Battles will inevitably come my way. Battles with my spouse, my children, coworkers, friends and neighbors. But it’s really not them I am fighting. I am fighting the enemy of my soul. The one who wants to steal, kill and destroy me. So how do I fight something I cannot see?
I fight it with the Word of God. It is my greatest weapon. The enemy must flee at the Word of God. Jesus teaches us this when He was in the wilderness for 40 days and 40 nights. Jesus was weak and alone and the enemy wanted to overcome Him with lies, but Jesus simply fought back by quoting the Word of God. It’s more powerful than anything in this world, for it will not return void. When it is spoken, it must come to pass.
What weapon are you using to combat the enemy?
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12
“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12
