“Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.” (Ephesians 6: 16)
Our protection against the attacks of materiality and its limits and lies, is our faith in the Truth. The reliance on and belief in God, good, the great I AM of all Life, gives us everything necessary to deflect evil’s accusations. As we know the omnipotent ever-presence of good, Truth, the insistent battering of the lies does not concern us and cannot paralyze us. Our trust is well-settled in God’s authority and goodness and purpose.
This “shield of faith” is our daily identification with God, our awareness of Him and of our own presence with Him. We can conscientiously realize the Principle that is infallibly loving, sustaining, and saving. We can actively draw close to that divine Principle of our Life that does not fear the taunts of material sense or evil purposes, because in that Truth our innocence is found and kept intact.
The fiery darts of mortal opinions, of false judgments, of the doom of time and circumstance, are quenched in this protective embrace, washed away in the refreshing reality of Love. Nothing can harm us, for our faith is well-placed. Our Father-Mother is faithful to us, and we are the faithful reflection of His infinite and perfect and safe and triumphant Life!
