“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17)
Carrying on from the previous post Why Satan Hates You, we can renew our mind to God’s Word by reading it, hearing it, studying it and doing it.
The word hearing in the above verse in the original Greek actually means rhema – the spoken Word of God. So when you give of yourself to God’s written Word, He speaks to you and confirms that written Word – the Bible – thereby helping you apply more of “the measure of faith” that He has already given you.
Remember, the Word of God is one the weapons in your spiritual armour. It’s the sword – you can wield it to defend yourself and others from Satan. You can also use it to attack and take the fight to the Enemy, because attack is often the best form of defence. But to be able to wield any sword effectively, you must practise using it. How much more, then, the Word of God! And when you practise enough, you will develop a reputation of being a ‘commando for Christ’ working for his Commander-in-Chief, the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ!
