Being eaten alive

Posted by appolus on March 22, 2017

I think one of the worse fears that human beings have, and it is a primal thing, is to be eaten alive. It is really why we have this “fight or flight,” reaction that is programmed into our DNA. The chances of the average human being today being eaten alive is almost zero but we still have our fight or flight protection built into who we are.

Now there is a spiritual equivalent to being eaten alive. It is very possible that we have someone in our lives who have the capacity to tear at our souls and eat us alive from the inside out. This is a great danger and takes the wisdom and strength of God Himself through the power of the Holy Spirit to deal with. If you are dealing with that today. If there is someone in your life that is ripping away at your very soul and the essence of who you are then my prayer for you today is to take up the shield of faith.

This shield is more real than any human shield that has been used in warfare for centuries. This is a shield that exists in the Kingdom of God in which we walk. And if we use it, if we pick it up, it will protect us from the fiery darts of an enemy who, if allowed, will tear your heart to pieces. The enemy uses people as arrows and he never misses the unprotected.

These arrows are not just arrows, which would be deadly enough, they are fiery arrows intended not just to kill and destroy but to burn. This fire, brothers and sisters, is quenched by the living waters that flows from the throne room of God. Come to God today before His throne, put the fire out, take up the shield of faith and stand in the evil day. May God bless you and be with you in the battle.

Eph 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
