Our Only Defense

While studying Proverbs one morning, one verse really stuck out to me.

“Like a city whose walls are broken down is a man who lacks self-control.” -Proverbs 25:28

As Christians, our heart is protected with a wall of God’s Word. The more scripture and truths we know, the higher and stronger the wall. As we meditate on the Word of God, our wall becomes more fortified. That is why daily Bible study is so important. It helps us exercise self-control and protect us from the enemy’s lies. But when we lose self-control and give in to sin, we give ground to Satan. He gains more and more ground until our walls come crumbling down. It lays in ruins until we go back to the Lord and seek out His word to rebuild our defenses. It is a long and hard process, but that’s to be expected when you have to clear up all the debris and then rebuild the walls from what’s left.

Part of Revine‘s mission is to equip you with God’s Word and truth so that you may keep the devil at bay by setting of the Truth against his lies. If you haven’t already done so, establish a daily Bible reading plan, memorize verses, and meditate on them throughout the day, Don’rt wait until your walls come down and leave your heart exposed; fortify them daily to hold strong against the enemy’s attacks. If you need help finding a daily reading plan, check out BiblePlan. For a new verse to memorize every day, check out Verse of the Day. Stay strong in the Word, rely on God’s grace, and live each day for the glory of the King!
