USING THE WORD AS A WEAPON
Ephesians 6 vs
17. ¶And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.~|KJV|
THE SUBJECT of spiritual warfare has to be dealt with as God intends it. Thanks be to the Spirit who inspired the Apostle to give us details of the armoury to engage in spiritual warfare (Eph 6:10-17). First, we must understand this truth that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood (Eph 6:12). In other words, the weapons of our warfare are not carnal or fleshy (2 Cor 10:4). Since this warfare isn’t fleshy, it means it doesn’t need physical methods but spiritual methods. To think fleshly of this warfare will always lead you to fight fleshly.
The scripture has prescribed the major armours to put on in order to wrestle in victory. Instead of many to concentrate on the armours to put on and win the battle in times of challenges, many are throwing words and shouting in the air, neglecting the prescribed armoury. The greatest weapon to wage any war is the SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, which is called the word of God. Thus, the Spirit has a sword to wage war through you; and that sword is the Word which God speaks. God’s word is the knowledge base for all sweet victories. Cherished one, to wage any war on ignorance, poverty, sickness, death, curses without first knowing what God says about it equals to failure.
The word is the main tool against your “opponents”. And get this, the word is an all inclusive weapon; it is like fire; it is also like a hammer (Jer 5:14; 23:29) ; it’s a tool to build, break, uproot and destroy anything that opposes the knowledge of God. For instance, when a sinner receives the gospel, light comes directly as weapon to “destroy” darkness.
When you receive the word about healing, it goes right away to destroy sickness. *It has a self-regulating power. For God’s word is active and powerful (Heb 4:12).* Beloved, get to know the word, allow it to dwell in you richly; Release it through persistent prayer in faith against all the fiery darts of the enemy. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you always.
In the Name of Jesus Christ, I am more than a conqueror. I have won the victory by the word of God. I use His Word as a weapon against all the fiery darts of the enemy. I keep anything ungodly under subjection by the power behind the word of God in Jesus’ Name. Hallelujah!
Enjoy A Fruitful Monday !
