It is Written!

Matthew 4:1-11 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil. After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written: “‘He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'” Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'” Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.” Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.'” Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him. 

In this reading the words that stuck out most were “It is written.” Jesus was using the Word of God on the devil himself. If the very Son of God used the Holy Word rather than just zapping Satan off the face of the earth, then what example is that for us? “For it is written”, was the devil’s way of trying to screw around with the Word of God for his own purposes! He took some words from Psalm 91 and bent them to fit his need, however you see that Jesus knew the Word and answered accordingly saying, “It is ALSO written“. In your everyday life you are faced with trials, temptations, people messing with the meaning of the Word and YOU HAVE to know the difference for yourself so that no one can make you believe a lie. The most powerful help you can have is the Holy Spirit!

Mark 13:11 “don’t worry about what you’ll say. When the time comes, say what’s on your heart-the Holy Spirit will make his witness in and through you. If you haven’t studied, you won’t pass the test, if you haven’t invited the Holy Spirit to live in you, then He won’t be there to help you.

Start in Matthew, read all the words of Jesus and when you have learned His words and read His parables you will get knowledge that no one can take away. Then when the devil comes at you, or sends his little demons, whatever form they take whether it is your boss, your friends, the driver behind you who is blowing his horn, the slow cashier, you can fill in the blanks, you know exactly what I mean. You may be having a wonderful day and suddenly the devil has presented something that absolutely blocks out the sunshine of your day. We don’t have a weapon except the Word, follow the example of Jesus and use it! 2 Corinthians 10:4 We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. And that mighty weapon is the Word.

Learn what the Word really says so that you are better able to fight and win in this battle called life by simply saying, “IT IS WRITTEN

About harolene

Thank you for stopping by for a visit! If you read my thoughts you will see that I am sometimes serious, at other times sappy or funny, occasionally I am sad and sentimental, but I am always sincere! I am a single mother who raised two children, born ten years apart and different sexes so first it was bows and dolls, pretty dresses and boys! When my son was born it was rough and tumble games, baseball, soccer, wrestling and girls! I am known for my "smile" and for my default answer to any situation, "no problem", which was something I didn't realize I did until it was pointed out to me! I am a moon watcher and a star gazer. I am astounded and feel so small knowing that every creature that has ever walked the face of this earth has gazed upon that same beautiful orb that my eyes can behold on any night when the earth is not wearing her cloak of clouds. My parents have made me the person that I am. Their love, veracity in all areas of life, humor and passion for their work and each other have given me hope that my life can actually be a happy one! Chances are if you are reading this you already know all this but again, I appreciate your stopping by! While you're here hit the "Like" button for me and thanks for checking in!
