This passage of scripture was speaking towards adultery and was a warning and given wisdom of how to not be seduced by the sexual and immoral sins. But as I looked at the words of God I saw more than just that. His word leaps from the pages and shows me how to keep God’s word as close to me as it can get. Bind means to tie or fasten tightly together. This means I can tightly hold on to God’s unchanging word that provides security for my life. This is the only attachment to something that I want to have.
So many things in this world want to attach themselves to us. Fear, rejection, doubt, poverty, sickness. But t I attache myself to the word of God all of those blood and life sucking leeches have no other option that to detach themselves. Why? Because James 2:19 says, “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.”
In Luke Jesus appointed seventy disciples and sent them out before Him into every city and place to spread the gospel. He told them to carry nothing with them. They were to grant peace in every home they entered and fellowship in the same homes and heal the sick. Who ever received them, received Jesus and whoever did not received them, did not receive Jesus. That same seventy returned to Jesus with joy saying to Jesus, “Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.”
This is because Jesus had given them all power over their enemy and he could not hurt them. God has done the same for us. He has given us power and that power can only be discovered in His word. When we discover that power, hold tight to it! A thought came to mind as I am writing this. Witches and warlocks wear magical amulets around their necks that they say posses power. But what more for us in Christ Jesus that tie His word around our necks and carry it with us!
But remember to not get overly excited about those spirits being subject to us. But rejoice more because your name is written in heaven.
