July 13

You know, you’re not going through anything that Jesus himself hasn’t been through. The specifics may be different, but the challenge isn’t. He defeated the enemy at every turn! He came after Him when He was weak and alone, but when Satan quoted scripture telling Him that He could jump from the pinnacle and the angels would save Him, Jesus reminded him, by quoting scripture, that you are not to put God to the test. Do you see what He did? Satan lied to Him and He reminded him of the truth through the use of scripture. Don’t try to battle the enemy without that portion of your armor, it’s your sword! Of all the pieces of armor, the sword of the spirit - which is the word of God, it's the only defensive weapon. It is so powerful that it is able to cut to the core and easily divide between soul and spirit, joint and marrow, and discerns the thoughts and the intentions of the heart. Brandish your weapon when the enemy starts telling you that you are unworthy, no good, ugly, unredeemable, or when he tries to instill fear, or haunts you with your past. Remember what God says about you - you are worthy, you are good, you are beautiful, I’ve redeemed you, and you are my child!

Heb 2:18  For because he himself has suffered when tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.

Eph 6:17  and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,

Mat 4:6  and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written, “‘He will command his angels concerning you,’ and “‘On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone.’”
Mat 4:7  Jesus said to him, “Again it is written, ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.’”

Heb 4:12  For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
