HEARING AND OBEYING GOD’S WORD

January 4

Satan attacked Jesus at His most vulnerable time.  The way it is written assumes that the devil knew that Jesus was the Son of God, it could have been written since you are the Son of God. The devil wanted Jesus to do something that would be sin and cause Him to not be able to die for our sins since He would not then be a perfect Savior. God wanted Israel to learn in Deuteronomy 8:2-3 the lesson that their hunger in the wilderness was meant to show them that hearing and obeying God’s Word is the most important thing in life. Israel instead demanded bread and died.  Jesus submitted to the Father’s will and left the bread alone so that He could live to pay for our sins.  Remember the devil will use any means to tempt you and Jesus gave us the perfect lesson here on how to fight temptation.  He used the word of God to prove false what the devil told Him to do and this is what we need to do too. We need to be like David who said he hid the word of God in his heart that He might not sin against God (Psalm 119:11).  Do you have the word memorized so that you can defeat the devil and temptation when it comes? Let’s commit to do this today.  Amen!

                Matthew 4:3-4 Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” 4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.'”.+
