Man shall not live by bread alone

There are times when we are tempted by one or several things that come into our lives, one is when we lack food, another is when we are being attacked by a family member, the evil one always seeks to tempt us.

And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry.

Matthew 4:2

Jesus being in the desert was tempted by the enemy, who came to Him tempting Him with the same Scriptures, one of the strategies to make Jesus fall was to turn that stone into bread, but Jesus answered him and said: Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.

Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.

Matthew 4:3

This was a form that the enemy used to tempt Jesus after having lasted forty days and forty nights fasting and was hungry, but the tempter thought that Jesus could fall at the call of the enemy.

Satan knew that Jesus was the Messiah, son of the Most High God, but he looked for a way to see if the Son could sin against the father, here we can see that the enemy did not care that Jesus was the son of God and tempted Him.

It is good to keep in mind that satan will always seek the way to tempt you, he will use any kind of object or something else to make you sin against God.

But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ ”

Matthew 4:4

There will come times when the enemy will attack us, but we have to recognize that sometimes we have a need where we may lack food and because of the lack of food we will also be attacked. But God never leaves His children alone and besides supplying us He also helps us to be patient and to wait on Him.

How to grow for salvation

    The author is the Word of God, which made the earth and heaven, stars and planets, all living creatures and everything…. The powerful word of God that shouted out:
    “Let there be light: and there was light.”
    Powerful word, that moves seas and mountains, that makes all the earth shake….
    That word of God is the VERB, who came down to us, the Sun of God who was in the beginning… He is the bread which the Father has descended from heaven to feed us, THE BREAD OF LIFE….

  5. After meditating on these words, I felt my heart break. From the trials of my daily struggles, I am carrying a heavy burden that I don’t know how to lay it down. For all to understand, permit me explain. I will love to read marvelously your wised suggestions.

    In July 2016, I had admission to study abroad and a friend help me pay my flight. I had a forest part time job earning some money so, I sent him and his brother money as best as I could to help them.

    After a year, I encouraged this friend to follow me abroad for studies. At the moment, he wasn’t able to pay fees and I lent some money to help him pay his fees, promising he was to refund it when he has sold some properties. Unfortunately, he was refused visa, and the fees refunded to him. But he has refused to pay back the loan and is now charging me against all his expenses for processing his documents and the flight.

    At the moment, I have paid 3/4 of the loan but as if not enough, my friend’s entire family now accuse me of scamming my friend. These are persons that I love and trust with everything I had. My heart is so heavy and burdened. Please, how can I over come this?

  8. Valerie, after thinking about your economical problem, I think that money business is a bad thing and it is worse when someone whom you have helped has betrayed your confidence.
    Really Patricia’s advice is good, you need that God help you in such a terrific fuss and he touches the mind of your friend also so that he accepts his responsibility and try to solve your bad situation.
    May be your family can help you.
    Trust in the Lord and put your faith in Him. As Patricia says if you trust in the Lord he will not leaves you.
