Daily Devotional - A Two-edged Sword

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 
—Hebrews 4:12 NKJV
Second Corinthians 10:4–5 teaches us that casting down imaginations, thoughts, reasoning, and theories not in agreement with God's Word requires us to use our spiritual weapons, not physical. When we speak the Word of God out of our mouths, it becomes a two-edged sword—defeating the enemy with one edge and opening the blessings of heaven with the other. There are many other defensive weapons protecting us from attack, but the Word is offensive—it defeats the enemy.
Like any other principle in God's Word, this will not work if it is not applied. Just knowing this information doesn't change anything. Faith needs to be active. It must be released. We can release God's Word through prayer, confessing His Word out loud, and taking God-inspired action.
Power Thought: I am armed for battle with a two-edged sword—the Word of God.
