And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. ~ Ephesians 6:17
Bible knowledge in your head is not a sword against the devil. It must be a word that is alive within you. So how does the Word on the pages of scripture become a spiritual sword in your hands? When you do with it what Jesus did with it, when He looked at the devil and said, “It is written.” When you speak out the scripture in faith, believing and knowing that it is God’s Word and promise to you, it becomes a living Word.
Many live defeated lives because everything else is coming out of their mouths except the Word of God. They can memorize secular things, and talk negatively, but they have not hid the Word in their heart, so it cannot come out from their mouth.
To live a victorious Christian life, It is important to always speak the Word of God concerning the issues you are dealing with in life.
The Word of God is binding in its authority; once spoken, it can’t be reversed. It is like an arrow which once shot, can’t be recalled.
In Genesis 27:1-33 Isaac was tricked into blessing his son Jacob instead of Esau, but when he found out the truth he said he couldn’t recall his blessings. If a man, made in the image of God cannot recall the words he has spoken, how much more binding is the Word which God has spoken?
Again, words are seeds and they bear fruits after their likeness; meaning, you will reap the harvest of the words you have been sowing. Be wise, sow God’s Word always!
May TESTIMONIES of good reports proceed out of your mouth this TUESDAY!
Matthew 12:37, Psalm 141:3 and Genesis 1:11.
* Ask for God’s help to use your mouth productively
* Exercise your authority over the issues of your life – begin to lose the things you want to see and bind the things you don’t want to see and they will obey you.
