Transformation Today A Daily Devotional With Victor Adeyemi
Topic: It is Written!
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.” -Matthew 4:4
Jesus overcame temptation by the Word. He put the written Word of God in His mouth against the tempter when He was tempted. The Word of God is the sword of the recreated human spirit, it is the weapon the spirit of the believer uses to fight.
With the Word of God, the recreated human spirit is able to conquer the flesh and the enemy. The inward victory over the flesh decides victory over external forces.
Though Jesus got the victory for you on the cross of Calvary, you have to enforce your victory and bring it to manifestation in every area of your life by administering the Word of God in the face of whatever undermines your victory- including temptation.
Since all things were created by the Word of God, there is nothing spiritual, natural, mental and so on that cannot come under the influence of the Word. The Word remains effective over the flesh and the enemy!
Let the word of God dwell richly in your heart. Make Bible study and meditation a priority.
I declare that I effectively use the word of God in overcoming the flesh and to stand strong in the face of every temptation.
