Luke 4:13 NLT: When the devil had finished tempting Jesus, he left him until the next opportunity came.
My dear friend in Christ, it is important for you to know that the tempter (Satan) is still very much around in our world today. Don’t assume that you are above his tests and trials. This is a spiritual issue that demands that you should be spiritually intelligent in order to fight and overcome by the help of the Lord Jesus who overcame him in the wilderness.
Jesus was tempted by the devil only to be left alone for another opportunity. Child of God, the devil will never stop scheming evil against you as long as you are in this world. If he could leave Jesus only for another opportunity, how much more you and I. Therefore you must master the strategy of winning all the time because he never gets tired and so you should never get tired as well.
If you read the entire story of the temptation, you will observe that Jesus overcame the devil using the word of God only. No human philosophy can make you a victor over the devil. Only by the word of God can you overcome. Meditate on the word of God all the time. Let it be in your heart. Discuss it with your friends and pray for God to make you understand better. This way, you will be a champion and the devil will have no place in your life. Remember the mandate of the enemy is to make you lose your faith in God. Never ever give up your faith in God. I call you blessed.
Declare to yourself loud: I am a Child of victory. I win all the time over the schemes of the devil.
1. Precious Holy Spirit, fill my heart with your word with which to overcome the schemes of the enemy, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
2. Please add your personal intentions.
