Take Up the Shield of Faith
How does faith extinguish demonic attack? If the particular demonic attack is doubt, then faith will obviously and effectively quench it. But more is intended here. The Greek phrasing behind “shield of faith” could also be translated “shield of the faith.” What protects us from Satan’s assault is not just only our personal trust in God but also the core of Christian belief. When we are being harassed by the enemy, we hang on tight to what we believe.
