¿ESTA SU MATRIMONIÓ EN UNA GUERRA?
Would you like to quench every flaming dart the devil tries to shoot into your marriage?
In Ephesians the Apostle Paul assures us that with our shield of faith, we can be supernaturally empowered to defend ourselves.
“Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.” Eph.6:16
Every fiery dart the devil throws your way can be extinguished by the Holy Spirit.
CASE AND POINT: During the Iraqi War and the Gulf War of 1991, scud missiles were being thrown at our soldiers and civilians. The Patriot Missile system was designed to detect, target then hit an incoming missile. Without the patriot missile, many lives would have been taken.
The “shield” was a large stone used to close and entrance; a door.
The shields were the full length of a man about the size of a door.
To assure the soldier that fiery darts would not affect them, the shield protected them from head to toe.
This is an example of the Holy Spirit protecting us as we use our “shield of faith.”
With God on our side, the enemy cannot penetrate our supernatural shield that is guarding us from head to toe.
Faith is an essential protection over your marriage against flaming arrows of temptation.
Oliver Wendell Holmes said, “It is faith in something that makes life worth living.”
Our marriage is in a war all the time.
When a flaming missile is lodged, it burns everything in its vicinity.
This is exactly the way the enemy works in our marriage since God’s word warns us that the devil is here to kill, steal and destroy.
You must carry the “shield of faith” in front of you.
The battle is not a power struggle, it’s a truth struggle.
Make sure that you are not quenching the Holy Spirit before you try to quench the devils darts.
What are the “fiery darts?” doubts, fears, worries, etc.
Do you care enough for your marriage to fight for it?
Choose between what is true and what is deceit in this world.
Is the devil throwing deceitful lying thoughts?
Your marriage is in a war zone!
Fight with the shield of Faith!!
