Day 3: Facing Trials with Faith
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wickedEphesians 6:16 (KJV)
Reflection: Our faith isn’t just belief; it’s a powerful defense against the challenges and attacks we face. When we take up the shield of faith, we’re not just believing in God’s existence; we’re trusting in His promises, His goodness, and His protection. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego used their faith as a shield, and we should do the same.
Illustration: Our faith is like an umbrella during a storm. It doesn’t stop the storm, but it does protect us and help us to keep moving forward.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, help us to lift the shield of faith in our trials. May we trust You, knowing You are our ultimate protector. Amen.
