Let's follow Jesus and the Apostles, and use words that affirm scripture. Especially in matters of temptation it is vitally important to follow the Jesus' Template.
4Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man does not live on bread alone.'
8Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.'
12Jesus answered, "It says: 'Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'
This is a very, very important pattern. We use words that affirm scripture to overcome Satan's temptations, because that is how Jesus overcame Satan. We follow Jesus, and we use his pattern.
Our words contain power either way. Either to life, or to death. We might as well be followers of Jesus and use our Words for life and to overcome Satan we must use the written Word of God.
Words contain power to overcome Satan and any type of temptation can be overcome when we say, words that affirm scripture. Our words can hurt or heal others, ourselves and our relationship with God.
Lord, help us overcome any type and any level of temptation. Help us understand that as we follow you, we also are to follow how you used words.
