But he answered, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.’”
God knows that you need food, water, and shelter to survive. But God wants to do more than survive. He wants you to have joy, peace, purpose, and happiness. You can get these from the Word of God.
God’s promises joy as you believe in faith that all things are according to God’s plan. As you see growth in your life, you can thank God and receive joy.
God’s Word imparts peace. Jesus Himself has promised to give you peace, His peace. Jesus had complete peace in a whirlwind of a storm on the sea of Galilee. He had peace surrounded by hundreds of angry men crying to crucify Him. He had peace when all His friends left Him.
God’s Word gives purpose. Your life is purchased with the great price of Christ’s life. As such, your purpose is to live your full potential God puts in you.
God’s Word gives happiness. Happy is you when you dwell in the safety of God’s Word and Love. Nothing can shake you, as God is your surety and hope. Even death holds no sway as it is simply a sweet sleep till Jesus wakes you up.
God wants you to have all these abundant blessings. You just need to open His Word and receive it. Live by His Word, today.
