God’s written word is more important than you may understand. It’s more than just words that lead us to Jesus. In fact, it’s more than just a look into the past and what’s to come for Christians in the future. If it is written in the bible you can take it to the bank because God never lies and His Word is true!
The Word of God is alive and active! There is power in the words of Jesus and all the words in the bible because they are inspired by God Himself! So Scripture is for us to learn from and use the way God expects us too.
We can use the scriptures to fight off the enemy which is Satan. He tries to distort the word so it’s important to know exactly what God’s word says in order to not be tricked.
For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.
It Is Written – So Start Using It
So the question I put to you is this. If you understand it is written, do you know how to use the Word to make your life better? Do you know how to use the Word to fight spiritual battles? Do you even know what the Word of God says about your particular situation?
There is a lot to learn but if you diligently search the scriptures you will find what you need for your situation.
The Word of God has everything in it you will ever need to be prosperous, healthy, and spiritual! It has the answers to help you solve problems, and God will even use angels to help you out when needed.
It Is Written – If God Be For You
Who Can Be Against You?
Let’s take a look at when Jesus had been fasting for 40 days and Satan came to tempt Him. Jesus didn’t get upset or turn the wrong way. Read below how He uses the written word to stop the devil in his tracks.
It Is Written Scriptures
Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward hungry.
And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
But he answered and said, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”
Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,
And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands, they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Jesus said unto him, “It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.”
Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.
Then saith Jesus unto him, “Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”
Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.
You see that after Jesus had answered Satan with scriptures he leaves Jesus alone and the angels come and give Jesus food and water and minister to him because His fast was over.
We can fight Satan in the same way, using the word of God to defeat him!
Jesus didn’t argue with the devil, nor did He raise His voice. He knew what was written in the bible and stood by it! We should do the same thing. You’ve probably heard that old saying that if God says it, that settles it!
Learning to trust and truly stand on God’s Word is the key to unlocking the door to faith and living an exceptional life.
Satan usually comes to you in your mind. He is persistent and is relentless in putting worries and wrong ideas into your head. He can’t read your mind, but he can put thoughts into it. He gets a great satisfaction when you follow his lead and start to believe those bad things he inserted in your mind instead of God’s Word.
It’s time to learn how to use the written word to your advantage, which is what God wants you to do. First, when wrong thoughts come into your head you should immediately rebuke them. Jesse Duplantis has a saying that I love. I’ll share that with you now and hope it ministers to you like it did me.
When Satan puts doubt about something in your head, just tell him out loud that you “doubt his doubt”. Satan will be shocked you are doubting what he is trying so hard to make you doubt. He is such a loser! It sounds silly but it works.
But more than that it’s important to fight Satan where it really hurts and that’s using the word of God to do battle with him. In order to do that you must know and understand what the word says. Spend time in prayer and bible study on a daily basis and get your life prospering as God intended.
Did you notice how Jesus said “It is written” when he was responding to Satan? We can do that too. If you are fighting illness then tell Satan, “It is written that by Jesus stripes I was healed”, or “It is written that I can ask anything in Jesus name and He will give it to me”. These scriptures can be found below.
Isaiah 53:5 and Mark 11:23-24
Some people really misunderstand the scripture in Mark, thinking they can simply ask for frivolous things, but it’s not entirely true. There are many other scriptures where Jesus says we can have the desires of our hearts and we can ask for anything, but it has a condition.
Do God’s Blessings Have a Condition?
He says those that are following His commandments will be the ones to actually receive from Him. And if you are following His commandments and staying in the word you won’t be asking for things that aren’t His will.
It’s not that God cares if you have a Royals Royce, but it should not be the thing you worship or put before Him. In most cases people can’t even believe for a Toyota, let alone a luxury car. The more you serve Him and the more you give, then the more God will bless you with the desires of your heart.
The written Word of God is the most important tool you will ever have while on this earth! God tells you not to worry because He will supply all your need, yet people stress themselves out so bad they have to seek medical treatment.
Have you ever seen a bird on a branch having a nervous breakdown? Of course not and the bible says God cares much more for us that the birds! Worry is a sin, so don’t do it!
What Can The Word of God
Do For Me?
It can feed you spiritual food that will help you grow into a soldier for Christ. It’s the living bread and water that Jesus talks about during His ministry.
The Word is powerful and sharper than any two edged sword and it’s what you need to fight your spiritual battles. Along with the rest of the armor of God the Word gives you power beyond belief!
All confessions you make out loud from the Word have the power to create a new reality for you. The Word can manifest miracles in your life. This means in your finances, health, and relationships.
It is written you can even call upon the ministering angels for protection and help.
Most importantly, it’s not what the Word can do for you but what it can do for others. The bible says that if we confess with our mouths that Jesus is the son of God and that he died and rose again to give us eternal life, we shall be saved. If God did nothing more than that, it should be enough!
Get into the Word and know what your rights as a Christian are and learn all the promises God our Father has made to you. If someone gives you a gift but you never open it, then you haven’t received what’s inside.
It’s the same with God’s promises. If you don’t know what they are you can’t receive them and they do you know good at all.
This post only touches on the subject of using “it is written”, and confessing the word to bring changes in our lives. Please reach out to some of the links on this page for more details on some of what was mentioned here today.
