Do you struggle with doubt and defeat or endure in the supernatural strength of God?
And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread. And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God. (Luke 4:3-4 KJV)
The devil was poking and prodding around at Jesus provoking Him into doubting what God said, just as he fooled Eve into questioning God’s Word. Jesus did not doubt God, in fact He quoted scripture right back at him, answering with exactly what God said in Deuteronomy 8:3, that man does not live by bread alone but by God’s Word.
Jesus refused to doubt what God said, choosing to successfully quote scripture right in the devil’s face thwarting any attempt to beguile him into sin. Jesus repelled the devil’s spiritual attack swiftly knocking down his attempt at bamboozling Jesus into his clever spiritual fraud and deception. God gives man everything needed to successfully combat the devil’s attempts at reigning us in on his spiritual shams.
Follow the pattern that Jesus set forth in spiritual battles with the devil living victorious in the supernatural strength and power of the Word of God.
