Standing in the middle of the temple surrounded by the top thinkers of His day, Jesus stands poised for the trap they have set. They begin with words dripping and coated in honey. False platitudes of honor and respect are their weapon of choice. Then comes the tangled web of a question meant to silence Him permanently.
But the one who formed and created the mind that thinks with wit and clever imagination could not be trapped. Jesus not only answers but flips the script and silences them with this statement. “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God.” Matthew 22:29 (NIV)
I can promise you this is why we also error. It still comes down to these two things. We don’t know the scriptures or the power of God. It doesn’t matter what the problem or question in life is. The answer is found in the Word of God and the Power of God.
If the enemy has set a trap for you, there is a way out. There is an answer to the question you can’t seem to answer. Dive deep into the Word of God. Search out the wisdom from the one who is all-knowing and all-powerful. Seek His intervention by knowing the mind of Christ and His great power. There is nothing too difficult for Him. He told us that nothing is impossible to Him that believes. Believes what? The Word and the power of God.
You are not a victim but an overcomer. Today you can silence the enemy with just one Word.
Blessings to you and yours,
