You will not be afraid of...the arrow that flies by day
Arrows Are Deliberately Sent
The second category of evil is the arrow that flies by day. An arrow is something that pierces or wounds spiritually, physically, mentally or emotionally. This category indicates that you are in a spiritual battle zone—specific enemy assignments that are directed toward your life to defeat you.
Arrows are deliberately sent by the enemy and meticulously aimed at the spot that will cause the most damage. They are targeted toward the area where our mind is not renewed by the Word of God—perhaps an area where we are still losing our temper, or an area where we are still easily offended, or perhaps, an area of rebellion or fear!
The Enemy Doesn't Attack Where You Are Strong
Seldom does the enemy attack us in an area where we are built up and strong. He attacks us where we’re still struggling. That’s why we have to run to God! And when we do battle using our spiritual weapons, his arrows will not approach us.
God tells us in Ephesians 6:12 that we have a “shield of faith to extinguish all the flaming darts of the enemy.” These are not just plain arrows, they are “on fire”. And, God doesn’t say we can miss most of them. He says that we can extinguish “all” of them. When arrows are sent to wound us spiritually, physically, emotionally or financially.
God wants us to ask and believe by faith that He will pick us up out of harm’s way and deliver us from calamity.
We Have a Covenant
We have a covenant with God telling us not to be afraid of the arrow that flies by day. Assignments will rise up, but don’t be afraid. He has promised to protect us and He has promised the arrows will not hit their target.
