Steps to overcoming life’s challenges (Pt 5) – Shield of Faith

If  you missed the previous post, kindly read it here

Ephesians 6:16
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.


Faith is so important to God that the Bible reminds us in Hebrew 11 VS 6 that without faith it is impossible to please God. God created us to please him and the tool for which we can achieve God’s purpose for our life is faith.

King David stood in front of Goliath, the mighty warrior feared by mighty warriors, and declared that Goliath was nothing before his God. That was faith.

Daniel refused to bow down to the idol erected by the king, he chose rather please the Lord and walk into the Lion’s den. That was faith.

Esther chose to please the Lord by going before the king. In those days if a woman came before the king without being sent for, she risked being beheaded but she went ahead and said, ‘if I die, I die’. that was faith.

To overcome life’s challenges we need to please the Lord, we need faith. Faith is what makes you to say that although the economy is bad I will not lack. It is faith that makes you pay your tithe even though you don’t have enough to last you till the end of the month. Faith is what makes you to sing and dance when expectant mothers are called out even though you have been childless for more than a decade. Faith is what makes you walk into an autoshop and price a Ferrari even though you don’t have money to buy a golf.

In Genesis chapter 1 Vs 26, God created man with the intention that he takes dominion. The medium by which he can do that is Faith. By faith we call into existence everything we need. You resign to start a business entirely by faith. By faith you marry that girl, or go into full time Ministry. By faith, by faith.

Challenges will come but we must learn to walk by faith and not by sight. That is one sure way to overcome life’s challenges and please God.
Start now, please God, have faith.
