Topic: RESIST THE DEVIL
(God’s Attention Is Drawn To You) Matthew 4:10-11
Our most gracious father in heaven, we thank you for life again in Jesus mighty name. Amen. Take good care of our life even as you multiply peace in all of spheres of our endeavours in Jesus name. Amen. Thank you in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Jesus was at the point of need but not lustful and unnecessarily desirous to meet with those needs. The devil came with the intention to tempt the Lord Jesus Christ in view that Jesus will be desirous to fall into the temptation. This would have been the foundation of the fall of the ministry of Jesus Christ, rather it became the ground of success for the Lord.
&But Jesus said to him, &No, I will not worship you, Satan, so go away! God has said in the scriptures, 'It is to the Lord your God whom you must bow down, and you must worship only him! Then the devil went away, and at that moment, angels came to Jesus and took care of him.& Matthew 4:10-11 (UDB)
Jesus Christ resisted the devil and couldn't await to bear the rebuke of the Lord. The bible said the devil went away and the angel came to replace the the devil and ministered to the Lord Jesus Christ. When you resist the devil, you give room for the ministration of the angels of the Lord for you. Meaning you fulfil the act of submission to God and enjoy more of God.
I pray that you will not fall out of your God given purpose in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Amen. Evil influence of the devil active against you shall be deactivated and hence the angels of God shall minister for your good in Jesus name. Amen.
