As we do not fight against flesh and blood it is important for us to know which weapons to use. The word of God is the greatest weapon given to us. So it is important to know the word of God and resist evil by pointing out : ” It is written………..”
Knowing who we are in Christ and all that our heavenly father promises us gives us the right perspective when resisting attacks in your mind.
From day 21 till day 30 I memorized the following promises of God:
-On day 21, Deuteronomy 31:6,
“Be strong and courageous because your God goes with you”
-On day 22, James 1:12,
“Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trails, he will receive the crown of life!”
-On day 23, 2 Peter 3:13,
“God has promised new heavens and a new earth where righteousness dwells”
-On day 24, Hebrews 12:28-29,
“Let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken! ”
-On day 25, Romans 4:20,
” Do not let unbelief waver concerning the promises of God but let your faith grow stronger by giving glory to God! ”
-On day 26, 1 Peter 5:10,
God promises that after sufferings he himself will restore, confirm, strengthen and establish me! So resist temptation and firm in your faith.
-On day 27, Romans 16:20,
“The God of peace will soon crush satan under your feet”
-On day 28, Revelation 2:11,
The Holy Spirit says the one who conquers will not be hurt by the second death.”
-On day 29, John 14:2,
“Jesus reassures us that in his fathers house there are many rooms that is why we could be sure that he will prepare a room for us.”
-On day 30, Psalms 5:12,
“God blesses the righteous he covers us with favor as with a shield.”
If we read the bible only as a history book we will not understand it. We will miss out on the wonderful promises of God.
