If you were in church yesterday, then you got to hear the Word of God preached by your pastor or another minister. In my opinion, there is nothing more important in our lives than listening and receiving His Word. I love the music, the worship, and the singing, but nothing builds our faith like hearing an anointed sermon. It not only strengthens us but when we act on what it says, it is the most significant threat to the enemy. If you think about it, there isn’t anything the devil targets more than the Word of God. That was the first thing he ever attacked, way back in the Garden of Eden, and it’s still his strategy today. He’s afraid of what will happen if people move from being hearers of the Word to doers of it.
Jesus explained in Mark chapter four, how the enemy works to try and keep God’s Word from operating in our lives.
Mark 4:14-15 (ESV)
14 The sower sows the word.
15 And these are the ones along the path, where the word is sown: when they hear, Satan immediately comes and takes away the word that is sown in them.
Whatever you heard yesterday, the enemy wants to take it away so nothing will be produced in your life. You have to be determined to LET THE WORD WORK!!! Fight for the seed that was planted in your heart so it can cause things to grow in your life. The enemy can’t stop the seed (Word) from going forth, but he will try and keep it from taking root. You’re going to need everything you heard in God’s Word for today, and the rest of this week, so rebuke the devourer, let your faith increase, and LET THE WORD WORK!!!
