Battle Gear, Your Sword
Ephesians 6:17 tells us to, "Take the helmet of salvation and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the WORD OF GOD." NIV
For the Word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double edged Sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts (which are protected by the Helmet of Salvation) and attitudes of the heart. Heb. 4:12 NIV
He made my mouth like a sharpened Sword, Is.49:2 NIV
I could go on adding scriptures referring to the tongue, mouth, lips, words but I'll just use these
In preparing for Battle, we as trained warriors must make sure we have our sword with us. How else are we going to fight the enemy?
Every other piece of our Battle Gear is defensive, designed to protect a certain part of our body.
The Sword, however is offensive. With our Sword, the Word of God, we attack the enemy's lies and cut them apart.
With our Sword we can offensively attack the enemy in regard's to our household.
What ever our battle is, with the sword we can attack, and allow God to bring the victory in our lives by the effective use of His Word which is Alive and Active.
So many times we let our speech line up with what we see with our natural eyes rather than allowing the Spirit to speak through us to attack and defeat the enemy with what we say.
Using God's word to attack a situation is opening the door for God Himself to fight the battle for us. His word will not return void, and when we use it in accordance with our manual (Bible) victory is promised. If we can get out of the way and let God be God.
When we speak to a situation fully aware the Word is Active, knowing it will bring about God's perfect will we can stand firm in our Battle Gear resting in the sweet victory that is ours.
With our helmet firmly in place to protect our mind, all we hear is God's word, and in turn all we speak is God's word. Ripping to shreds the lies of the enemy, who, by the way, wants you separated from God, so you have no power.
Filling our selves with God's Word is the only way to be able to sound the Battle Cry when we go on the attack.
If we are fighting disease, wayward children, foreclosures, unemployment, repossessions, immorality, anything, being filled with the Word of God is the only way we can be assured of victory.
Grasping this one concept will change your prayer life.
GOD'S WORD IS ALIVE
Something has to happen to each one of us in order to fully grasp that sentence.
Yes, we know the Scriptures, we've heard it preached, we get goosebumps when we pray, we cry, we sob, we lay face down, we get on our knees, we walk around, we anoint with oil, we shake our fists, we repeat written prayers, we do do do and it seems our prayers don't go past the ceiling.
Not that any of that is bad or of no account, but if it's not working something is missing.
We have to grow to the place where we can, with out a doubt, with no reservations, no "if it's God's will", no tears, no dramatics, just KNOW, with every fiber of our being GOD'S WORD IS ALIVE AND ACTIVE!!! Happy Dance here!.
At that point, when we speak, all Heaven will jump and move to align itself with what we've just said.
How much more power can a girl want or need??
Are you excited yet??? I am!
Put your Helmet on, open your mouth and sound the Battle Cry over what ever situation you are facing.
Watch the Sword of the Spirit, the very Word of God, slice and dice through the enemy's lines and hand you the victory.
It's His word it HAS to come to pass, it HAS to bring victory.
You have to be so trained and prepared for battle that the very sight of the enemy's activity sends you into a Battle Cry that shakes Heaven and moves mountains.
All I can say is drench yourselves in the Word, it's life, it's power and it's victory.
