KEY SCRIPTURE:Matthew 4:4 ” 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”.
Our Lord Jesus said that man can and must live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. This is perfect truth and very refreshing.
2nd Timothy 3:16,17 reads “All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto every good work”. God’s word is our standard for living. God’s word have creative power and can cause to manifest that which is not there (Romans 4:17). God’s word is a lamb unto our feet and light for or path (Psalm 119:105). God’s word is medicine for our bodies (Proverbs 4:22). God’s word is alive and powerful, it is also sharper than any two edged sword. (Hebrews 4:12). God’s word is God Himself In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God. All things were made by Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made.(John 1 ;1-2
God’s word is the best choice to rule your life. Indeed man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the word of God. We have to live by it. This vast and unreachable universe made up of billions of galaxies are held in place by the word of His power (Hebrews 1:3). It is sheer stupidity for a man to ignore God’s word and try to make any headway in life. Some may seem to be making something with their lives without God, yet their loss is too vast. Submission to the word brings peace (Phil.4:6) There is no man * without Christ who has true peace. Some may try to create some mechanical peace, yet they know very well that, they don’t have real peace.
Submission to God’s word gives God access to dominate your life and act through you. The Christian is God living in a man acting through Him. What on earth can overcome such a man?
God’s word is my delight. It is my life and breath. By His word I am more than a conqueror and life is really worth living because of the word the dictates whatever I do.
Psalms 112:1-8 ” Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD that delighteth greatly in his commandments. His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth forever. Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous. A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion. Surely he shall not be moved forever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance. He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD. His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies”.
