2 Corinthians 10:3-4;"We are human, but we don't wage war with human plans and methods. We use God's mighty weapons, not mere worldly weapons, to knock down the devil's strongholds."
It has been inspirational spending time in the Old Testament this past while and, as we speak, I am just heading out of the Book of Genesis. Often when one speaks of reading the Word of God we consider the Old Testament as old news and a ‘nice to know’ but not to revisit. But the Word of God, both Old and New Testament, is one of the mighty weapons Paul speaks of here. And the ‘sword of the Spirit’ is not only for deflecting a blow from the enemy, but it is also for inflicting one. This is a place where the devil doesn't want you to be. He isn’t fond of being attacked, because when you’re on the defence not knowing the truth, then he is in control. But if you really know the Word of God and the truth, then you’re in control. Which position would you prefer to be in? May you determine to read the Word of God and see it as part of your spiritual armoury, as well as deepening your relationship with Christ, as opposed to a ‘nice to know’ but not an absolute necessity?
