Ready for Battle

by | Mar 10, 2012 | Purpose & Identity

But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. —JAMES 1:22

You are in a spiritual battle every day you awaken on this earth; in the midst of battle there is no time to waver. The devil’s plan is to take you out and put you under. He will succeed, if you walk into the battle saying, “Well, I don’t know if I should go this way, or maybe I should go that way.”

Indecision in itself is a choice. Sooner or later your time for decisions will run out. Make a decision today that will serve you the rest of your life. Make a decision not to be a hearer only but a doer of the Word.

Decide not to let the Word of God depart from your eyes. Keep His Word in the midst of your heart and meditate on it. Hide His Word in your heart and you will be empowered to resist sin. “Thy word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against thee” (Psalm 119:11). Then, when the devil launches his vilest attack, the Word will be a lamp unto your feet (Psalm 119:105). You will stand ready for battle, fortified by the Word of God.

O Lord, I hide Thy Word in my heart, knowing that You will guide
and direct my path in the way of righteousness and truth.
Instruct me in thy Word, O Lord. Amen
