FIRE SCRIPTURE: Matthew 4:4-11 (KJV)
4 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.
5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,
6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.
10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.
Outline for MFM Devotional Today 3 January 2023
This year, I encourage you to take full advantage of the inestimable benefits that the word of God offers every believer. The word of God is a very potent and highly veritable weapon that heaven has made available to all believers to reign in life. Let God’s word dwell in you richly (Colossians 3:16). Delight in it and meditate in it day and night. Let it be your standard for living. You will be like the tree that is planted by the rivers of water that brings its fruit in its season. Your leaves will not wither and all that you do will prosper (Psalm 1:1-3).
When Joshua became Moses’ successor and God saw the herculean task before him, He gave him the weapon and prescription for success: “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; thou shall meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success” (Joshua 1:8-9). Similarly, as you begin the journey of 2023, make God’s word your companion and trusted weapon for victory, success and all-round fulfilment. Study it daily, memorise it, meditate on it and quote it to overcome the tempter and accuser, as Jesus did in Matthew 4:4-11. Make it your compass throughout this year and beyond. Let it be a lamp for your feet and a light on your path; you will find divine direction for your life and huge success in your endeavours.
In addition, the word of God is described as the word of righteousness and as strong meat. It will help you to mature as a believer and to discern both good and evil (Hebrews 5:14). I counsel you to make yourself a word addict this year; study it to show yourself approved as a workman that needs not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15). More importantly, this year, endeavour to be a doer of the word of God than in the years gone by. This will be your best year ever, in the name of Jesus.
MEMORY VERSE: “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” – Hebrews 4:12
God’s word is your most powerful weapon.
PRAISE AND WORSHIP:
Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit
