Today – being Friday the 13th and all – I want to remind you to take up the shield of faith.
Above all, carry the shield of faith so that you can extinguish the flaming arrows of the evil one. (Eph. 6:16, CEB)
We are saved by grace through faith. But so often we forget that through faith we also receive God’s protection.
God’s your Guardian,
right at your side to protect you—
Shielding you from sunstroke,
sheltering you from moonstroke.
God guards you from every evil,
he guards your very life.
He guards you when you leave and when you return,
he guards you now, he guards you always.
(Psalm 1215-8, MSG)
So let’s not forget to carry our shield of faith. Because our faith in Jesus activates God’s protection for us. Every single day on our faith journey. God will protect us from all evil. Also on Friday the 13th.
All God’s promises are valid also today.
(See more at Christians and Friday the 13th)
Nothing can be against us if we abide in God.
(See more at See more at Friday the 13th – What is it to us?)
Believe, embrace, and celebrate the promises of the Bible.
Speak them to your enemies and watch them to flee.
Enjoy the freedom, protection, and victory you have in Christ.
So claim and carry your shield of faith with great joy.
Today and always.
We thank you and we praise you!
Thank you that nothing can separate us from you.
Thank you that your promises are always true.
Thank you that we are always safe in you.
We carry our shield of faith with joy.
In Jesus’ name,
Q4U: How do you feel about Friday the 13th?
Be blessed, my fellow pilgrim, as you claim and carry your shield of faith with joy!
