The Word

The girls and I are doing a devotional called "Speak Love" by Annie Downs. It's worth the buy. That and the book that goes with it by the same name. I say it all the time ... Speak Life. Speak Love. Speak Life. Speak Love. Speak Life. Bless and do not curse. (Romans 12:14). Today's devotional was about wielding your sword. What sword you ask? The Sword of the Spirit. (Eph. 6:17). It's the same way Jesus fought the enemy in the desert after He fasted 40 days ... with the Word. (Matt. 4:1-11) He didn't fight physically with the enemy of our souls and His, He fought with the Word of God. How will we live by the standard set in the Word if we aren't reading it? God's will for our lives is all right there. In the Bible. And, how does one fight with the Word, you ask? Read it. Memorize it. Post it on your mirror. Post it in your house. Read it some more. Memorize it. Get it inside you so it comes out of you exactly when you need it. Apply it to your life. Eat it. The Word changes every thing. Knowing the Word, it's a love affair with Jesus. Who better?
