Scriptures: Ephesians 6:17;Revelations 1:16; 2:16; 19:15
“For the word of God is quick and powerful and sharper than any two-edged 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)
The word of God is the beginning and end of all things. It is no coincidence the armor of God begins with Truth (the Word) and ends with the same in the form of the sword.
In every battle, the sword is a tool for both offense and defence. With it the warrior executes his enemies and vanquishes them. It may be two-edged or one-edged as a machete but ours is a two-edged type – the Word of God.
This sword is sharper than any other sword and goes into unimaginable depths of this universe to execute judgement.
This sword is the rhema –the Spoken Word of God powered by the Holy Ghost. It is the declaration of the Truth we know that condemns the enemy and makes foil his ploys in prayer and praises as well as worship. That’s why Satan always targets the truth we know, to steal it or corrupt it to our demerit because in them we know he is defeated and all his accusations and threats fail miserably.
How then do we use this Sword of the Spirit? We speak it! Yes, we declare it in our warfare against any adversary tactic and dart. We confess the truth daily and meditate upon it in our daily walk. This is how your words take on power for you speak the oracles of God upon any situation and the schemes of the enemy come crumbling down.
Prayer: Dear Father, I thank you for the Truth, thy word is truth and this truth liberates me from any shackles of the enemy. I thank you for the work of Christ and my standing in you for combat in Jesus’ name. Amen.
