In 1 Samuel 13, we read about a time when there were no blacksmiths in Israel. The Philistines, the enemies of the Israelites, made sure that no one in Israel had the capability to make swords or spears that could be used against them in battle.
Our enemy today, Satan, would like nothing better than for us to be unarmed and defenseless. He does whatever he can to take away any weapons we might use to defeat him.
