Proverbs of a 35 yr old man.
Shields up! Here comes another round of fiery arrows from the evil one, landing any which way they want. As I run to the bunker, the secret place where I find shelter in Christ. I am terrified as I see around me wounded souls crying out to God. They are in pain from the consequences of sin. They had become complacent in religious duty, forgetting to hold up the shield of faith and stop the fiery arrows from piercing their hearts. You see the strategy of evil is to soak the tips of the arrow with all kinds of lustful poisons. Christian soldier beware of falling arrows designed to quench your spirit in Christ! If sinful desires can get into our hearts we are already defeated even before we quote scripture. I am safe now in the secret bunker, but I see so many wounded souls in need of shelter from the constant barrage of spiritual attacks. Yes Lord Jesus, while there is still daylight, I will stay in armour. Putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and the helmet of our hope of salvation! I will go slay dragons and carry the wounded to the safety of your throneroom. In the night their will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, it is too late then. The day of vengeance will have come. He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire. He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God, the Almighty.
