I make it my mission everyday to sharpen my sword daily, can’t go out without it, can’t face my troubles without it.
What does it mean to sharpen my sword?
I dont have a sword!
To sharpen a sword one needs to put some kind of effort into it, and I am not talking about a physical weapon or sword, I am talking about the word of God
Which is sharper than any double edge sword, can be found in bookstores, or on the shelf amoungst books that we have laying around waiting to be read.
Can’t expect the sword to be sharp when no effort is applied. In order for our knowledge to be active, and our discernment to be alive, we must sharpen our knowledge, read and study the Word of God.
When we don’t read our bible but somehow wish the enemy just goes away. When we don’t put our FULL armor on, then cry when the battle gets hard.
There was a day I was fighting with words, and every word that I spoke pressed on me even harder, and the enemy was having fun with it. I was fighting with weapons of this world, arguments, anger, and rage, and satan was enjoying it. I tried to reason with a fool, when I should have known better, I allowed him to whisper, and accuse, when I should have silenced him.
We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.2 Corinthians 10:5
We don’t fight with words or knowledge or wisdom of this world, we don’t fight with weapons, of this world, we FIGHT with truth, the WORD of GOD, we fight with faith, as a mustard seed, that moves mountains, as stones that slayed, and destroyed Goliath!
The word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.Hebrews 4:12
It was THEN that I noticed my BIBLE on the corner of my table, just sitting there!
A revelation came over me, and I understood! This is why you kept me away from my bible all these years!!
“You have kept me busy with endless tasks, you have put pleasures and treasures in my path to distract me from the word of God. You have done everything in your power to get me away from my BIBLE, because when I find my identity, and purpose, I will shut you down in my life, I will discern through your lies, I will see through your scemes, and your tactics, and I will know who I am! And when I do…that will be the end of you!– My immature self decreeing LIFE
So that day I made it my mission to sharpen my sword daily, and continually study his word, as well as dig out treasures from his Holy word.
NOT only that, I’ve invited others along on my journey, to come alongside and study with me, through
Firestarter Ignite Podcast
Since then I have found my identity, my purpose, and even my assignment in the Kingdom. I shut down the plans of the enemy, see through deception, discern through his lies, and his tactics, and I train DAILY to equipt others for the battle ahead, as I move forward into all things designed for me.
