October 28–Sword of the Spirit

Sword of the Spirit--Word of GodIn the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us,
John 1:1,14 NKJV

Jesus is the Word of God.  Therefore Jesus is the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. (Ephesians 6:17)

When we are dressed in the Armor of God we are covered completely by Jesus and we can stand firm in Him who is Truth, Prince of Peace, Righteousness, Author of Salvation and Faith and the Word of God.
We can hold Him up as our sword against the evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against the mighty powers in this dark world and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12 NLT.  
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart
. Hebrews 4:12 KJV

All these demonic forces are no match for Jesus Christ for He has already claimed victory as He defeated them on Calvary’s cross.  So we need to clothe ourselves in the Full Armor of God which is Jesus Christ.

Prayer:  Dear God, when I think about all the demonic forces that surround me daily in the unseen world, this dark world, and in heavenly places, I am so thankful I know You and can wear Your Armor daily for protection.  Thank You God for Your Son who is the Armor that covers me daily and helps me to firmly stand in truth and shine His light forth into this dark world to defeat evil.

Today:  Hold up the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God and stand firm in the victory Christ has won.
