For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
There is nothing more powerful that the Word of God. It was what Jesus used to defend himself from Satan in the wilderness. Matthew 4:1-4, 11 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry. Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’” Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.
Paul describes it as the sword of Truth when talking to the people in Ephesus. Ephesians 6:17.. and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
We can use His Word not only for protection but to advance His kingdom, lead others to Christ! The scriptures tell us that Jesus is the Word of God. John 1:1-5 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
How blessed we are to know that we have been given a great gift by God! His son, Jesus, our savior!
Father, blessed be your name! Thank you for your son, your Word, your love for us! May your Will renew our spirit and transform us to be like Jesus! In Jesus name, Amen!
