Precious Disciple of Jesus Christ, the Daystar,
To be a Christian is to be a warrior in God’s army. One of our weapons of warfare is the shield of faith.
When we keep the shield of faith in front of us, we will be able to quench ALL the fiery darts of the enemy. This doesn’t mean that we will simply deflect those fiery darts; it means that we will actually put out their flames. In other words, we won’t get burned! Hallelujah!
How do we keep the shield of faith in front of us? Through what we believe in our heart and through what we speak with our mouth (Romans 10: 10).
What you keep hearing, you will eventually believe. What you believe, you will eventually speak. And what you speak will eventually come to pass.
Your sister in Christ,
Dr. MaryAnn Diorio
