16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
To live without fear, you have to live without DOUBT. You have to lift up the shield of faith against it. Our doubt comes because we doubt ourselves. We have to come boldly. Are we going to believe God or are we going to believe our circumstances? (ideas taken from a message by Joyce Meyer)
Oh, dear Father, my doubts can separate me from knowing Your trust and confidence in me. PLEASE help me to recognize that You love me 100% even when I am being a total idiot. Your love continues to pour over me even when I don’t feel it, I can’t grasp it, and I stubbornly don’t receive it as the strength for My day. I am Your child. Help me. Amen
