The shield is the bulkiest and probably the most uncomfortable and tiring item in the panoply, but it is the one that gives the soldier the fullest and greatest protection in battle. Paul compares it to faith.

All of this is in the context of a war we are engaged in that is being fought “against the world rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens."

For the present I want to focus on what I perceive to be the most forgotten, most neglected, most unsung, most un-remarked upon element of spiritual warfare. Do you see it? It’s embedded in the very imagery of the shield of faith, but we miss it--not because it's hidden, but because we don’t know how the Romans fought their battles and conquered the world.
