I have written to you, young men, Because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, And you have overcome the wicked one. – 1 John 2:14
The Word of God is the creative force which created this world and everything in it. It is the rock solid foundation on which we need to build our life. As Jesus said, he who listens to my Word and obeys it is like a man who built his house on the rock, the storms will come and waters will rise, but the house will not be shaken (Matthew 7:24).
The Word of God has the presence of God, when it comes and abides in your heart it changes everything in your life. The Word abiding in our heart creates God kind of Faith and there is nothing in this physical realm which can prevail over this kind of Faith. This Faith overcomes everything in the world.
The devil will do everything to keep us down, he can throw sickness, poverty and every other form of oppression against us, but we will not be moved because we are founded on the Word of God. According to the above verse, we have already overcome the wicked on. The Word of Christ dwells in us and we are strong and have overcome the evil one.
Jesus said, “If you abide in me and my words abide in you, you will ask what you desire and it shall be done for you.” (John 15:7) We abide in His Word by grabbing hold of His promises in our heart and trust in Him. As you Trust in Him, it forms a wall of protection around you and the devil cannot touch you. As you grow in your Trust in Him by letting His Word abide in you and meditating on it, the wall of protection gets bigger and stronger and the weapons of the enemy cannot penetrate that wall.
King Solomon said, “Keep His Word in the midst of your heart for they are life to those who find them and health to all their flesh. (Proverbs 4:21,22). Meditating on Scriptures about healing and that Jesus bore our sickness on His body and by His stripes we are healed will manifest healing in your physical bodies.
Make the Word of God your high priority. Nothing is more important in life than to know Him and His purpose for your life through His Word. Spend time in His Word every day, do not ignore it. Meditate on the Word throughout the day, let the Spirit of God reveal the wisdom in the Word for your specific situation. He wants you to be successful and overcome every giant in your life. You do that by abiding in His Word.
Build your life on the Word of God and prevail over the devil.
