I was talking about how powerful the Word is and when we understand how dangerous we are when we begin to speak it out loud in faith, we become this frightening piece of humanity to the enemy. I just love this analogy.
A FRIGHTENING PIECE OF HUMANITY.
How many times have you allowed the enemy to beat you up? Pummel you with lies and doubt? How many times has he taken you to the floor with his unrelenting torment?
Well....I do believe it's time we turn the tables on him. How do we do that? We get the Living Word inside of us.....we study it, memorize it, internalize it and make it a part of who we are. That way, when the enemy comes...we are ready. Battle ready. We pull out the Word and begin to slash apart his lies and fears and tormenting schemes. We frighten him for a change.....with the power of the Holy Spirit inside of us.
This is a new mentality for some of us. Ask God to begin to show you how the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead lives in you. Ask God for revelation of His power inside of you. What does it look like? Sound like? Who am I because of it?
Daughter....you were not created to live underneath the enemy's foot. You were created to rule and reign over the enemy because of the sacrifice Jesus made on the Cross. He earned the right FOR YOU to take His name and use it. He gives the power of His name to you to use. Don't waste it! Use it!
The Word is your greatest weapon. The enemy simply CANNOT stay in the presence of the Living Word. So let it begin to come out of your mouth. Use it in praise to God. Use it in warfare against the enemy. Use it as adoration and proclamation of how good God is.
Watch the enemy scatter. Watch him begin to dread it when you open your mouth.
Let the truth be this.....when the enemy sees you, he sees a woman who loves God, serves God, speaks the Word of God and does not go down easily. That my friend is a frightening piece of humanity....all because of Jesus!
