Tell him it is written.

May 26, 2024

“Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, ‘If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.’ But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God’” Matthew 4:3-4, NKJV.

Jesus didn’t debate. He didn’t argue about the issue. He didn’t allow the devil to lead him into despair. In response to the devil’s temptations and schemes, in response to what the devil said about who He was and what God can do, He said, “It is written.”

When it comes to everything in your life, don’t fight with your own words. Fight with God’s. Let God’s Word stand alone and win for you. Let it stand alone and show you how powerful it is. It is sharper than any two-edged sword. It drives away your enemies. It can shut the mouth of condemnation when it speaks. It doesn’t buckle in the storm. It doesn’t waver and always comes through to bless you. It will tell you to hold on. It is able to establish peace in your heart and mind. God’s word still has the same power as when He spoke it. God doesn’t change, and His word doesn’t either. It is written.

One of the greatest commitments you can make is to put the word of God in your heart and declare it over your life each day. Jesus couldn’t win without knowing what was written–nor can you.

Prayer: Father, I truly thank you for your word that never fails. You left us what is written so I can know you and build my faith. You left it so that I can use it to win every fight against the enemy. Develop in me the habit, like Jesus, of declaring your word. Make it like a reflex in me! I commit to starting somewhere and putting your word daily in my heart. Thank You, Lord! I am victorious with your word. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Study: Matthew 4:5-11, Romans 10:17, Hebrews 4:12
