The Sword of the Spirit


If you want to win your daily spiritual battles, you will need to include the sixth piece of God’s divine protective armor, the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God.” Ephesians 6:13 – 18 lists all the pieces that God has provided to protect us from the enemy.

The sword of the spirit is the only piece that is an offensive weapon that God has included as part of the armor. We must have no doubt that God’s divine Word is absolutely perfect without fault.

It is with this same Word that Jesus applied to defeat Satan when He was tempted in the wilderness. Three times Jesus replied to Satan “it is written” (Mt. 4:1-11). To see how the sword of the spirit is used open your Bible to Matthew 4 and watch Jesus do battle with the enemy. The enemy comes and says, "If you’re the Son of God, turn these stones to bread." Jesus’ response was It is written, "Man won’t live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.”

As Christians we must know the Word and be trained in how to use it as a mighty spiritual weapon. The better you know the Word the easier it is to detect the lies of Lucifer, reject his temptations, and win spiritual victory for yourself and others.

If we are reading our Bibles every day, finding and memorizing verses to meet the conditions and needs in our lives, and claiming promises that will counter every trial or temptation, the devil will become discouraged with us because he can't win. He can’t do much with people who keep stabbing him with Scripture.

Although the believer is assured of victory in this war because of Jesus’ victory on the Cross, we must actively engage our minds in the spiritual struggle for daily victory. Satan will constantly defeat all who are not equipped with the spiritual armor of God. We need supernatural armor to simply stand our ground against Satan. God has provided us His Holy Spirit and His spiritual armor that we might stand in the strength of His might. Is your armor intact and are you ready for the fight?

Remember to put on the whole protective armor of God every day.
1) the belt of truth, (2) the breastplate of righteousness, (3) the shoes of peace, (4) the shield of faith, and (5) the helmet of salvation (6) THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT – the word

God Bless!
