God’s Word is a sword

Grace and peace to you from our Lord Jesus Christ! Welcome to „Daily Word for Spiritual Edification”! We continue discussing that we should be filled with and live by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. There shouldn’t be any weariness in the life of Christians, if they continually feed on God’s Word. Yesterday we started talking about Prophet Elijah who was actually ready to give up. Despite the fact that he had just destroyed all the prophets of Baal and was mighty, after some time his heart was filled with fear and he grew spiritually weak. Elijah got tired and fell asleep because he did not have it in him to go forward; he was weary of all the fighting. He did not want to live and asked God to take his life. But God told him that he was asking for the wrong thing. God told him to eat. After he had eaten, Elijah became stronger. Every time when I read God’s Word I understand that it is spiritual food that invigorates me. I read it until I feel stronger. Every day comes with its cares and in order for me to go through it successfully I need strength. None of us know what we might face during the day; so we need to eat both physically and spiritually. We must get nourished to be strong enough in dealings with different problems we can face during our daily walk. Have you every experienced joy and encouragement after reading the Word? Have you ever felt like a victor filled with faith and power after getting filled with God’s Word? His Word truly makes us victors. God has given us His Word so that we would use it on a daily basis. We already saw that God’s Word is called the following things: • light, • water, • mirror, • and spiritual food. It also says in the Bible that God’s Word is a sword.You and I are in the middle of spiritual battle and we need the weapon that would help us fight and overcome the enemy. God’s Word is His weapon, His sword. If the Word is in us, we will always be able to easily overcome temptation, sin and enemy. If God’s Word abides in us, we will be able to say as Jesus said: «It is written! It is written! It is written!» But if you are not ‘in shape’ and do not know what is written in the Word, you won’t have the necessary courage to proclaim God’s Word over your life and situation.
«I have written to you, fathers, because you have known Him who is from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the wicked one» (1 John, 2:14).
God desires for us to be strong and overcome the wicked one. The Church must be filled with powerful people that are able to overcome all the deeds of the wicked one. But we can be strong and overcoming only when the Word of God abides in us. How can the Word abide in us, if we do not read it and if we treat it lightly, and do not really pay attention to it? The Word that abides in us makes us strong and victorious. Our strength depends not on what we know, but the word that abides in us. The more of the Word you have in you, the stronger you will be. God intends for us to be filled and nourished by God’s Word. We will continue on this tomorrow.! May God abundantly bless you! Pastor Rufus Ajiboye
