In Matthew 4:1-11 the Bible shows that after the amazing happenings at Jesus’ baptism, He was led by the Holy Spirit to the desert to be tempted by the devil.
Through the battles my family has dealt with and my hands lifted to God asking ‘WHY’….Here’s what he has shown me.
* Don’t rest in success. Look what happened to Jesus after his baptism. When you receive incredible blessings from God, watch out! Satan targets us when we are off guard.
* Stay in Gods will. I remember saying “if it’s this hard it can’t be Gods will” and I would quit. I found out that just because I was doing the right thing doesn’t mean I was immune of evil. Jesus was in God’s will when the enemy attacked Him. – When things are bleak, don’t lean to your own understanding. That’s the time to ‘trust in the Lord with all your heart’. Prov. 3:5.
* Know the Scriptures. Every time Jesus was attacked, He countered with ‘it is written’. God’s word is called “the sword of the spirit” Eph 6:17. It is our primary weapon against evil. Jesus used it to defeat satan, and so must we.
