Fight With Your Double-Edged Sword

Read the following Scriptures. Ask the Lord to speak to you as you read. 

  •  2 Timothy 3:16-17  ”All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.” 
  • Hebrews 4:12  ”For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”

When fear whispers in your ear and its icy fingers try to grip your heart, fight it with Scripture!

As Paul reminds us in 2 Timothy 3:16-17, “All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness, in order that the person of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.” 

And God Himself says about His Word in Isaiah 55:11b, “It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” God’s Word is powerful! 

The Help Club for Moms made a beautiful printable with powerful Bible verses called “Scriptures to Combat Fear” to help you walk by faith through this tough season. Print it out and hang it where you will see it often- on your bathroom mirror or on your fridge. Find some more of your own, and write them somewhere that you can see them on a daily basis. God’s Words are life! Speak them over your life, and also directly to the fear that comes against you. Speak LIFE!

Prayer for Today: Father, thank You for Your words of life to us. Help us to use them in a way in which they become a part of our identity and so we can use them to overcome. Thank you for Your great love for us, Your provision for us, and Your victory for us. We love You. Amen!
