… “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God'” (Matthew 4:4 NKJV)
Jesus knew the Word of God, and He knew how to overcome temptation. He spoke the Word to the enemy… the WORD spoke the Word, thus making it very clear to all exactly how important the Word of God is. We need the Word of God to sustain our very lives, just as much as we need food in order to live.
Without the Word of God, we will surely die of starvation. Without His word, we will wander aimlessly… “The time is surely coming,” says the Sovereign LORD, “when I will send a famine on the land — not a famine of bread or water but of hearing the words of the LORD. People will stagger everywhere from sea to sea, searching for the word of the LORD, running here and going there, but they will not find it. Beautiful girls and fine young men will grow faint and weary, thirsting for the LORD’s word…” (Amos 8:11-13 NLT)
Hear the Word of the Lord people and live… “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.”
