Summary: What you believe determines what you say and do. Here’s what the Bible says about you...
As you begin this new year, one of the greatest gifts you can present to God is to believe - truly accept - what He says about you.
Jesus resisted the devil by applying God’s Word. When you are attacked, it is the knowledge and use of the Word that allows you to resist temptation. We cannot resist him by human will or human effort. We resist him by spiritual means - by using the Word of God, being empowered by His Holy Spirit, and through prayer.
As we look at the Word, apply the Word in faith and obedience, allowing the Spirit to empower that action through prayer we can be victorious.
Print this study, post it in on your bathroom mirror or frig, and read out loud at least once each day and see what a difference God’s Word makes in your life:
