Wielding the Sword of the Spirit

Staring into space, many stumble, ignoring the sword’s power.
As the enemy comes to seduce and destroy, they stand humiliated.
Unable to wield a sword with such potential, they stand intimidated.
Like babes, nursing mother’s milk, they stand naked before their enemy.
What will it take to pick up this powerful weapon and use it, they muse?

Tired and worn down from the enemy’s tactics, they consider.
Hearing God’s word is sharper than a two-edged sword; they’re drawn.
Pondering whether to pick it up or not, they consider where to begin.
How to train hands for war, putting the enemy to flight, they ponder.
Having begun in the Spirit, asking for wisdom, they’re drawn to its power.

Line upon line, here a little, there a little, it begs to be assessed.
As honey touches the lips, the soul longs to be nurtured and caressed.
With words fitly spoken, His word fills with wisdom from above.
As the Spirit guides through the pages, their minds are renewed.
As present truth establishes, new strength with confidence exudes.

No longer intimidated, swords drawn, they cut asunder.
Words of wisdom flowing freely, his tactics no longer plunder.
Wisdom from above filling heart and mind, the sword sharpens.
Without truth, nowhere to stand, truth slays Satan’s empty insults.
Sharper than two-edged swords, Word and Spirit slay as they consult.

Hebrews 4:12

For the word of God is living, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and quick to discern the thoughts and intents of the heart.


Heavenly Father, I ask that you give me a heart like David, who loved Your word and what it could do for him. Help me to pick up my sword daily as I hide its contents away in my heart. Help me never take it for granted. Give me the heart to study to show myself approved as a skilled swordsman who is unafraid of the enemy’s devices.
