Daily Thought – Triumph over Temptations – Be a world changer

Comments

Verse: ”Then Jesus was led by the Spirit ……. angels came and attended him” Mat 4:1,11

When we look how Jesus started His ministry, there is specific instance mentioned in Mathew 4:1 to 11, that’s the temptation of Jesus, just before Jesus began His 3.5 years of ministry; that changed the world for ever. Jesus ministry brought salvation to whole world, His death and resurrection gifted us this privilege.

How did Jesus win over the temptation? Let us follow the same example, so Lord could use us to change the world.

Word: The first temptation was attack on physical need. Today if you have a need, listen “Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Mathew 4:4 In our need, lets trust in the promises of God, than looking at resources. Let us learn the word of God.

Wait: Second test was to prove credibility, listen “Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.” Mathew 4:7 We have nothing to prove in front of men, when Lord decides and He will defend our cause. Are you crushed, let it go, Lord will rise for the defend less. Trust the Lord.

Worship: Third test was shortcuts to reach the expected goal, listen “Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.” Mathew 4:10. Let us not take any short to achieve our goals, let us continue to worship the Lord and serve Him alone.

Prayer: Lord, help me to overcome temptation, anoint me that I will follow your example. Lord, here I am, use me Lord. Amen.
