DIG for Tuesday the 15th of September…..counter doubt with His Word…..Matthew 4 v 3 and 4

Many of us have doubts and fears (or temptations) coming at us and against us, much like the way Jesus did when He has in the wilderness (Matthew 4).

The enemy can come at us and try to bring doubts into our minds.

The enemy cannot make us do anything but he can use his lies to cause us to doubt the truth of what God has done for us through Jesus.

He can tell us that healing and prosperity are not for us, not for today, he can even get us to doubt our salvation sometimes.

At times like these we need to use the same model that Jesus used.

We need to say, “It is written” and then quote God’s Word on the subject.

We counter doubt and fear with truth from God’s Word, with what is written in the Bible.

Doubt and fear is like darkness from the enemy, we counter darkness and make it flee by bringing forth light from His Word.

Using this “model” we resist the devil and submit to God (James 4 v 7).

The devil does not have an answer for the Word of God, other than more lies and doubts.

If we are assured of what the Word says then the enemy cannot trick us into a different way of thinking.

If we know we have been healed through Jesus’ finished work on the cross we can counter his nonsense about illness and disease (1 Peter 2 v 24).

If we know Jesus became poor so that we might be rich we can counter his nonsense about being poor to be humble (2 Corinthians 8 v 9).

Truth will make doubt free; knowing the truth will set us free (John 8 v 32).

Speak this out today…..”Thank you for the truths within your Word and thank you that knowing the truth has set me free”.

Matthew 4 v 3 and 4…..And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. 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
