“For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword…”

With that piece of scripture we can feel confident enough to go up against the schemes of the devil anytime. We have the Word of God. What a powerful weapon to fight the enemy with!

But what about using the “weapon” to protect ourselves?

For example:

Proverbs 15:1 says, in part, “a soft answer turneth away wrath…” Most likely there have been many arguments fought with “I am going to kill them with kindness”. Answers are spoken quietly but turmoil rages within.

How about taking that same scripture and allowing it “to protect you” instead of “fight for you”? Truly speak a soft answer with a gentle spirit. Not to win an argument, but in obedience to the Word. In doing so you will find peace for yourself. The wrath within you vanishes. You can see more clearly, the heat of the moment passes and you are blessed by the overwhelming presence of your God.

Use your weapon wisely.
