Arsenal of Arrows: Fighting the World with Weapons of Sharp Biblical Truth by Winslow Dixon is a 30-day devotional designed to build one's relationship with God and to equip the believer with the necessary tools to defeat the wiles of the enemy.
What I loved most about this devotional is that each day is highlighted with a passage reading, personal reflection, daily challenge, today's prayer focus, and journal notes. This is a devotional designed to take people to a new spiritual place. The author takes the time to showcase the battle plan and strategies to overcome. In a part of the book, the author says, "No one is exempt from becoming Satan’s target. During His forty day fast in the desert, Satan even tempted Jesus Christ." As believers we shall be tempted. If Jesus was tempted, no one who calls upon His name will be exempt from temptation. The Bible declares that God will not put more on us than what we can bear. In the midst of the temptation, He will make a way of escape that we may be able to endure. Christians will understand that Jesus suffered temptations, but didn't yield to the advances of Satan. This book points out the things we must do to muster courage through the word of God and stand. A lot of times we are walking around in a state of remorse because we have failed to acknowledge the King.
Another passage that spoke to me personally is when the author said, "You cannot get blood out of a turnip. No matter how much you poke it, that vegetable will never bleed." This is a southern cliche the author points out in reference to people. I've been around people and I've learned that no matter how much we try, we cannot change a person into who we desire. This goes for unbelievers and believers. As the author stated, our job is to show compassion and allow God to do the work. We can't point the finger because everyone has imperfections. Great point! I recommend this book to those looking to move forward spiritually, mentally, and physically.
