I have often heard the Bible described as a love letter from God to us. While it is absolutely a story of God’s love, grace, and redemption, it is also described as a powerful weapon. It is a weapon the enemy does not want us to use. The more illiterate we are, the more he can use it against us.
That’s right, the devil knows the Bible. In the garden, he twisted God’s words to trick Eve into sinning. In the desert, he tried to trick Jesus into sinning, using Scripture. He knows the Bible, and he tries to use it against us more than we may realize.
We must be fully trained in how to use this weapon in our spiritual warfare. Don’t let the enemy be better at using your weapon than you are. Get in the Word. Read it daily. Study it. Pray it. Meditate on it. Know it. Live it. Let it guide your every step, every word, every thought, every action.
Psalm 119 is full of incredible verses about the importance and power of God’s Word in our lives. Here are two of my favorite verses from the chapter. What are some of yours?
Psalm 119:11 “Thy Word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against thee.”
Psalm 119:105 “Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.”
