PRIORITIZE THE WORD OF GOD.
“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.” Matthew 4:4 (KJV)
In Matthew 4, Jesus Christ was confronted by the enemy. The Bible says He had fasted, was hungry, and that it was time to eat. The enemy suggested to Him what He should do. His back was against the wall but He didn’t do as the enemy said. He said to the devil, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4, KJV). Three times the devil tempted Him and three times He reminded the devil of what is written. He did not get tired of using the word, and the Bible says that the devil left Him for a season. Then the angels came and ministered to Him.
If Jesus, the word of God, gave the word first place, how then can you survive without prioritising it? Everything you need is in the word. The word will put food on your table, clothes on your back, and a shelter over your head. Let everything else follow after the word because with the word your victory is guaranteed. If Jesus succeeded, then you are sure to succeed.
The word of God is your counsellor. We should imitate Jesus, who will always do the will of God. He said, “My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work” (John 4:34, KJV). Jesus was saying that the nourishment food gives to the body is like the nourishment obedience to the word of God gives His inner man. The Bible says that God magnifies His word above His name. His covenant He will never break and He will not alter that which has gone out of His mouth. Proverbs 3:5-6 (KJV) says, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
Prioritise the word and all that pertains to you will be preserved. I bless you in the name of the Lord.
