Daily Bread - February 8, 2019 (The Sixth Day - Genesis 1:24-31)

Ephesians 6:17 - And receive the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the
Spirit, which is the proclamation of God's Word.

Part 1: Proclaiming The Word Of Faith

The proclamation of the Word of God is the Word of faith, and it is the
sword of the Spirit in our mouths. In Romans 10:8 we read of the 'rhema
pisteos' ("word of faith"), and then in Ephesians 6:17, 'rhema Theou'
("Word of God"). The related verse in Deuteronomy serves to emphasize the
connection between the Word of God and the word of faith (God's spoken word
in our mouth). The Lord told Israel that the Word He had spoken to them was
to be continually in their mouth, so they would do it (Deuteronomy
30:10-14).

God said He would give us His Spirit and put His Word in our mouths, so
that His Word would not depart out of our mouths (Isaiah 59:21). Those who
are committed to doing all God has commanded must not let the Word depart
out of their mouths, but instead continually speak it (Joshua 1:8; Psalms
119:11; Colossians 3:16; Ephesians 5:18-19). The words the Lord has put in
our mouth are the words that have proceeded from the mouth of God
(Deuteronomy 8:3).

Born of the Word to speak the Word! (1Peter 1:23; John 3:34; 1 John 2:6;
Ephesians 5:1)

Ephesians 6:16 - In everything, taking up the shield of faith, with which
you will be able to quench the fiery darts of the wicked.

Part 2: Divine Authority Over All Powers Of Darkness

This is the faith that puts out the fiery darts of every satanic assault.
Because of the strength of the Lord and the power of His might, we are able
to resist the attacks of the enemy steadfast in the faith and execute
divine authority and judgment over all of the powers of darkness - to cast
them out, throw them down, and stop their works wherever we encounter them
(1 Peter 5:8-9; Luke 10:19; 1 John 3:8; Mark 16:17; Romans 16:20).

The conquering power that conquers everything that is in the world is our
faith (1 John 2:15-17, 5:4). Our faith has been granted to us by God.
Through His Word, and by His Spirit, He has given to us His knowledge,
understanding, and wisdom so that we can stand in the truth and insight of
reality - and reject the lies and deception that would destroy our souls (1
Corinthians 1:30; Galatians2:20; Isaiah 11:2-3; John 15:7-16; James 1:5).

All we have to do is believe the truth and put our trust in God, and no
power of darkness can touch us. Every weapon formed against us will fall
powerless at our feet, for the Lord encamps around us! We dwell in His
pavilion, and we have made Him our habitation (Psalm 27:5, 31:20, 71:3,
91:9-10; John 15:4). His presence, anointing, glory, and the new creation
that He made is our shield of faith!

Take up this shield of God's faith! (Ephesians 6:16; Mark 11:22; Galatians
2:20)

Ephesians 6:16 - In everything, taking up the shield of faith, with which
you will be able to quench the fiery darts of the wicked.

Part 1: God Himself is Our Shield!

Faith is a shield that will protect you from every kind of assault that
could be launched against you. Almighty God Himself is a shield about us,
and He is our faith (Psalm 3:3, 5:12, 18:35, 28:7, 33:20, 84:11). This is
not like the shield of any earthly army -this is a shield that surrounds us
from head to toe, front and back for it is the glory of the Lord and the
shield of His presence!

If God is going to be our shield, then we must put our trust in Him
(Proverbs 30:5). The faith of God is found in His Word, and in His Word we
must trust. We must remain confident in the things God has spoken and the
promises He has made. If the armor of God is going to be effective for us,
then we must believe His glory is both in us and around us (John 14:17;
Isaiah 4:5; Matthew 3:11).

The whole message of the armor of God is one of possessing the identity of
Christ, putting on the new man, and being clothed with the Lord Jesus -Who
is to us an armor of light and an armor of righteousness (Ephesians 4:24;
Romans 13:12, 14; 2 Corinthians 6:7).

Take up the shield of God's faith! (Ephesians 6:16; Mark 11:22)

Ephesians 6:15 - And bind your feet with the preparation of the gospel of
peace.

Part 2: Beautiful Feet

The feet that are prepared with the gospel of peace are called beautiful
feet (Isaiah 52:7). The prophet Isaiah gives the imagery of the swift deer
upon the mountaintops when speaking of those who bring the announcement of
the Gospel. We run throughout the Earth declaring to all mankind that
salvation is made available to everyone. Liberty has come! Men no longer
need to sit in darkness and remain slaves to sin! Those who have their feet
shod with the gospel of peace will not slip in the treacherous places,
their feet will be like hinds' feet, having the ability to walk upon the
high places in God with absolute authority over every power of darkness
(Psalms 17:5, 18:33, 36, 37:31; Habakkuk 3:19). It is the God of peace that
crushes Satan under our feet (Romans 16:20).

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news,
who proclaims peace, who brings good news of happiness, who proclaims
salvation! (Isaiah 52:7)

Ephesians 6:15 - And bind your feet with the preparation of the gospel of
peace.

Part 1: Advancing the Kingdom!

We should not think of the army of God and the individual soldiers in His
army as maintaining a defensive posture. We are not holding down the fort,
but advancing the message of the Kingdom throughout the Earth. It is
important to realize each one of us have the commission and the
responsibility to announce the gospel of peace to every person on Earth
(Mark 16:15; Matthew 28:18-19). One of the most effective weapons to stop
the attack of Satan against us individually is the word of our testimony
(Revelation 12:11; Romans 10:6-15; Luke 10:19).

The announcement of peace calms the raging storm, and breaks the stronghold
of death. Although Satan would blind the hearts and the minds of men so the
Gospel would be hid, we are given the authority to speak these words of
life that will break every yoke and render Satan's devices ineffective. The
glorious light of the gospel of peace will demolish strongholds, set the
captives free, turn those in darkness to light, and from the power of Satan
unto God (Luke 1:79; Acts 26:18; 2 Corinthians 4:3-6, 10:4-5; Isaiah 60:1).

All authority in Heaven and on Earth has been given to Jesus! Go,
therefore, and make disciples of all nations! (Matthew 28:18-20)
