After a week of struggle I remember a question a young man asked me some time ago “how do I stay away from sin and the enemy?” You may have asked the same thing. The Word of God has the power to protect you and keep you from constantly sinning, it is living and active. The Word is powerful when applied to our lives! There is the written Word of God, the Bible, and there is the spoken Word of God which can come in many ways, but its foundation and principles are biblical.
The Bible tells us that God’s Word came through a burning bush, a still small voice, and even a donkey! He may speak to your heart through a friend or through a worship song. He may speak through creation. When He does speak, your spirit knows it. There is confirmation in your heart and mind. God’s Word is always truth, and truth always sets you free. When you hold God’s Word close to your heart, it is a shield of protection against sin and the enemy.
Today, meditate on God’s Word. Focus on it, think about it, and say it out loud. When you focus on God’s Word, you will move forward in God’s plan. You will be strengthened to live as an overcomer, and set free from planned habitual sin, and the enemy will flee in every area of your life! Hallelujah!
“Your Word have I laid up in my heart, that I might not sin against You.”(Psalm 119:11, AMP)
Pray With Me
Lord, thank You for Your Word which strengthens me and protects me against sin and the enemy. Father, thank You for speaking truth to my heart. Help me hear Your voice more clearly, so I can live a life pleasing to You, hating sin and loving Jesus. God, I pray for those with the Coronavirus that all needs will be met and their lives will be spared. I also pray that blame will go to its rightful place – not to You Lord, but to sin and its source, the devil, in Jesus’ Name! Amen.
