Where do you feel empty? Are you hungry for attention, craving success, longing for intimacy? Be aware of your weaknesses. Bring them to God before Satan brings them to you! Satan will tell you, as he did when tempting Jesus, to turn stones into bread. In other words, to take matters into your own hands; leave God out of it. If Satan convinces us to trust our works over God’s Word, he has us dangling from a broken limb!
Do what Jesus did. In Satan’s temptation of Jesus, three times Jesus repeated, “It is written…” Jesus overcame temptation, not with special voices or supernatural signs, but by remembering and quoting Scripture. Let God’s word silence Satan’s lies and see what happens. (Matthew 4)
