YOUR VICTORY IS IN THE WORD!
And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry. 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 4:2-4).
Jesus Christ was led by the Holy Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. There, He fasted for forty days and forty nights, and He became very hungry. Then, the tempter came and ordered Jesus Christ to turn stones into bread. But Jesus Christ quoted the Word of God and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4). The Word of God in the Bible is the weapon for your victorious Christian living in Christ Jesus.
As a Christian, it is great to live your life by the Word of God. You should never live your life by the wisdom of man or by the philosophy of life but by the Word of God. The Word of God is eternal and forever dependable. It does not fail and will never disappoint. No wonder the Bible says in Hebrews 4:12, “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword…” God’s Word is the power to liberate man from captivity and bondage forever.
Whenever you are confronted with life challenges, oppositions and obstacles; use the Word of God as your weapon. You should never depend on man and talisman because they are unreliable and impotent (Psalm 20:7-8). But rather, learn to depend on the Word of God because in it your victory lies. In the three solid temptations of Jesus Christ, He answered, “It is written!” He therefore depended on the Word of God. The devil does not and will never understand the secret and the power of God’s Word.
