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. - Matt 4:4
I was in church recently, and the message was about the scripture above. Man shall not live by bread but by the word of God. I found this so interesting because many truly believe that they live by the word of God but when you examine their lives, they really do not.
I have found that it is first necessary to be honest with one's self before they can actually walk in the word. If you suppress, ignore, and act like the conviction of God is not there, you will deceive yourself. However, if God is speaking to you - even if it is concerning something you have never spoken about, let His word confrnt that area in you.
It is the word of God that is able to save us. We must live by every word. So do not approach the word of God hiding from it. Instead, be bold in the face of your own failure, acknowledge your wrongs, resolve to change, and repent before the Lord. This will have your heart as clean as a whistle!
