Fortune Cookie

Matthew 4:4 But he answered, “It is written,” ‘Man shall not live by bread alone,
but by every word that comes from the mouth of God. ‘”

We can’t pick God’s promises out of the Bible like a fortune cookie. All promises must be taken in context of where they are given. Promises match situations. God told the Hebrews in the desert to go into a country and kill all the residents and He would give them the land. That doesn’t mean we are to go into a country, kill all the residents and the land is ours. We must learn to combine God’s written word with the leading of His Holy Spirit by prayer and meditation. This applies to all promises in the Bible. We have the promise of salvation IF we believe IN Jesus not if we just believe Jesus came to earth. Satan knows Jesus is God’s Son yet doesn’t believe IN Him. Let us be sure to speak our words and prayers in faith founded on an understanding of the promises and the leading of God’s Holy Spirit.
