Theme: Manifested to Dominate
Text: Matthew 4:1-11
Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted[a]by the devil.
It may be a constant wonder of yours to find out why God allows the devil and His team to compete with you in your quest to fulfil your purpose.
The seed knows little about its inner strength until it has to compete with the weeds for the minerals, sunshine and the rest. Well, how true is that? When the devil went to tempt Jesus in the wilderness, Jesus had been sent there by the Spirit of God after He had been baptised. Then the devil came to tempt Him, quoting scriptures (the light unto our path). The devil then, capitalising on Jesus’ present state, tried to tip him off his provision (minerals) by asking Him to be his own provider, his protection by trying to jump off the top of the mountain.
Jesus’ position in the presence of God did not stop the devil from coming and did not stop him from stealing the light from us by the wrong usage of scriptures. So would your position in the presence of God not stop the devil either.
