Matthew 3:10-11 "Get out if here Satan," Jesus told him, "for the Scriptures say, 'You must worship The Lord your God and serve him only.'"
Then the devil went away, and the angels came and took care of Jesus.
This was the third time that Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness, every time Jesus replied, "The Scriptures say." Jesus used the scriptures to fight, to resist what Satan offered. Jesus knew how important the Scriptures were when dealing with the devil! If perfect Jesus needed Scripture, don't we?
I am learning every day, the power of Scripture. I still have a long way to go before I am using Scripture in every part of my life...but I am getting there...little by little. Thank God that He honors our efforts and allows us time to grow.
I am so thankful that when I have used scripture in my life it works so wonderfully! I have used it to quiet my fears, give me strength, heal my body, quiet anxiety, keep depression at bay, to help me fall asleep. The more Scripture I learn the better able I am to fight off Satan and the moe successful I am at living life.
