Many good things can be accomplished through faith in God.
We fight the good fight and take hold on eternal life, by faith.
1 Timothy 6:12 NKJV
“Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life…”
We quench all the fiery darts of Satan, by our faith.
Ephesians 6:16 NKJV
“above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.”
In ancient warfare one of the most potent weapons was an arrow with fire on the tip. These flaming arrows could set houses, crops and cities on fire, when they struck.
The only way to stop the enemy from using flaming arrows to burn your house, crops or city, was to extinguish the flames. Faith will douse the Satan’s fire.
Faith will give you victory in the face of overwhelming odds.
Hebrews 11:32-33 NKJV
“And what more shall I say? For the time would fail me to tell of Gideon and Barak and Samson and Jephthah, also of David and Samuel and the prophets: who through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,”
Three of the men mentioned here encountered lions and came out unhurt.
Daniel stayed overnight in a den of hungry lions.
Daniel 6:16 NKJV
“So the king gave the command, and they brought Daniel and cast him into the den of lions. But the king spoke, saying to Daniel, “Your God, whom you serve continually, He will deliver you.”
By his faith in God, he came out unscathed.
Daniel 6:21-22a NKJV
“Then Daniel said to the king, “O king, live forever! My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths, so that they have not hurt me….”
May your faith be empowered for exploits as you go to church.
