The Shield of Faith
Hold up the shield of faith,
With every obstacle you face.
Say the words out loud,
What is provided by His grace.
Prayer is the connection,
For all that is promised to you.
Have no doubt about His ability,
Jesus Name will get you through.
Prayer is saying what God said.
Praying is repeating His Holy Word.
His Word is the only way,
To fight Satan in this world.
Jesus obtained the victory,
Through His death on the cross.
He has obtained your healing.
You can deny your every loss.
Your enemy is Satan and his powers.
There are forces working against you,
But calling out the name of Jesus,
Will help pull you through.
Stand firm in your faith
Use it as your shield and sword.
Satan wants to blind your eyes.
He wants to hide God’s Word.
Hold up that shield of faith,
When Satan taunts your life.
Tell Satan the way things are,
To keep away all his lies.
The precious name of Jesus,
Will scare Satan away.
Use His Word always.
It is your shield every day.
Receive all your blessings,
By saying His Word out loud.
You are a child of the King,
And of that you can be proud.
You have a rich inheritance.
You have the permission you need,
To receive all His promises.
His Word will cover your deeds.
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; 19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
We have all the tools we need for a good life. We have the Word of God, but we need to know how to use that Word as we walk through any trials in our lives. There is a spiritual battle going on in our lives every day and we must use the equipment that God provided to fight this kind of warfare. Satan has a battle with us every day and the battle is in our minds. Our minds direct us to do good or to give into evil and sin. Every time that we fall into sin, we have let Satan win that battle. He tries to defeat us, one sin at a time, until we feel so unworthy and so unloved that we are ashamed to face our God with our transgressions. God already knows what we have done, so we cannot hide from His eyes. He will forgive us if we just ask. He has supplied us with the truth and those words are what we go to battle with. They are our shield of faith and they are the sword in which we can chase Satan away and render him defeated. Tell Satan you are healed and not sick. Tell him that you have the joy of the Lord in your heart and depression cannot rule you. Tell him you shall live and not die. Tell him that God will supply all your needs. Tell Him that God will open doors that no one can shut and shut doors that no one can open. With God you have all the power your need. Jesus opened the way for us and all we could ever need, so proclaim your victory in the Name of Jesus.
