I’m borrowing some word imagery from a dear friend.
We both were living at the Gospel Rescue Mission for Women.
Getting our lives back, studying the Word and
spending time with Jesus.
We were in a class and my friend shared with us
her thoughts on Ephesians 6:16.
Above all, taking the shield of faith,
which you will be able to quench all the fiery
darts of the wicked one.
She described a trampoline as her shield and
whenever Satan’s darts tried to attack and stick
to her, all they would do was bounce off.
This image has stayed with me through the years.
Anytime I feel attacked, I picture my friend holding
up her trampoline with all the fiery darts bouncing off.
It’s a great picture of the Word of God.
Mark 11:22 AMP
Have faith in God constantly.
Faith in God’s Word is our greatest weapon.
We can count on Him, on His trustworthiness,
and His never ending love for us.
But in order for our shield to work well,
we must use it.
Lift up your shield and those darts will bounce off.
Ephesians 6:16 AMP
Lift up over all the (covering) shield of saving faith,
upon which you can quench all the flaming
missiles of the wicked (one).
