“But He replied, It has been written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:4 Amplified
Jesus has now been in the wilderness for forty days with nothing to eat. How typical of the enemy to tempt us when we are at our weakest and so that’s what he tries to do to our Lord. The preceding scripture to our verse today says, “And the tempter came and said to Him, If you are God’s Son, command these stones to be made loaves of bread.” We know that Jesus could have done that, He did it later when he fed 5,000 people. He wanted the devil and us to know that the most important thing is God’s Word.
Nutritionists say that the best thing you can possibly eat is raw fruit and vegetables, because they are in their original state and full of nutrients to heal and strengthen us. God’s Word is like that for us, there is more power in one verse of scripture than anything on earth. When we are weak He will make us strong through His Word, speak His word out loud and see your life change.
