ACHIEVE GREATNESS WITH YEMI AND BIMBO DAVIDS
Day 5 March 2020
Plunge the Sword
“Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” Ephesians 6:17.
One of the best ways to fight satan and his demons is to know the Word of God, memorize it, and pull out the sword of the Spirit when you need it. It is the only offensive weapon in the armour of God (Eph. 6:10-17). When Jesus was being confronted by Satan in the wilderness, He used the Word of God as a weapon to rebuke the enemy. Satan loves to twist Scripture and to take it out of context. Jesus quoted all of His verses within context. Satan used every Scripture he quoted out of context (Matthew 4:1-11)
We are to be imitators of Christ. We must fight Satan with the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. To fight Satan, we must fill our minds and hearts with God’s word so much that satan’s lies stick out when they are amongst the layers and layers of God’s truth. When a wall is completely white, you instantly see when a black smudge appears. When Satan and his demons begin to tempt and whisper false lies to us, we will only recognize their evil ways if we know God’s ways and our minds are filled with his pure truth.
Remember this: To fight satan: submit to God, believe the Bible, proclaim God’s truth, speak only to God, listen only to God, let God’s word speak on your behalf, and satan will flee from you because he must listen to God. We must fight Satan, but we must only fight him through the power of God proclaimed through His Word.
Daily digest: Satan’s greatest weapon is man’s ignorance of God’s word.
Prayer: Lord, I am praying your word to fight and win the spiritual battle I’m facing today. Amen
