“It is written!” is a statement that carries great authority For the believer. Our Lord used the Word of God to defeat Satan, and so may we. But the Word of God is not only a sword for battle; it is also a light to guide us in this dark world, food that strengthens us, and water that washes us.

The Word of God has a sanctifying ministry in the lives of dedicated believers. Those who delight in God’s Word, meditate on it, and seek to obey it will experience God’s direction and blessing in their lives. The Word reveals God’s mind, so we should learn it; God’s heart, so we should love it; God’s will, so we should live it. Our whole being—mind, will, and heart— should be controlled by the Word of God.

It’s true: “How sweet are Thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through Thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way. Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” (Psalm 119:103-105).

Going deeper: Matthew 4:1-11; Ephesians 6:17; 1 Peter 2:2; Ephesians 5:25, 27; Psalm 1:1-3.

Action assignment: Memorize Psalm 119:103-105 (see above). Use the verse in a time of prayer.
