Your Answer Is In His Word

Proverbs 4:20–22 - My son, give attention 2 my words; incline your ear 2 my sayings. 21- Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart;

God has given us a sure way 2 receive the answers 2 our problems and challenges. It is His Word. Every answer or solution we need is found in the Bible.

Yet, many Christians are not walking victoriously in certain areas of their lives. This is bcoz the devil continuously wages a war of distraction against them. He has managed 2 take them away from the one thing that can bring them victory — the Word. He will do everything possible 2 prevent them from opening the Bible bcoz he knows that the Word will deliver them.

The distraction can be very subtle: A lot of things 2 get done, a lot of TV programs that interest u, or it may take the form of a big problem that makes u feel that u need 2 focus all your attention on it. The enemy knows that if he can get u 2 take your eyes off the Word of God, he can keep u from winning the battle.

When u are going through a tough time, it is not enough 2 know that God’s answer 2 the problem is “somewhere in the Bible”. Find the scripture in which God has promised the solution. Meditate on it until the truth of that scripture is revealed 2 u. When u do this, no demon or devil can prevent that word from God from bearing fruit in your life.

Even Jesus Himself used the Word 2 defeat the devil in the wilderness — “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’” (Matthew 4:4) The way 2 defeat the enemy is with “It is written…”

My friend, there is no substitute for the written Word. God tells us that we will find life and health if we give our attention 2 His Word and keep it in the midst of our hearts. So get into the Word and let God’s promises abide in u.
