Scripture: Ephesians 6:  In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
Observation: Why do I have such a hard time picking up my shield? The devil continues to shoot arrows and my shield is down. Throughout the day I get overwhelmed as Satan has his fun with me. It must hurt God after all he had done for me that my faith is so weak.
Application: I need to visualize my shield and the terrible thoughts and worries the enemy throws my way and protect myself. God has blessed me so much and has protected me all of my life. I need to make my shield larger so it completely covers me.
Prayer: Dear Lord increase my faith, so I will trust you with all of my heart and not lean on my own understanding but in all my ways trust in you.
