"Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the desert, where for forty days he was tempted by the devil."
The first was a stone. Jesus could have made the stone into bread as Satan suggested, but He chose the Father’s will over physical needs. Next Satan showed Him the kingdoms of the world. He offered Jesus control over this present world if Jesus would do things Satan’s way. Jesus chose the Father’s will instead. Finally, Satan tempted Jesus to defy the law of gravity and prove He was the Messiah. Jesus chose the Father’s plan to subject everything, even Satan, under His feet.
Satan attacks us also, using our physical needs, our desire for control, and our pride to keep us away from God’s will. Jesus defeated Satan by using the Word of God, and we can, too. Scripture cuts through the devil’s lies, leading us right
WHAT A SAVIOR WHO USES EVEN THE DECEITFUL WORDS OF SATAN HIMSELF AS TOOLS TO GLORIFY THE FATHER AND LEAD US TO HIS WILL.
