Many times when we are faced with overwhelming circumstances and temptations we are tempted to go inside of a cave or shell . In Matthew chapter 4:4 the devil tempted Jesus in one of his darkness hours . One of his responses to the devil was that it was written that men should not just live on bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.
We shut the mouth of the enemy with the word of God. Hebrews 4:12 tells us that the word of shod is alive, active and sharper than a two edge sword.
As God’s children we cannot afford to ignore the studying of God’s word.
