You remember when Jesus was driven into the desert and tempted by Satan?
Luke 4:1-13 click here to read this scripture
I can just hear Satan cajoling, coercing, trying to speak with false authority, “If”!
Can you hear that? “If you are the son of God…”
Do you see the use of the word “if”? I never saw it before. I’ve always seen the temptation of the enemy trying to get Jesus to break his fast, by telling him to turn the stone into bread. But I never paid attention to the “If”. Not only was he tempting Jesus, but he was trying to put “doubt” in him.
Satan is the same today. He uses the same old schemes to try and get what he wants. But, as Ecclesiastes tells us, “…There is nothing new under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 1:9
Just as Satan tried to put doubt in Jesus, he tries to put doubt in us. He tries to put doubt about God in us. Have you heard these doubts? When you hear the doubts, quickly speak God’s Word. God’s love will cover you. His love will sustain you. His love endures forever.
Keep believing in Him, keep seeking Him, keep asking Him.
When you put the Word of God in you, more than the words of the enemy, there will be no more room for Satan.
