Our Daily Bread

bread1

Matthew 4:4

But He answered, “It is written: Man must not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”

The Bible is very special because without it no Christian can grow into a mature man of God, have the armor of God on and be strong enough to defeat the devil. We eat food because our bodies need the nourishment that food provides well, in the same way the word of God gives nourishment to our spirit and strengthens our faith in Christ so that we might live a life that pleases Him and have the strength to fight against the demonic deception. The word of God acts like a filter that the more you read the Bible the better your filter gets. The filter works like this: imagine someone comes to your door and want’s to share with you their holy book or even from the Bible but how do you know that what they are saying is false doctrine, scriptural or interpreted correctly. If you know the scriptures very well than anything that contradicts the scripture you will pick up on it and it would not affect you like a filter that doesn’t let in anything that would harm your body pass through so in the same way your spiritual filter would keep false doctrine from taking root in your heart.

The World hates The One Who Belongs To Christ

John 15:18-19

18“If the world hates you, understand that it hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own. However, because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of it, the world hates you.

Even though you might think that you are unloved by some people or even those that are close to you. Remember that no matter your stands with people of this world Jesus will always love you and will never leave you nor forsake you now and forever. As Christians Jesus said that we will be hated by the world but that’s OK because that means that you are living a life that pleases the Lord. When the world loves you than you should worry because the world is hostile toward Christ since the world is under the influence of the devil. You must prepare your mind for battle because the desire of the world wage war with your spirit to sin with Satan’s influence but remember this that the Lord overcame the world so by His strength you will overcome the world too.

Jesus Christ: The Protector of Our Souls

Psalm 18:2

The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer, my God, my mountain where I seek refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

In Matthew 7:24-25 Jesus said that those who hear His Words and puts them into practice even though the waves and winds beat on that house it will not collapse because the Rock is Jesus and He will uphold you. The fortress is a wall that encompasses you and provides protection so that the enemy can’t get to you. Jesus protects you from Satan’s attacks which the fortress would be compared to the Full Armor of God found in Ephesians 6:10-18. How does the protection work? It works by first of all putting your trust and faith in Jesus as Lord and savior in what He did for you on the cross that He died for your sins and on the third day He rose from the grave. The second would be to read the Word of God every day and do what it says so that you would be in right standing with Jesus and He will protect you because you are living a life in obedience and doing His will. If you are in disobedience He would allow the enemy to attack you and defeat you so that you may repent of your sins and turn back to Him. No matter what happens in your life Jesus will always save you from your troubles and demonic bombardments because Jesus promised to those who love Him and put their trust in Him that He will not allow hell itself to conquer you as found in:

Matthew 16:18

And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the forces of Hades will not overpower it.

1 John 5:18

We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the One who was born of God keeps them safe, and the evil one cannot harm them.
