The life of faith is a fight of faith, and believers must be armed for it. Because this fight is not against flesh and blood, but against spiritual principles, the Word of God is our indispensable sword. Through memorizing and meditating on the Word, you can have this powerful sword readily available to use at any time, providing you with ever-present counsel, encouragement and protection from the enemy of our souls.
The five-year Fighter Verses Bible memory program features 260 essential verses to arm believers to faith for faith and love, and against unbelief and sin. You are encouraged to memorize one verse or short passage a week on your own, with your family or together as an entire church body.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you might be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.—Ephesians 6:10-12
