Greetings, friends! I will be talking about another piece of the Armor,  The Shield of Faith. Faith comes from you. Not your mom, aunt, granny, friend or dad. You. You need to believe in God. You need to believe in Jesus. You need to believe Jesus died on the cross for your sins. Faith is on you. Although we have victory through Jesus, we already have victory from God.


 

The difference between believers and unbelievers is that believers have faith and unbelievers don’t. Since they don’t have faith, they worry, and stress.  But as Christians we rely on God, so we have peace in our hearts. It drives away all the worries in our hearts and minds.


 

Do you know what Faith is? Faith is everything we know about God and that we believe Jesus died on the cross in our place. He is our Founder and Perfector. James 2:19 says that faith by itself is meaningless. We need to do good deeds as well. We all go to Jesus so that we can receive Salvation. But meanwhile, we are on the road to Sanctification. We stay in this process until we die. Sanctification is how we grow spiritually. While we are on this road, Jesus will help us. But our faith must be tested. James 1:2-8 tells us that we should not be unhappy with the trouble we are facing. It will help us build endurance, and when it is complete, we will be perfect.


 

Although you need wisdom, God will give it to you without rebuking you. But you must trust him completely or else you shouldn’t receive anything from the Lord. I love the Lord, so I feel that no one can drive my faith away. Or, I have unshakable faith. Although I know that I’m still on the road to sanctification, I still believe Jesus will help me through it. I do believe it. I have some good news: Our faith can grow. People who don’t believe too much are those with little faith like in Matthew 8:23-27. It talks about the boat ride with Jesus and his disciples. so Jesus went into the boat with his disciples, but a violent storm struck while sleeping. The disciples woke him up, saying, “Save us Lord! We’re going to drown!” But Jesus replied, “Why are you so afraid? You with little Faith! “This is an example that our faith is still so little that it still does not know everything, but as your faith grows, we will know little by little.


 

Proverbs 3:5-8 means that we should not be prideful with our wisdom. Like I mentioned, we still don’t know everything. But if we fear the Lord, then our faith will build up until we are perfect. It is like building up a tower until it is complete. We take Jesus for granted because we hear him all the time. Just like if you live on Hawaii, you’ll see beaches all the time. But if you saw a beach for the first time, then it would be like a big deal. You would be like “Oh my gosh, that is so cool” and stuff like that. That is what we do. We take Jesus for granted, but newcomers are amazed. People who have been Christian for a long time take him for granted because we hear him over and over again. We have forgotten that we have been given the best of all gifts. 1 Corinthians 13:13 tells us three things that will last forever – Love, Faith, and Hope.


 

Peace is what makes us feel peace in our hearts. When we encounter hardships, we are not encountering the same hardships as a person who doesn’t know Jesus. And when we encounter hardships, we don’t focus on them. We focus on Jesus and fix our eyes on Him.


 

The moral of the story, like the title, is The Shield of Faith.
