    Even Jesus our Savior, The Son of Man and the Son of God, After He had fasted forty days (40 days) he was weak, but He was the WORD, so He spoke to HaSatan three times from the OLD TESTAMENT, "IT is WRITTEN " So we must hide the WORD in our heart that we must know the WORD and Speak it in Fairh! "FOR IT IS WRITTEN!" There is POWER Iin the WORD! We need the WORD 24/7! We must stay focused and not distracted! The storms may come and Go, but If We Know the WORD, SOEAK TO THAT STORM to BE STILL and Know that HE IS GOD! They forgot who was in the Boat with them! That's what happens to Us in our daily living.. distractions come, and we forget, "He said He will NEVER LEAVE US" KEEP THE FAITH...allow HIM to take you to the other side...BUT GOD, GOD GOT YOU!

    The heroes of faith in the Old Testament learned that it was the LORD that won the battle every time. Their part in any victory was to simply believe and do as he commanded them.

    In Matthew chapter 4, Jesus withstood the devil's temptations by using scripture. The better we know the Word of God, the greater our ability to stand against the assaults of the tempter.

    In John chapter 15 we learn that unless we abide in Jesus Christ, we can do nothing. We wither as a dried branch off the vine.

    In Ephesians 6, we are instructed in the proper use of the armour of God and told that our warfare is in the spiritual realm, not against flesh and blood.

    1 Peter 5:8-11 "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

    1 John chapter 2 gives us some great instruction on the battles we face with our own nature and the ways of this world.

    1 John 5:4-5"For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?"

    Revelation 12:11 "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death."
