MT 4:4 Jesus answered: “It is written: ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God’.”
A new morning of a new month, in a still new year. So why is a huge part of life the same as it ever was? Because the one thing that hasn’t changed is that the “tempter” still exists in our life. It’s possible that no matter what you try to do you feel opposed and unsure of how to break through. Am I right?
But our Savior, Jesus, faced similar issues. He once was tormented and is now victorious. In Matthew 4, Jesus was led into the desert to be tempted by the devil. My conclusion on hearing this was that “I’m not alone.” Thank God!
But Jesus was able to resist temptation by telling our enemy that there is more to life than food. And the food we’re usually hungry for isn’t the secret to life anyway.
When you feel you’re being tempted and feel tormented, the solution lies in getting some ‘bread’ into your system. A small, steady diet of the Word of God will help you dispatch the devil every time he pays you a visit, to live to fight another day and to rise victorious! Praise God!
