SWORD OF THE SPIRIT


SWORD OF THE SPIRIT

Ephesians 6:17 (NKJV) And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God

Now, here we are with our offensive weapon.  You see, every piece of the armor that we have put on so far has been defensive.  They have protected each part of us.  Now we are given a sword: The sword of the Spirit.  The Bible tells us that this weapon is the Word of God.

As we get the Word into our heart and speak it with our mouth, as we take God’s Word and make it sharp within us, it causes the enemy to flee. Look at how it states it in Hebrews 4:12-13, “For the Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.”

God’s Word on our lips in faith will destroy the works of the enemy in our lives, and the lives of the people that we are praying for.  God’s Word does not return void, it always accomplishes what it was set out to do.  When we pick up this powerful weapon, the Word, we need to believe it in our hearts and say it with our mouths, and we will see the manifestation of what we are saying. 

This is the way we got saved.  Look with me at Romans 10:8-10, “But what does it say? ‘The Word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart ‘ (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

So today, get His Word within you, and then release it with your mouth.  You will see the devil, and his demons, flee as you use your sword in a powerful way.

CONFESSION: Today, I speak God’s Word and I watch as the devil flees.  God’s Word never returns without doing what it set out to do, when I speak it by faith.
