In HIS Presence


Psalm 149:1-9Meditation verse:

“Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand” (Psalm 149:6).

The second weapon of our warfare our reading mentions is “a two-edged sword in your hand”. This is the word of God. Hebrews 4:12 says “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”.When Satan tempted Jesus Christ as He came out from forty days of fasting in the wilderness, He defeated Satan by stating the word of God. Jesus could have said, ‘Satan, I rebuke you’, instead He said, “It is written…”. There is no difficulty that can withstand the word of God and for every situation you are currently going through, there is a specific word; there is an “it is written” that you can deploy as your weapon. “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).So, let the high praises of God be in your mouth, and a two-edged sword in your hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind the kings with chains, and the nobles with fetters of iron; to execute on them the written judgment. This is the honor and privilege you have as a child of God. Praise the Lord (Psalm 149:6-9).

IN HIS PRESENCE is written by Oke Chinye.
Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest."

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:
Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.
