Have you ever been stung by a bee? No matter how strong or tough a person is, one sting is all it takes to get a reaction... some even severe and allergic- But even a small child, tender and weak, could easily withstand a thousand or more with a beekeepers suit- One of the most simple yet most effective tactics of the enemy, (in his attempt to get the children of God to react in their flesh rather than respond in spirit), is to shoot fiery darts. These come in many fashions and to our unprotected flesh they are quite effective- Tho the Lord provides for His children, equipping them to be able to keep step (pace) with Him. Firstly He reminds us we are at war,... making note that our enemy seeks to destroy us and then urges us to put on the full amour. Much like how a beekeepers suit protects against stings tho the bees swarm about, the amour of God allows us to stay focused and unharmed as we venture into the battle of the day, especially against the darts we didn’t see coming. What would normally be sufficient to get a child of God to react in their flesh getting all red faced and worked up, is now almost a ticklish thing barely being noticed😇 So be mindful,.... the days are evil - we are at war- amour up 🙏🏻
The shield of faith is able to quench all the fiery darts.Eph 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
