Digest God's Word- To learn what new food is like or to enjoy it you first have to digest it. Once we discover God's word we need to read it, take it all in, learn the passages. When we know the scriptures and apply them to our lives we can become conquerors against this world. -Psalm 119:18
Delight in God's Word- A good book, good friendships, a pleasant evening out, good conversation. We can find delight in all these things. We can also find delight in the Bible when we read it. Finding delight helps us want to be around Jesus and what He teaches and we will want to learn more. Keeping Jesus close, He will help us conquer.
Depend on God's Word- God has shared in scripture how much He will be by our side, helping us defeat our enemies. And like in the desert when Jesus depended on scripture, He was able to conquer the devil. The best part about the scriptures is they will never fail. They will last forever, God's Word will be with us forever and His love will never fail.
Let God's Word help you conquer today!
