Cup of Morning Love
Fellow Christians, is the Bible Your Friend? Do You Read It?
As a believer, is Satan, (named by God to be “Adversary”) attacking you? misleading you? tempting you?
Is it important you read the Bible every chance you get?
Jesus thought so, and gave us the perfect example as to why when he faced our Adversary, Satan.
Listen…or read it yourself… Matthew 4:1-11. When he was in the wilderness praying, fasting, and after 40 days Satan came to him to tempt him. Now, don’t think Jesus didn’t already have power over Satan, because he did.
Read Matthew 28:18 KJV, And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.”
Jesus allowed this temptation for our sake, for a witness unto us to show what we can do through him and the written word. During each test, temptation, Jesus said to Satan, “It is written…”
It is written: wrote down to read. Jesus used the “written” word to win each temptation, and commanded Satan to leave him with it.
GOOD NEWS! We can use the written word to do the same. It is our weapon, as we, the church. We need to pick the Bible up, read it, and learn how to use what is written in it too. Just as you would learn how to use a sword to defend yourself from an enemy attacking your physical life in the natural. But this sword is SUPERNATURAL and used from the spirit via our tongues.
James 4:7 KJV: Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he shall flee.
Submit ourselves to reading the Bible. Resist the devil, just as Jesus did. Refute the devils’s lies about you, and other people, with what God’s written word says. Satan will flee, just as he did Jesus in the wilderness. God’s word is light. Satan can’t stand in the light, he will flee back to the darkness.
Empower yourself with the written word today, and every day you possibly can. Read your Bible, whether you understand it at first or not. Show God your dedicated heart, and he will begin to unlock the mysteries and power of his written word.
Here’s a clue and a key. The written word will always testify of the Living Word, The Bread of Life, The Way…The Truth…The Life, Jesus, son of the living God.
I pray this helps you in your walk with Christ.
Thanks for reading,
