If we don’t have truth written on our heart, we cannot recognize a lie. The enemy is crafty. Ephesians chapter 6 is clear that the only defense we have is our sword…the word…the truth.
In school I found the best way for me to study was to re-write my notes. It seemed to give me a “visual” of the information as I wrote, having to think about each word. I find the same is true with scripture…another reason I enjoy journaling in my Bible. I recently purchased my first Journible to practice this process by re-writing each line of God’s word. Below is a link if you’d like to check them out for yourself!
Not only is the truth our defense, but it is the bread of life. I pray that God would write His word on our hearts so that it would pour out of each of us breathing life on others.
