But He answered, “It is written, “'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of GOD.'”
Because the Word of GOD mattered to JESUS, it should also matter to us and we should do everything we can to live according to the principles we find in GOD’s Word. One of the issues that JESUS’ followers struggle with the most is how we are to apply the Word of GOD in our lives. The Word of GOD is as real as GOD Himself.
He spoke creation into being and He sustains all of creation by His own Words and power!! In our verse for today, JESUS gives us a major key that will enable us to enjoy life and live victoriously by our simple obedience to His Word. JESUS is the Bread of life. His words are spirit and they are life!
Have you ever had a real life encounter with GOD and His Word? Everyday we’re given opportunities to experience the reality of GOD. Are we open to His Word? Do we even care to know Him through His Word?
Whatever we’re going through in life and no matter what challenges and temptations confront us, GOD has given us His Word that contains His very great and precious promises.
We are more than conquerors in CHRIST JESUS, and with the help of the HOLY SPIRIT, no weapon formed against us shall prosper! GOD’S Word matters!!
FATHER GOD, thank You for JESUS’ victory over Satan on my behalf. Help me to walk in newness of life in the power of the SPIRIT. I know that without You, I can do nothing, but in CHRIST JESUS, I have the victory over Satan, sin, the world, and the flesh. Thank You, in JESUS Mighty Name, AMEN.
Standing On His Promises,
Pastor Wally & Sister Mattie
