Good Morning Warrior!
It’s The Lord’s Day HALLELUJAH!
Word for the Day:
“The Ultimate Protection”
Text: Genesis 3:1
“Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”
“The Ultimate Protection,” of God’s Word, is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
The devil’s attack against Eve and Adam in the Garden of Eden began with a Question of Doubt: “Has God indeed said...”
The devil’s attack against Our Commander Jesus in the wilderness began with a Question of Doubt also: “If You are the Son of God command that these stones become bread.” (Matt.4:3).
The devil attacks you and I the same way; beginning with a Question framed with Doubt, questioning God’s Word.
Listen up Warrior! Our Sword the Word of God is The Ultimate Protection against any and all attacks of the devil! Oooh Rah!
God teaches you and I how to defend ourself against sin with His Word; our Principal Weapon!
God’s Word to Adam was clear:
“And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat;
but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” (Gen.2:16-17).
Adam’s Responsibility was to communicate God’s Word clearly to Eve as his wife. Apparently, by Eve’s response to satan, Adam did a poor job of this.
Eve misquoted God’s Word, and then ADDED TO what God said: “neither shall you touch it lest you die.” She didn’t even know the name of the Tree! She called it the tree in the midst of the garden; not The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.
Eve was not properly equipped to respond to satan’s attack because she was not familiar with her Ultimate Protection of God’s Word.
And Adam was standing there! Instead of covering his wife with his authority, and interrupting her misquote of God’s Word - and using God’s Word accurately; he remained silent and shared equally in this sin.
God has given us His Word the Bible as His tool for spiritual training that builds us up inside the same way training and exercise build us up on the outside. We must be consistent in reading, chewing, and practicing the Word of God in our daily life. This will ensure our readiness to effectively engage our spiritual enemy at all times!
We’re going to face spiritual Giants on the Battlefields of life, so we must be very familiar with our Principal Weapon, the Sword of God’s Word.
Rehearse The Warrior’s Creed regularly; put it on your bathroom mirror, on your refrigerator, or on your wall in the house!
Your Ultimate Protection is God’s Word - Learn It, Know It, and Use It every day! Oooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
