong and effective. Hallelujah!

Dear Father, I thank you for the faith I have in your Word; my faith is alive, and with it, I quench, neutralise, defuse, put out and extinguish all the fiery darts of the enemy, foiling and rendering his devices, manipulations, tricks, lies, schemes and stratagems ineffective, in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
