When my husband and I first got married I rode in a semi truck with him while he drove his truck for a living. We lived, and slept in that cab traveling the countryside. During that time I really got to see, up close and personal, what my inner struggles were. These issues I had dealt with my entire life but in my stubbornness I chose not to accept them as truly things that I needed to change or allow God to.
We lived in a semi with a cab measuring approximately 61 inches high by 42 inches deep by 75 inches wide. We traveled the country for anywhere from 2-3 weeks at a time. When I began to really hear how I spoke to my new husband, how it broke his heart it was then that it broke my heart as well. That’s when the Lord spoke to me about getting serious in fighting the battle with my mouth. This really challenged my faith in the Bible and showed me that it truly was my sword I needed to use to cut out of me those unruly thought patterns that led me speak out those nasty words.
God led me to search His Word to find Scriptures that could change my attitudes, words and behaviors. I found verses that literally changed the words coming out of my mouth. It was then God made Himself very real to me and I saw the way to fight any battle in my life and be successful at it was to throw God’s Word at it. It was truly taking God at His Word and applying it like medicine in order to experience healing.
Since then there have been so many opportunities in my life, as well as in my marriage, to apply the Word in medicinal ways and I have been more than a conqueror, not through myself and my strength, but through Christ’s strength.
Take your time today to apply God’s Word to whatever struggles you have and see how He makes a way where there is no way. God is our ever present help in times of trouble (Ps 46:1) “My strength is sufficient for my power is made perfect in your weakness.” (2 Cor 12:9) Experience that in your life so that you can genuinely teach that to someone else.
Today be strong in the Lord and the power of His might. Blessings to you this day in the mighty name of Yeshua My Savior and Lord.
