“So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord.” Deuteronomy 8:3
Friends, God wants each one of us to know right now that we can only truly live the abundant life in Him by every word that He has spoken. As good and convenient as the physical things are that we need to physically survive, we cannot and should not live by only our physical senses, desires, ambitions and needs. We need that which feeds our spirit and will cause us to walk in total victory.
In God’s Word, He gives us wisdom for living. He shows us that we have:
- Keys to access all the blessings of the kingdom.
- Keys to walk in the power of the finished work of Calvary.
- Keys to understand the realm that He lives in.
In the wilderness, Satan tried to entice Jesus to turn stone into bread. He was actually asking Jesus to place His physical needs above His spiritual needs and respond to the physical realm instead of the spiritual realm. But, Jesus resisted the temptation by staying grounded in the Word of God and He overcame. Jesus knew the truth of the word of God and He applied it and got the victory over the temptations of the enemy.
If we are to resist the temptations of this life – and they are many – we are to stay grounded in the word and be led by the spirit and not our flesh.
So, as we wrap up this month on wisdom, we can clearly see that we have wisdom for living and it is found in the word of God!
Wisdom for living is:
- Living in the word,
- Living by the word and
- Living for the word.
As we apply our hearts to wisdom, we will overcome in every situation. Be encouraged today, God has given you the keys that you need to walk in total victory!
Your Victory is in the Word!
Your Wisdom is in the Word!
You cannot be defeated!
Happy Friday all!
