Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional August 10th – Use The Sword!

(Get The Unwanted Stuff Out Of Your Life)

TO THE BIBLE: Ephesians 6:17
“…Take…the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God”

Some years ago, I noticed a small growth in my body, but instead of fretting about it, I addressed it and said, “I cut you out of my body, in the Name of Jesus!” I said everything I knew from God’s Word, but it didn’t seem to be responding.

However, I had learnt long ago that God’s Word is more real than the world in which we live. So I kept saying the same things for a whole week, but now I addressed it differently and said, “I’ve cut you out; you’re gone!” Two weeks passed and I had somehow forgotten about it.

Then one morning, while I was in the bathroom, the growth dropped to the floor. I had cut it out of my body with the Word!

You may wonder, “How in the world did that happen?” Well, it’s very simple. The Greek word for “mouth” is “stoma,” which means “the edge of a weapon.”

So, when you confess God’s Word, in the realm of the Spirit, you’re literally cutting the devil down with a sword!

That’s because “…the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12).

No surgeon’s scalpel can work as effectively and precisely as the sword of the Spirit. So, put the Word in your mouth today and use it to cut out anything you don’t want in your body or in your life.

Mark 11:23-24; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

My body is the temple of the Holy Ghost; therefore, no sickness, disease or infirmity can lodge in it. I cut out any disease germ or growth that tries to attach itself to my body, in the Name of Jesus! And I continually glorify God in my spirit and my body as I walk in divine health today and always!

Daily Bible Reading
Romans 12:1-16, Psalms 85-88

If there’s anything contrary to God’s Word in your body, address it right now by saying, “I cut you out of my body, in the Name of Jesus!”
