Text: Matthew 4: 3-11
Theme: IT’S WORD WAR!
Memory Verse: “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12)
That we will be faced with many challenges and battles on our onward journey to Heaven is not in doubt. Jesus had warned us so we would be prepared. The good news is that He did not leave us defenseless. He has given us weapons of warfare necessary to win every battle that will come our way. If you are however not deploying these weapons, you have only yourself to blame. One of the mighty weapons of war is the word of God.
For every situation you find yourself in there is an appropriate word that will deal with that situation. Are you poor? His word says, “He shall supply your needs according to His riches in glory.” Are you in want? His word says, “All things are yours,” and you should “ask and it shall be given unto you”. Are you sick? His word says, “By His stripes, we are healed.” Are you barren? His word says, “None shall be barren or cast their young.” Are you oppressed? His word says, “Even the captive of the mighty shall be delivered.” There is always a word in the Bible that addresses whatever problem you are going through.
In our text today, Jesus showed us exactly how we are to respond when we meet trials and tribulations. He challenged every tribulation/temptation with the word of God. He stood firm on the word knowing that it is the absolute truth and does not lie. With this, He was able to overcome the devil and his tricks.
However, a weapon no matter how powerful is useless if you don’t use it.
Many Christians when faced with a crisis or battle, do not use the word of God available to them. Instead, they start to cry and utter words that the enemy will use against them, giving the enemy more power to harm them.
The word of God is like a nuclear weapon. The enemy cannot withstand it when and if deployed. You must therefore stand on it and use it to pull down all the strongholds of the devil when faced with trouble. God will honor His word.
Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:
- Every battle raging in my life, receive the fire of the Holy Ghost, in Jesus’ name.
- O Lord, give me the grace to meditate on your word day and night so I will be able to stand the evil day, in Jesus’ name.
- Lord, send me a word that will change my situation, in Jesus’ name.
- Let none of the words of my G.O fall to the ground, in Jesus’ name.
- Lord, we ask for peace in our nation. Let every sign of war fizzle out, in Jesus’ name.
