The Word of God is like a sword, the Bible says it has the power to protect you and keep you from sin. The Word of God is powerful in our lives, itâ€™s living and active like food! Did you know that the Word of God when spoken causes evil to flee?
In the Bible, Godâ€™s Word comes in written form, however His Word can come in many other ways. In Scripture, His Word came through a burning bush, a still small voice, and even a donkey! He might speak to your heart through a friend or through a worship song. He may speak to you through creation. But when God does speak, your spirit knows it. There is confirmation in your inner man. You know itâ€™s the voice of Jehovah because He always speaks truth, and truth always sets you free!
Today, put Godâ€™s Word in your heart, so it will prompt you and protect you when sin and evil comes knocking at your heartâ€™s door. Meditate on His Word day and night. Let Godâ€™s truth transform you and lead you every day of your life!
â€œYour Word have I laid up in my heart that I might not sin against You.â€Â (Psalm 119:11, AMP)Â
Yahweh, thank You for Your Word which strengthens and protects me from all evil, including my propensity to sin. Father, thank You for speaking Your truth to my heart. God, teach me and help me know how to hear Your voice more clearly, so I will know Your will and live a life that is pleasing to You, in Christâ€™s Name! Amen.
