“IT IS WRITTEN”

In a law court and as a lawyer, all I need do to win the Judge’s attention and albeit the Judgment is simply to say “My Lord, it is written:
Ø  Section 4 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria states……….
Ø  Order 4 rule 5 of the High Court of Lagos State (civil procedure) rules states….
Ø  In the case of Gani Fawehinmi against The State, it was written that…..”

My referral of the Judge to laid down statutes and decided authorities simply settles the matter, foundation of my argument having been well established.

My walk with God is exactly like this!!!

The devil attempted to tempt Jesus thrice but he succeeded not, Jesus yielded not, because he had a working knowledge of the scripture. He said “It is written:
Ø  Man shall not live by bread alone……
Ø  He will give his angels charge over me…
Ø  You must worship God alone….”





I love the New Living Translation which says-“The scripture says…”

A  question that comes to mind this minute is….what does the scripture say concerning my present challenges, my health, my marriage, my finances, my career and all other aspects of my life? I am also throwing the questions to you my dear readers, are you going through a difficult moment right now and you are about to give up? No! Remember, quitters never win; I encourage you to dig into the scriptures and understand what has been written…

I am also learning and struggling (through the grace of God) on how to stay in the place of the study of the word, because I believe that it is when I do so that I can have a working knowledge of what the scripture says, that is when I will also be able to face the devil just like Jesus did three consecutive times. Scripture recorded that after Jesus replies to the devil, the devil went away.

 So my dear folks, I am challenging us to pursue the Devil/Goliaths/challenges in our lives by staying in the WORD, let us meditate on the word because of a truth the word works, if it did not, then our dear Jesus would not have succeeded in overcoming the temptations with the word.

Let us all learn how to say “IT IS WRITTEN…”

With love and prayers,
Omo’ba!

I concur. They say when you pray with scriptures, your prayer has more effect. The propblem is that most of us don't know the scriptures so well. This leads us to daily scriptural meditation...

Amen! God has given us a word for every situation and standing in faith confess it in the face of the enemy's attacks. God bless you.

I'm constantly blessed by the way you use the scripture to confront any situation. For if we go by the word and use it as He has enjoined us to, we shall be victorious in every aspect of our lives. For God's word shall return to Him Void. Thanks for this reminder sis.

This is very thoughtfully explained. I agree that the words of the bible are still relevant in a lot of situations.

Isaiah 55:11
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

That's how powerful God's word is. It cannot return empty. Guess what? God's word in our mouths is as powerful as God's word in His mouth, so when we speak His word, He's committed to bring it to pass.

Your illustration makes it so much clearer to me.
Thank you
