By the Word of God

In Matt 4:4, when Jesus was in the wilderness being tempted by the devil He used one method to defeat him,  Jesus used the Word of God.  When Jesus defeated the devil in the wilderness He gave us a pattern to follow.  We are to use the Word of God to overcome and defeat the devil.  Jesus said in this verse that man does not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.  Jesus associated the Word of God as spiritual food.  When we read, study and meditate on the Bible we are spiritually being fed.  Your inner man is being fed and you are growing stronger in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Jesus also associated the Word of God as directly from the mouth of God.  Peter puts it this way. "Holy men of God were carried along by the Spirit as they wrote the Word of God.  The Bible are words directly from the mouth of God.  They are spirit and life.  You cannot go through spiritual life without the Word of God.  The Word of God is our offensive and defensive weapon in our war against evil, wicked and dark forces that would destroy us if given the opportunity.  The beautiful thing is that through the Word of God you defeat them every time.  The blood, the word and the name of Jesus Christ will defeat the devil every time so today apply the Word of God into your situation and walk in victory.  Your promises today are:  Psalm 17:4, 107:20, 199:20, 89, 105, 107, 130 and 133.
