If you read my DIGs on a regular basis you will know I ‘bang on’ about the importance of the Word; I have been ‘accused’ of being a one-message preacher!
But I do this because of the importance of the Word of because it is so powerful.
When Jesus was being tempted by the enemy He could have called down an army of angels, fought and won a battle; He could have scattered the enemy and his demons.
Instead He used something far more powerful, He used the Word of God.
Three times Jesus refuted what the enemy said by saying, “It is written”.
Jesus used the Word of God against the enemy and He won.
We can do the same thing!
When the enemy tells you about your poverty you can reply, “It is written that Jesus came to bring me life in abundance and that Jesus was made poor so that I could be made rich” (John 10 v 10 and 2 Corinthians 8 v 9).
When the enemy tries to force his sickness upon you, you can say, “It is written that by the stripes of Jesus I have been healed” (1 Peter 2 v 24).
When the enemy suggests that no-one cares for you or are interested in you the reply should be, “It is written that Father God has accepted me in the beloved and adopted my into His family” (Ephesians 1 v 5 and 6).
It is written, followed by a truth from Scripture is one of the most devastating weapons that you can ever yield.
The Word is so powerful that the enemy is petrified of it; he does not want you reading and understanding Scripture.
Have you ever wondered why there are so many distractions and disturbances when you get down to reading the Word?
Be like Jesus and get the weapon of the Word into your heart so that you can speak it out the next time the enemy comes knocking!
Speak this out today…..”Thank you for your Word and thank you that it is a weapon I can use again and again”.
Matthew 4 v 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
