When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.”
Matthew 13:19 KJV
There’s this saying that the lion goes after the weaker animal in a group of other animals. He does this by observing all the animals and then when he spots the weaker one, and goes for the kill.
A weak christian is one who is ignorant of the word of God. Being ignorant of the word of God, makes the christian a pray, because the necessary tool to fight is missing.
The enemy can attempt to attack anyone but like the lion, he looks out for it’s prey. The one who is weak, the one who has not understood what is written in the scripture concerning him.
How well do you know the scripture?
How well do you understand it?
Understanding the scripture is put to test when you are confronted by situations and circumstances. It is the depth of your root in the knowledge of the word of God that will determine if you’d be victorious in this life or not.
Don’t be the enemies prey. Increase your understanding, go for the knowledge of the word of God. The word is your sword with which you fight the enemy. Create time to study and meditate on the word of God that way, you will not be weak but will be strong and well equipped to stand against the enemy. Praise God!
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you because the eyes of my understanding are enlightened in order that I may know the hope to which I was called, the riches of Your glorious inheritance made available to me. I declare that I am strong and ever victorious as I study and meditate on your word in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen!
