Today’s Scripture: Ephesians 6:17, NIV
Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
Today’s Word by Joel Osteen 29th January 2023
It’s easy to let difficulties and disappointments and opposition wear us down to where we lose our fight and passion. But you can’t be passive and just take whatever comes your way. You’re in a fight against forces that are trying to keep you from your destiny, and your weapon is God’s Word. When you have His promises coming out of your mouth, you are swinging your sword.
When you swing, God will fight for you. When you declare His promises, angels go to work, forces of darkness are pushed back, negative situations will turn around. But as long as you’re passive and saying, “I never get any good breaks. I’ll probably never get well,” your sword is in its sheath. You have to get your sword out and say, “Father, thank You that no weapon formed against me will prosper. Thank You that Your being for me is more than the world being against me.” You know what you just did? You swung your sword.
Are you swinging your sword? You have to initiate God’s power.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for giving me the sword of Your Word to defeat the enemy. Thank You that I can believe and speak Your promises to initiate Your power. I declare that no weapon formed against me will prosper. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
