THEME: THE WORD OF GOD
“Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” 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.”
-The word of God is a shield against temptations and a weapon that counters the snares of the devil. When Jesus was tempted, He quoted Deuteronomy 8:3 that says, “..that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the LORD.” When the devil found no room to defeat Jesus, he left Him and the angels came and ministered to Him. The word of God is the best route for us to flee from the devil and he will flee from us. The word of God is the living bread of life, we are called to rely on it every time. We are reminded to read and study the word of God so that we may grow spiritual and overcome temptations.
Almighty and Everlasting God we thank You for this beautiful day that You have given unto us. Thank You for Your mercy and grace upon our lives. We bless Your name Jesus for Your love and blessings upon our lives, families, children and nation. Remember all the students who are preparing to undertake their exams that You may grant them knowledge and wisdom to succeed in all the papers. Be with all those who are waiting on You Lord for their spouses that You may remember them; for Your word says that none shall lack a mate. Have mercy on all the broken families, relationships and marriages that You may intervene with Your divine love. Heal all those who are sick and restore their health merciful Jesus. Heal our hearts dear Jesus that it may be fertile soil to hear Your word and grow in us. Heal our business that we may proper, continue to prosper and become very prosperous like Your servant Isaac. Heal our economy merciful Father that we may bear much fruit for the glory of Your name. You have called us to love Jesus, give us the grace to love You and our neighbors as ourselves. May Your word gain root in us so that we may overcome all temptations for the glory and honor of Your name. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us now and forever more. Amen
