MESSAGE: The story was told of an orphan who lost his parents when he was just eight years old. He was the only surviving son of the family. His parents were very wealthy with great assets. Shortly before their death, they willed everything to him without his knowledge. Life became so difficult for him thereafter until he found the will. The discovery opened a new chapter in his life.
Christ came to fulfil the mandate of His heavenly Father to reconcile the world, blinded by Satan and sin, unto God. Our text figures out different temptations from Satan to divert Christ’s attention from focusing on what was written concerning Him. He faced three specific temptations after forty days of fasting in the wilderness. Satan tried Him using legitimate needs like food, spiritual gifting and worship of other gods apart from the almighty God. In it all, Christ focused on His original mission because He knew what was written concerning Him.
The world is plagued with challenges of life. The only panacea for a believer is to key into the unfailing promises of God written concerning him. Christ, our perfect Example, overcame the temptations that confronted Him because of His assurance on what was written concerning Him. To make it to the end, every believer must constantly study and meditate on the word of God.
There is great value in becoming what God has written concerning us. The distress of life – fear of death, temptations and snares of the wicked – become easier under the shelter of the Lord. There is a promise in the Bible that fits exactly into a situation. The key that opens the door to your victory over temptations and trials is provided in the word of God.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Victory is certain for those who rest on the word of God.
THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Genesis 4-6
