“Above all, taking the shield of faith” (Eph 6:16). Often this shield is molded in the fires of testing. Andrew Stenhouse writes: “The landlord called for his money the first day of the month. Our mail came by sea. One had just come and brought us no mail, the next due in two weeks. The first of the month came, but the landlord did not. A week passed; then the second. The ship arrived, but our box was as empty as two weeks before! The day following, we went again, and there in the box was an Air Mail letter, the first we ever received. It contained a check for the amount needed. The brother had sent another letter with his assembly’s gift, and mailed it the usual way. But he realized it would take a month to reach us, and Someone told him that we needed the money. What could he do? He was unemployed, but wrote a second letter enclosing the same amount as a personal gift, and sent it by air. The day after it arrived, our landlord came to collect the rent.” Trust in God!
