FOR THE WORD OF GOD IS LIVING AND ACTIVE. SHARPER THAN ANY DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD, IT PENETRATES EVEN TO DIVIDING SOUL AND SPIRIT, JOINTS AND MARROW; IT JUDGES THE THOUGHTS AND ATTITUDES OF THE HEART
Precious One, how I love to communicate with you through My written and spoken Words, when you invite My Counsel into your own mind.
My Words are sharper than any sword. They have the ability to penetrate deeply into the many voices of your mind, dividing good from evil. My Words show, sort, and sever the words of the father-of-lies from your heart, before they kill, steal, and destroy. But, you need to allow My active Words to enter into the negative, destructive thoughts of your mind…and cut them out. You need to invite My living Words to access the abandonment, shame, and rejection in your heart from the father-of-lies…and slice them out. You need to let My powerful Words infiltrate the sorrow, despair, anger, and jealousy in your emotions…and carve them out.
BUT JESUS ANSWERED HIM, SAYING, ‘IT IS WRITTEN, ‘MAN SHALL NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE, BUT BY EVERY WORD OF GOD’
Child, you need to become dependent on My daily Words to you. Then, the Sword of the Spirit will slice the darkness from your mind, cut the hopelessness from your heart, and sever the brokenness from your life.
TAKE THE HELMET OF SALVATION AND THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, WHICH IS THE WORD OF GOD
Which place in your heart would you like God’s living and active Words to penetrate? What do you need severed by the Sword of the Spirit?
Know that the living and active Words of God will affect anything with which they come in contact. They will determine and detect, estimate and evaluate, and sever. They are effective, sufficient, and practical. The Sword of the Spirit will cause a miracle in your heart.
PRAYER: Sword of the Spirit, come and penetrate my heart and my mind. Evaluate my emotions and search them for negative, destructive beliefs from the father-of-lies that leave me hopeless, helpless, and powerless. Then, do Your severing work in my heart, so I may be set free to worship You in Truth.
Maintain an Awareness
Discipline, the training to enter God’s Holiness, cannot be exercised AFTER we have already entered a route of escape to resort to a sinful solution.
