Trust - that most fragile of gifts that we can give to others; so rarely fully given, and so often broken. But how does trust factor into our relationship with God? What are we trusting him for? And even more importantly, what does it mean to think that God is trusting us? Find out today with Nikki and our writers over at https://as-it-is-in-heaven.com

#38 The Sheild of Faith

So you've got your belt buckled on tightly and your breastplate secured in place. You've got your footwear of the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace protecting your feet in this spiritual battle, but how can we actively defend ourselves against the attacks of the enemy?

Enter: The Shield of Faith.

In today's episode, Jayden will show you how to take up and use the shield of faith that God has provided for all of us as we equip ourselves to live lives worthy of the list of the faithful in Hebrews 11.

In his sermon on the mount, AKA the Beatitudes, Jesus went about telling those who were there with him exactly how they could be blessed by God. Spoiler alert: it doesn't really sound anything like the usual self-help advice you might be used to. Far from being a list of dos and don'ts, this often-quoted but not-as-often-practiced passage has a deeper side to it that we may have missed.

Join Nikki and our team over at https://as-it-is-in-heaven.com for a deep dive into what it means to follow Jesus' advice on how to among those who God blesses.

Continuing through our series examining the armory of God in Ephesians 6, Jayden takes a look at the footwear God has provided for all of us to wear as we enter the thick of spiritual warfare. But how do we wear the gospel-like shoes? And how does the gospel equip us with readiness? Come join us for a look at the surprising secrets of our faith hidden in this wonderful verse, and get ready to strap yourself into your God-given kicks to be ready for all the plans He has for you!

Heaven is cool, right? You're going there one day, right? Right? This week, join Nikki and the writers over at As It Is In Heaven for a thought-provoking look at what the Bible actually says about how we can be those who go to heaven - you might be surprised to learn that there is a bit more to it than we may have been lead to believe.

Continuing with our series on the armor of God in Ephesians 6, this week Jayden takes an in-depth look at the breastplate of righteousness. At the end of our previous episode, we briefly looked at the different ways we can understand the idea of righteousness and why defining it from God's perspective rather than that of human morality is essential. Today, we'll examine why righteousness is linked to the idea of a breastplate that guards our hearts in the spiritual battle we are engaged in.

In today's world, we are bombarded with media and information at every turn. While you listen to this podcast you may also be readying roadsigns or checking your navigation (if you are driving or jogging)... you might even be tempted to check your social media or text a friend. With Youtube and Tiktok, Instagram and podcasts flooding our minds 24/7, how on earth can we find the time and the attention to get anything out of the Bible? And, with all the apps and information available to us online these days, is it even necessary?

Join Nikki and our writers over at https://as-it-is-in-heaven.com for an affirming and encouraging reminder of why personal daily meditation with God's Word is vital for believers.

This week we're back in the studio with Jayden to wrap up our exploration of the first item in God's armory - the Belt of Truth. Today, Jayden will walk us through three key scriptures that hold the key to us keeping that belt buckled around our waists! Of course, keeping that belt in place depends on our understanding and acting on the verses mentioned in today's episode, so you might want to have a pen and paper handy. We end off today's episode exploring a key concept we'll need to keep handy as we move on to the breastplate of righteousness in our next episode!

The struggle is real, people. In the business and social disconnection of our modern world, more and more people find themselves struggling with issues like depression and anxiety. It is so important to remember that, while we may feel broken and beaten down at times - often by ourselves - that God understands. What's more, understanding His Word can bring us a level of peace that comes from the security of the hope we have in Him. The Bible, on the other hand, is a book that comes with a lot of baggage, particularly if you've ever had it thrust in your face as a purported cure... Join Nikki and our writers over at https://as-it-is-in-heaven.com as they unpack 5 of the verses that have brought comfort and hope in times of anxiety!

In Ephesians 6:10-18, the Apostle Paul writes about a spiritual battle that we, as believers, are engaged in. Over the years, we've all heard speakers, teachers, or pastors deliver rousing messages of encouragement to auditoriums full of believers who all too often are left holding the concept of their spiritual armor and weapons without the practical knowledge of how to use them. Over the next few episodes, join Jayden as he brings you all the information you need to be fully equipped and skilly prepared to use the mighty spiritual weapons of God. Welcome to God's armory. Today we'll be learning about how not to be caught in open battle with our pants down... a very important first lesson for spiritual warfare.
