And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased. Then those who were in the boat came and worshiped Him, saying, “Truly You are the Son of God.” –Matthew 14:32-33
The sixth chapter of Ephesians explains the spiritual armor we need for spiritual battle. In this chapter faith is represented as the shield. As a child, I often wondered why this was. Over the years I realized why faith is the shield. If we have weak faith, or a small shield, we lack the ability to trust God and are more susceptible to lies and attacks from the enemy. However, if we have strong faith, or a large shield, then we better understand our position in Christ and we are more able to go through situations/areas that may be dangerous. This is because with a large shield of faith we don’t let outside circumstances affect what we know about the Lord. We know that Jesus is omnipotent in the boat, out on the water, and absolutely everywhere. Come out of your comfort zone!!!
“I’m coming out of my comfort zone
Some of the places in my life that’s comfortable
God is challenging me
To trust and believe
For to go where I’ve not gone
I must do what I’ve not done!”
