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.  Matthew 4:10
 
Here Jesus is quoting Deuteronomy 6:13 and 10:20.  We see that our Lord answered each time with Scripture. Certainly, that ought to have a message for all of us.
Why is it that many of us are having trouble living the Christian life?  May I say this very kindly: It is ignorance of the Word of God.  Notice that our Lord always answered by giving the Word of God.  I believe that the Word of God has an answer for your particular problem.  That doesn’t mean that I know the answer for your problem.  It doesn’t mean that your psychologist or psychiatrist knows the answer for your problem.  But God has an answer for your problem, and it is in His Word.  That is the reason we should know the Book better than we do.
Let me repeat, the Lord Jesus answered Satan every time out of the Word.  He did not say, “Well, I think this” or “I believe there is a better way of doing it.”  He said very definitely that the Word of God says thus and so.  He used the Word of God for His answer.  And for the child of God, that is enough. Do you use the Word of God to fight your battles?
