Slash and burn.
That’s our mantra. We can’t let evil remain in our lives if we want to live for our Lord.
Parry, thrust, and cut deep. We must slice away every wicked thing that keeps us from going all in for Jesus.
Hebrews 4:12 tells us:
“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”
The Bible is our sword. The words inside are the cutting edge of our blade. It flashes in our grasp when we stand over the challenges we face.
We need have no fear when we brandish the flaming sword of God.
This verse tells us 2 Ways of Taking Down the Devil with the Word of God.
Our 1st Way of Taking Down the Devil:
The Word pierces to the division of soul and of spirit. The truths in the Bible divide our physical impulses from the directives of the Father.
When we lift the Word, and it cuts to the core of who we are, only then can we see our choices clearly and make the right one.
We kick the devil out the door and walk wholly with Jesus.
Our 2nd Way of Taking Down the Devil:
The Word discerns the thoughts and intentions of the heart. We learn between desire and need, want and necessity, man’s way and God’s way.
The devil will try to distract us. The Bible gives us clarity, allowing us to find the right path carved through the obstacles along the way.
We put the devil to the sword when we live by the Word.
Our success is found in God, and his Word is our sword of victory.
