Imagine gripping a superhero tool in our hands, something long, slender, shiney and sharp. We swing the weapon with power and force, slicing the air back and forth.
“Take that, you nasty darkness!”
We glare at our enemy, holding a stare that only victors gather.
Our feet-shoulder-width-apart stance is impressive. It speaks strength and confidence.
Nothing will move us.
My sword – your sword – and the Giver of them assure we have the upper hand in this battle.
We thrust our sword-like weapons into the air, our backs stretch tall. It’s a victory gesture.
Like a camera flash, the metal on each blade gleams its shine, glistening with a crisp and clean confidence.
Darkness, like a piece of paper, falls at our feet – sliced and cut to pieces. It has no ground to stand on, only listless, pointless places to fall.
This is you and I…
…with the Word of God.
We are warriors holding swords – the Word of God. And it’s powerful.
Do you ever confess scripture?
You know – take a scripture and insert your name or personalize it, just you talking to God? The above one hails from PS 108.
It’s a keeper.
Confessing scripture is like inserting yourself in the story above, swinging that weapon of godly warfare with might. Swing the sword mightily by reading it, saying it, or praying it to God just the way it is. Enjoy!
