There is so much power in the word of God, that we do not even realize sometimes how much power we have against our enemies. Today while reading in 1 Sam. chapter 5, I came to the fact that we have more power than we need to defeat whatever comes against us, we just have to have faith in that power. But each and every one of God's children have the same amount of power available to them. We just have to look into our hearts where the word of God is stored and use that power. Now some may have to dig and dig to find it, because you have not been into the word lately. Some of you may not have gotten to the point in your life where you read and study the word of God, some of you may be weak in your power. Not because your power is any less, but because your faith in that power is not manifested yet in your heart.
This is why some people believe so strongly in the healing power in the word of God, and believe that what they speak is what they bring about. It is because their faith in that part of God's word has manifested itself into their hearts.
Lets read in 1 Sam. what happens when the word of God is captured and the Philistines place the ark which contains the word of God in their temple with their fish God.
1 Sam. 5 v 2-4......Then they carried the ark into Dagon's temple and set it beside Dagon. When the people of Ashdod rose early the next day, there was Dagon, fallen on his face on the ground before the ark of the LORD! They took Dagon and put him back in his place. But the following morning, when they rose, there was Dagon, fallen on his face on the ground before the ark of the LORD! His head and hands had been broken off and were lying on the threshold; only his body remained.....
Philipians 2 v 9-11......Therefore, God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father....
God is clear in His word, no one will stand before Christ Jesus who is God, everyone just like this fish God will be brought down prostrate before Him and will acknowledge that He is God. AMEN!
You see false Gods can not stand before the word of the LORD. Today your enemies can not stand before the word of the LORD. Jesus has already defeated them. Your heart is like the ark of the Lord, when you have the word of God in it. There is no greater power than that which is in the word of GOD.
Lord, I pray that every believer fighting in this war, on this anniversary of that day, will use the word of the LORD to protect themselves and those around them. Father, I pray that their faith will not waiver in your word, and that they will share your word today with those who have not yet come to know you as Lord. Lord, I pray today that you send your angels out to surround our men and women today, that no harm or evil may come nigh them. I pray, that your presence be known to all today, that you are God, and your word will stand against all enemies. AMEN!
Lets each one take time today to remember those who have lost their lives during 9-11 and the war following fighting for our Country. AMEN!
