Don’t Let The Enemy Steal The Word
By Rusty Wilson
And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.
- Mark 4:15
It’s vitally important when we receive a Word from God whether by a word spoken or by receiving from the Word of God that we hold onto the Word given to us and not allow the enemy (Satan) to come and steal it from us.
We need to make sure that we have a solid foundation that we are standing on and that foundation is built on the Word of God. When we read the Word and speak it, we increase our faith (Romans 10:17), which strengthens our foundation.
When we hear the Word, our faith increases and the enemy wants to keep us from increasing our faith and standing on God’s Word by trying to steal the Word from us. John 10:10 says, The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. The thief (the enemy) comes to steal the Word that is sown and if he steals the Word, it will cause our faith to weaken and he will continue with his purpose to kill and destroy.
The enemy targets our faith, trying to cause our shield to be lowered so he can have an open door to attack health, finances, family relationship and anything else he finds an open door to get in and attack.
It’s vitally important to continue to keep the Word that is sown into our life protected by keeping the door closed to the devil by keeping strife, unforgiveness, bitterness and anything else that leaves a door open to the enemy. We need to make sure we submit and keep our submission to God, resist the devil and he will flee from us (James 4:7).
