Good morning people who live by the Word
Many times our challenge is not ignorance to God’s Word but double-mindedness.
Did you know Jesus was tempted to do the wrong thing?
Matthew 4:3-4 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.”
Jesus’ immediate response to temptation was to quote what God’s Word said (Jesus was quoting Deuteronomy 8:3).
The enemy comes and tries to undermine what God has said; he comes and tries to put doubt in Believers’ minds. This is why Jesus said we need to know what His Word says.
God’s Word must become the highest authority in our lives because….
…the power is in the Word. More accurately, the power is in a life submitted to the Word.
Our problem is when we fluctuate between what the Word says and what logic says. This is called being double-minded and James tells us that double-minded people are unstable in all their ways.
Double-mindedness does not remain compartmentalized; it will end up affecting all of our ways.
I believe we live in a time when we must ruthlessly live by what God says in His Word
