Psalm 37:31 - How to Win Spiritual Battles.

Psalm 37:31 (NLT) They have made Gods law 
their own, so they will never slip from his path. 


God's plan for godly living is the only 
means to a healthy life.  If we really desire to 
follow God and live a good life, we must saturate 
our mind with the truth of His Word.  God's 
truth is designed to be the foundation for our 
life.  It will help us to walk securely and make 
wise and effective decisions.  A life lived 
according to God's program will lead to healthy 
relationships and freedom from the dependencies that bind 
us.  [Life Recovery SB] 


   Have you ever noticed that when the Bible 
talks about spiritual armor, only one piece is an 
offensive weapon? This armor includes the belt of 
truth, the breastplate of righteous, the shoes of 
the gospel of peace, and the helmet of 
   Then we have the sword of the Spirit, 
which is the Word of God. 
   Now, a soldier in the first century 
wouldnt fight his opponent with a helmet or his 
sandal, would he? No, hed deflect blows with his 
shield, hed take a hit with his breastplate, and 
hed fight back with his sword. 
   In the spiritual battle, we fight back 
with an offensive weapon: the sword of the 
Spirit, which is the Word of God. It means that we 
remind ourselves of the truth of what God has 
   Isnt it amazing how an entire 
situation can be transformed by putting things into 
perspective? The Bible says, How can a young man 
cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your 
word (Psalm 119:9 NKJV). 
   For instance, the devil might whisper in 
your ear, Youre worthless. God doesnt 
love you. He wants to ruin your life. 
   But you can reply, You know what? 
Thats a lie, because it is written, For I know 
the thoughts that I think toward you, says the 
Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give 
you a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11 
   We respond with the Word of God. Jesus 
knew the Scriptures, and we need to know them as 
well. Are you memorizing Gods Word? Psalm 119 
says, Your word I have hidden in my heart, that 
I might not sin against You (verse 11 
   And Psalm 37:31 tells us, They have 
made Gods law their own, so they will never 
slip from his path (NLT). 
   Fill your mind with Gods Word. And be 
ready to use it because it will give you the 
defense you will need in the hour of spiritual 
attack. [Greg Laurie from Harvest Ministries; 


   Many are surprised into the commission of 
sin because of a failure to study the 
Scriptures. They were off their guard, and Satan found 
them an easy prey. 
   Wonderful possibilities are open to those 
who lay hold of the divine assurances of Gods 
word. There are glorious truths to come before the 
people of God. Privileges and duties which they do 
not even suspect to be in the Bible will be laid 
open before them. As they follow on in the path 
of humble obedience, doing His will, they will 
know more and more of the oracles of God. 
   The precious faith inspired of God 
imparts strength and nobility of character. As His 
goodness, His mercy, and His love are dwelt upon, 
clearer and still clearer will be the perception of 
truth; higher, holier, the desire for purity of 
heart and clearness of thought. The soul dwelling 
in the pure atmosphere of holy thought is 
transformed by intercourse with God through the study of 
His Word. Truth is so large, so far reaching, so 
deep, so broad, that self is lost sight of. The 
heart is softened and subdued into humility, 
kindness, and love. And the natural powers are 
enlarged because of holy obedience. From the study of 
the words of life students may come forth with 
minds expanded, elevated, ennobled. 
   Youthful minds fail to reach their 
noblest development when they neglect the highest 
source of wisdom"the Word of God. That we are in 
Gods world, in the presence of the Creator, that 
we are made in His likeness; that He watches 
over us and loves us and cares for us"these are 
wonderful themes for thought and lead the mind into 
broad, exalted fields of meditation. He who opens 
mind and heart to the contemplation of such 
themes as these will never be satisfied with 
trivial, sensational subjects. 
   The Bible has the highest claim to our 
reverent attention. We should not be satisfied with a 
superficial knowledge, but should seek to learn the full 
meaning of the words of truth, to drink deep of the 
spirit of the Holy Oracles. HP136 


Blessed are those whose way is blameless, 
who walk in the law of the LORD! Blessed are 
those who keep his testimonies, who seek him with 
their whole heart, who also do no wrong, but walk 
in his ways! You have commanded your precepts 
to be kept diligently. Oh that my ways may be 
steadfast in keeping your statutes! Then I shall not 
be put to shame, having my eyes fixed on all 
your commandments. I will praise you with an 
upright heart, when I learn your righteous rules.
