Thessalonians3:1 Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you: 2 And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith. 3 But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil. 4 And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do and will do the things which we command you.
Saint Paul wrote to the Thessalonians and us to pray that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you: for this has been one of the battled the devil has drawn to fight to deflect the value of God word, for people to lost interest in studying and meditating on the word of God, to be so difficult to take it and study, today until one take extra steps of self discipline committing time and strength to it study one can just be carry away callously
The enemy’s primary target in your life is not your money, car, houses or other material things but his real target is the word of God in your soul. If you preserve the word, it will preserve you.
The devil does this so that you will not believe in the glorious gospel that he can replace it with other thing to keep from it even studying it . That is, all the wonderful provisions God has prepared for you. Also, he never wants you to know or be conscious of your real status in Christ written in the word about you that you can not obtain them .
john 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
please be inform the word of God is your number one inheritance this is why is the fist thing the devil is out for to take from you so be careful in protecting it by studying and meditating on it always and upholding it.
Hence apostle Paul demand us to pray for the word hearer and its ministers for the devil wish to stop the ministers from being able to minister
1Co 16:9 For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries. Also to hinder the hearers
2 Corinthians 4:4In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
The devil is fully aware that it is only faith that can please the Lord and the word of God is the foundation of real scriptural faith. He therefore, targets the word so that you can continue in unbelief.
This is a fight that every believer must fight to win. And one of the sure ways of victory or preserving the word in your heart is continuous meditation on the Word received.
“Think of the Word, sleep on the Word, occupy your heart with the Word.” Stop feeding your heart with junk materials, movies or other things that do not edify. As the only way of killing negative imaginations and be sanctified in heart
- Matthew13:18When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart.

Holy spirit our helper, destroy from our life every form of rootless and fruitless nature in thy name of Jesus
- Mat 13:22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. Holy Spirit take from me the bounding that is derailing me of purpose in thy name of Jesus
- Mat 13:23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
