ARMED WITH THE WORD OF GOD
SCRIPTURE: Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. – James 4:7
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Do not wait for problems to arise before looking for the Word of God.
I once heard a story of what a soldier did during the Nigeria Civil War. In the course of the battle, the enemy threw a hand grenade into the camp of soldiers where this particular soldier was. Instead of allowing the grenade to land, explode and kill everyone, he caught it and threw it back at the enemies. The bomb exploded midway and blasted his hand, but everybody in his camp was saved. What a heart!
God’s Word is a Shield that returns arrows to the sender. Just as the soldier threw the grenade back to the enemy, you can load yourself with Word ammunitions in the form of general purpose machine gun bullets and rocket propelled grenades, so that when the devil throws anything at you, you can throw back ten or more Word bullets at him.
Beloved, do not wait for problems to arise before looking for the Word of God. Instead, be loaded with God’s Word ready to explode against the onslaught of the devil. Be armed with God’s Word all the time.
Remember this: Do not wait for problems to arise before looking for the Word of God.
1. Do not allow a day to pass without studying the Word of God.
2. Always meditate on the Word of God.
3. Endeavour to listen to messages preached by anointed men of God.
PRAYER: O LORD, equip me with Your Word. Open my eyes to see wondrous things out of Your Word, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
