Eph 6:15-17 Stand therefore having your loins girt about with truth and having on the breatplate of righteousness. And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. Above all taking the SHIELD OF FAITH with which ye will be able to extinguish all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit which is the word of God. When your in war with Satan put on the whole armor of God you will stand through the trials. Without the armor one is defenseless.

pt.1: It is trusting and knowing that God's Almightiness will protect us. "And we know that to those who love God, all things work together for good, to them who according to purpose are called. What will we then say to these things? If God for us, who against us? A thousand will fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; it will not come near you."

pt.2: "Every weapon sharpened against you will not succeed: and every tongue opposing you in judgment you will condemn. This the heritage of the servants of YHWH, and their righteousness from me, says YHWH." Romans 8:28,31; Psalm 91:7; Isaiah 54:17.

I remember a sermon that was preached about the shield of faith many years ago. It stands out because the preacher said, the shield of faith was spiritual; and that quoting the Scripture about the shield of faith and trying to physically place it on yourself by visualization was not the shield of faith.

I know many quote and visualize, the helmet of Salvation, the breastplate of Righteousness, the girdle of Truth, the sandals of the Gospel of Peace, the Shield of Faith, the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, and Jesus as our rear guard.

Read in Isaiah 59:16-21
The Lord saw it and it displeased Him.
There was no justice, no man, and there
was no intercessor;

His own arm brought salvation for Him
His own righteousness, it sustained Him.
He put on Righteousness as a breastplate,
A helment of salvation on His head;
He put on the garments of vengeance, clothing
He was clad with zeal as a cloak.
---Raine on 4/15/07

According to their deeds He will repay
Fury to His adversaries,
Recompense to His enemies....
So shall they fear
The name of the Lord..
When the enemy comes in
like a flood the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.

Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked."--- Ephesians 6:16

"For he put on righteousness as a breastplate, and an helmet of salvation upon his head." --- Isaiah 59:17

"But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation." --- I Thessalonians 5:8

The Bottom Line

In Romans 10:17 "Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God." We increase our faith by reading the Bible. Faith works in love Galatians 5:6 and "perfect love casteth out all fear." I John 1:18. Faith casts out fear. To live a life without fear you need to read, study, and meditate on the Word of God.

Amen Josef...keep speaking the truth, and BLESS YOU!

"How does the shield of faith protect a believer?"

This confidence extinguishes the passions, anger, grief, etc. that suddenly arises within us as we experience a perceived injustice, which if left unchecked, could cause us intense mental and/or emotional discomfort, This 'shield' protects us by prompting us to embrace His rest with thanksgiving and praise, rather than succumbing to those carnal passions.
---josef on 4/15/07

"What does is mean to wear the shield of faith?"

This means we are to receive the gift of the complete measure, or portion of His faith that has been offered for our acceptance & enter into His rest by opening our minds to that superimposed confidence. Trusting Him as a child trust his/her parent. Being fully persuaded that what the Father has promised in His word, He is able and willing to perform.
