Spiritual Warfare and the Scriptures


“Reading scripture is a fortification of the spirit… We have a continuous need for the full armor of the Scriptures…Grounding in Scripture will always draw God’s servant closer to Him.” (St. Isaac the Syrian, St. John Chrysostom, Dynamis 5/27/2015)

“And when we are under attack—tempted to sin, or to be discouraged, or to just give up altogether—it is then that we must wrestle the words and promises of the Bible into the center of our being; to “let the message of Christ dwell among you richly” (Colossians 3:16)...when you know Scripture that well, you process all thoughts and feelings through a grid of biblical revelation." (Pastor Timothy Keller)

“By reading [and knowing] the scriptures I am so renewed that all nature seems renewed around me and with me. The sky seems to be a pure, a cooler blue, the trees a deeper green. The whole world is charged with the glory of God and I feel fire and music under my feet.” (Thomas Merton)

“The holy Bible is the most necessary means of spiritual warfare against the devil; it is also the chief means of acquiring knowledge of the divine will.” (George C. Papademetriou)

“Nourishing ourselves with the scriptures daily and allowing the words and meaning of the Bible to sink into our hearts is important to our daily spiritual struggles. During times of spiritual warfare, often the right scripture will come to our mind from our heart, the result of the Holy Spirit within us, to battle whatever temptation or trouble we are facing. But this will only happen if we are committed daily (give us this day our daily bread) and living prayerfully.” (Sacramental Living Blog)
