God bless you,
In life we encounter many obstacles and temptations. As we try are very hard best to be obedient and to live according Gods law we still get insure sometimes, or tempted to go back to our old way to live. In all this if you have chosen God the Almighty the Alpha and Omega and you made your decision to devote completely to Him, you will know that you reward will come from Him. It is not easy to overcome the obstacles, but if you know your bible and you that God is with you nothing but nothing can your move your faith you have in God.
If we look at the passage where Jesus being tempted by satan it recalls knowledge of the word of God and know that the purpose for what you are going through is for the best. Without trial you can’t reach your blessing. (satan tries to steal your blessing away by distracting you) Without sacrifice you can’t reach succes. Those things work in pair.
Jesus in the wilderness; Matthew 4:1-11 KJV
1. Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. 3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. 4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. 5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, 6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. 7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. 8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. 11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.
As human Jesus was tempted. We as people get tempted also, satan uses anything that can distract you. Situation a person or something else from keeping you reach your purpose. But I always heard this sentence never loose your Focus (God). Anytime you take the decision to follow Jesus, satan brings something in your life to question that decision. Today I want to encourage to stand firm. You will receive your blessing.
