Sword of the Spirit

Hastening into the square room
Hopeless
Seeking in desperation for a line of defence
Panting frantically
Enemies howling at the door

In the centre, the perfect suit of Armour
Glimmering with hope
Shining with glory
A symbol of salvation against the wicked

On the left, a sword
Glowing as if a shining lamp
Direction
Guidance
A Weapon
Sharp and double edged
Ablaze with flame

Stepping in the Armour provides confidence and comfort
A Calm against the wake of evil

Grasping, clutching, wielding
Empowered,
Enlightened,
Equipped.

With God as my sword
To cut away the Darkness
A bright against the night
A star against the sky
A hope.

By the grace of God,
I am ready

Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. (Eph 6:13)

Shalom

One thought on “Sword of the Spirit

  1. Maria

    We have to depend on God to help us fight back the evil. The Sword of the Spirit is a good weapon. Sword of the Spirit is like a sharpened sword against the wicked doer. Thank God that every day reading the Bible and praying is just like the Sword of the Spirit fighting back the enemy. The Holy Spirit is with us and like a Sword of the Spirit. Keep fighting back the wicked, against all evil doers. God is powerful and great. God is love.
