Big Sword! Big Shield!
My husband’s ministry is Big Sword, Big Shield Productions. Whenever I hear that phrase, I thing about the armor of God described in Ephesians 6. Interestingly enough, if you have a “Big Sword” you will naturally develop a “Big Shield.”
The sword of the Spirit is the Word of God and the shield is your faith protecting you from all the firey darts of the enemy. Your faith is what you believe about God. The Bible teaches that faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. The more you hear God’s word, the more faith you get, the bigger your shield. The bigger your shield, the better protection you have from all the attacks of the enemy, the world, or anything and anyone else out there that dare come against you.
I commend you to grow your shield, by committing time to God’s word. Get the word in your ears, listen to it. Get it in your eyes, read it. Get it coming out of your mouth, speak it. And watch your shield of faith grow so large you can’t be offended, deceived, or forfeited out of anything God has for you.
