Brought from repentance and being full of the Holy Spirit, I was led into the wilderness. During that time in the wilderness, God had planned for me to fast and I didn’t listen. It is because of this disobedience and the consequences of sin that I have learned the following lessons from the Lord.
If the enemy questions, “if you’re a child of God then hasn’t God given you a free will to choose whatever it is that you want to eat?”
As Jesus, I am to say to him: “It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.”
And if the devil gives a momentary glimpse of a kingdom full of seemingly precious things and questions “will you worship me for all of this?”
As Jesus, I am to say to him: “Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”
Then if the enemy brings you to a place of being loved by man, and questions “don’t you trust that God will never leave you nor forsake you?”
As Jesus, I am to say to him: “It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.”
Then, the devil will depart for a season but he will return. Therefore we must obey God, stay on our guard, and continually stand firm against temptation.
Lord, be with me and bring this to my remembrance!
