Word for Today
The Word (55)-IT IS WRITTEN!
“But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” ( Matthew 4:4)
When Jesus was was tempted by the devil, the weapon He used to defeat him was : it is written (Matthew 4:4-11).
If you sufficiently meditate on the word of God, you will always know the right word of God to use whenever you are challenged by the devil or circumstances beyond your control. Remember that Jesus did not have to open a bible to read out the written word of God when he was tempted. The word of God in Christ, hidden in your heart, generates power.
The truth is that God is keen to make you a living word of God. It is the word of God in your heart that you can make use of when challenged. It is out of the abundance of the heart that the mouth speaks ( Matthew 12:34).
How often do you say: It is written? The word of God is your greatest weapon against everything contrary to the nature of God. We encourage you to store the word of God in your heart.
Yes, you are to become a living word of God:
“Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men…” (2Cor 3:2-3).
Father, please, give me the grace to always learn to say IT IS WRITTEN, when ever I am challenged in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.
