Job 41 - In verse 15 God shares a lot about our choice of Shields.



So today on Bob nerves were no wonder a minute about shields or scales on a month you never put those two things together but were blessed as we continue in Job 41 five with work God is happy lately is just right here in Job 41. It seems like there's so much to understand about our enemy.

It certainly infiltrated us from So in Job 41 five it says his scales are his pride shut up together with the close seal and never thought about it, you know, in Job 41 God is describing the Leviathan to Job, which is clearly in several places a reference directly to Satan, the Dragon himself, and so I don't know if you ever considered this, they were supposed to put on the full armor of God in Ephesians 6, and one of those things that were supposed to put on as a shield of faith above all a put on the shield of faith well here we have this word scales but when you look at it in Hebrew. It is more often translated shield and as I began to look at it. I can see that what Satan has going on here is a way of protecting himself and I think all of us have a choice of putting on the shield of faith in Christ or the shield of faith in ourselves and quite often that becomes a masking and actually quite often it becomes oppose right, act a certain way in order to protect myself.

Sometimes I act in anger to protect myself sometimes I scoff at people in order to protect myself.

I'm all different ways of protecting myself with my particular shield but when you look at this word in Hebrew.

It's a beautiful beautiful word of what the shield was meant to be, which is almost like the word of God is like. Jesus himself, his greatness is our faith.

It's like the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom like your shield Christ as your shield. You are shield is, but if we don't choose that one working to protect ourselves in our pride and so it's interesting Job 41 five. His scales are his pride shut up together with the close seal effect later on.

It talks about how it's airtight. The scales are airtight and, if you met many people that do just clearly in a walking and a false identity, but you can tell, their alibis airtight. You can get underneath that skin. In fact, that's why a lot of people refer to Leviathan as a crocodile because it has that kind of skin that is so thick and so shielded you really can't get underneath it to see what is going on. Well yes that's a picture of Satan but also it's a picture of his children.

The children of pride which I can be and not be vulnerable and not let anybody get in to close and all those things really God's giving us here a picture of how we take on these scales. The shields that where we protect ourselves right where I act like I know stuff I don't know where I act like I care about things I don't really care about or with recommended certain people say are you doing today Robbie on fine everything flying at work fine families fine. Well, honestly, those are scales and the more that I rely on them, the more they grow together in this tight seal so that even God can't get to me so you know, I've been thinking about if I go to Ephesians 6 I'm supposed to put on this armor I first got a take off all these other scales that I've allowed to grow in my life and so you know. Clearly, this is another place where God is telling me Robbie.

You can't do this on your own, you can't take off all the scales without my help, and so would you join me today in prayer that God will help us see where we've been scaling up and trust his armor rather than faith in herself as we don't want to be the king of brides kids. I'm just takes it for listed
