But Jesus told him, “No! For the Scriptures tell us that bread won’t feed men’s souls: obedience to every word of God is what we need.” (Matthew 4:4 TLB)
The key to all Scriptures is: God’s Holy Spirit, feeds us through His Word, He feeds our hearts, minds, body’s, spirit’s and soul’s with His Word. He tells us that we cannot live on bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. By reading God’s Word, Jesus, also used the Word of God when He was in the wilderness to combat the devil and all of His works. He used it like a sword in spiritual combat. We must do the same. Knowing the Bible verses is an important step in helping us to resist the devil’s attacks, but we must also obey the Bible. Note that Satan had memorised Scripture, but failed to obey it. Knowing and obeying the Bible helps us to follow God’s teachings, remembering God is the only One who can satisfy the desires we have in the right way and at the right time.
Holy Spirit, we thank and praise You for all the help You give to us when we face the tactics and strategies of the enemy, we can use God’s Word to combat the battle’s we are faced with. Through the precious name and Blood of Jesus Christ, You sanctify us with Your truth. Your Word equips and empowers us and gives us the confidences needed to fight the good fight in faith. We praise and bless You, for all the help You give to us daily; in the precious name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
