Satan’s consistent weapon against us is lies. We best combat that weapon with truth.
What David says in Psalm 17 verse 13 relates to this. Speaking of the wicked who oppressed and surrounded him he said:
13 Arise, O Lord,
Confront him, cast him down;
Deliver my life from the wicked with Your sword,
He identified God’s sword as what delivered him from the wicked. What was true for David is true for us, God’s sword delivers us from the wicked. Satan and his lies are the chief wickedness we fight today and nothing will deliver us from that wickedness like God’s sword, which Hebrews 4:12 relates to His Word.
Hebrews 4:12 says:
12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword……
God’s Word is far more than just a book. It is the purest source of truth and when approached with a sincere heart and embraced with faith, it comes alive and is active against Satan’s lies, cutting through them, exposing them for what they really are, like nothing else can.
God’s Word, His sword, His Truth, is by far our greatest weapon against Satan and his lies, the wickedness that comes to try and take our life.
Just like David, we are in a battle against the wicked, Satan’s host of wicked lies and God’s sword delivers us.
