Daily Devotional- Go On The Offensive
“For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.” – Hebrews 4:12
Armor of God: Ephesians 6:10-18
The Temptation of Jesus: Matthew 4:1-11
When looking at the armor of God the sword is the only offensive piece of armor that is used for the purpose of fighting. The rest of pieces of armor are for our personal defense. Victory over the enemy is possible by using the sword. If we try and fight demonic thoughts with human thoughts it won’t bring us victory. When we fight those thoughts with the sword, God’s Word, we can have that victory. Think of it this way: every time you are speaking the Scripture you are stabbing satan. And in due time he will flee from you just as he did from Jesus.
