SWORD OF SPIRIT

Daily Inspiration
Only one weapon of attack; but it is good. The sword of the Spirit , which is the word of God. It subdues and mortifies evil desires, and blasphemous thoughts as they rise within. It answers unbelief and error as they assault from without. A single text well understood and rightly applied, at once destroys a temptation or an objection, and subdues the most formidable adversary.

So let us take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God. For the word of God is quick and powerful, sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even the dividing asunder, of the soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Our enemies are mighty, and we are without strength, but our Redeemer is almighty, and it is through his strength that we may overcome.

For whatsoever things were written, afore-time were written  for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
(Ephesians 6:17; Hebrews 4:12; Romans 15:4;)

The devils assaults us in the things pertaining to our souls, and labour to deface the heavenly image in our hearts. We must resolve not to yield to Satan. Resist him and he shall flee. Draw nigh to God and he will draw nigh unto you.
