A sword can be used as both an offensive and defensive weapon. It can be used to defend against a strike, and/or it can be used to give a strike. Spiritually, it’s the same thing. A person's words can cut like a sword and be deadly. And then there’s The Sword of the Spirit, the Word of God, which is used to achieve victory in spiritual warfare. People underestimate the potentially destructive and deadly power of their words. Even more so, people underestimate the power of the Word of God to defeat the enemy and all of his army. To use the Sword of the Spirit, you must be and stay in the Spirit. Used properly, the Word of God will tear down the strongholds of the enemy. The Word of God will give you strength to endure in the battle, and the Word of God will give you victory over the enemy and your enemies in each and every one of your battles.
Dear Father God,
Thank You Lord for the Sword of the Spirit, which is Your Word. Lord, I realize that the words used against me by the enemy and my enemies can be destructive and deadly. But, I Thank You Lord God for Your Holy Spirit, which allows me to walk and stay in Your spirit and use Your Word to defeat the enemy and all of his army in each and every one of my battles.
In Jesus name I pray,
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
Ephesians 6:11, 17
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged 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.
