Luke 4: 3

“If You are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread.”

The devil told Jesus to “tell” this stone to become bread. He didn’t say, “Wave your hands over it and make it bread.” He didn’t even say “turn this stone into bread.” He knew that the power to change the circumstances was in the words Jesus would speak. Satan was an angel of God before he committed treason. He knows how the power of God works. He knows well that God created everything through the spoken word. Therefore, when he tempted Jesus, he tried to get Jesus to “say” something.

The devil does the same thing to you today. He tries to get you upset so that you will “say” something that is out of line with the word of God. The devil knows that the whole battle is won or lost in what you say. You can say, “I am sick” or you can say “By His stripes I am healed.” You can complain about your economic condition or you can say, “He meets all of my needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” If the devil can get you into unforgiveness and speaking that language instead of love, he can bind you. What you say is what you get so what are you saying? Don’t let the devil trick you into saying all sorts of unbiblical things. Get your words in line with the Word of God and defeat that old boy every time.
