It’s what I need!
As the mountain of craziness in this world around me grows, I need to find a way to stay grounded on what is good and right and helpful. Jesus shines his light on my path as I read the account of his discussion with Satan in the dessert.
Satan is confronting Jesus after he has been fasting for 40 days. My first thought was that the human part of Jesus were probably in a weakened state after all this time. After thinking about it, he has been in constant communication with his Father for 40 days straight so physically he may have been weakened, but spiritually he was strong and well fed.
Satan tried three times in three different ways to try to tempt Jesus to show off his power and rule the world like an earthly King. Instead of giving in, Jesus quoted scripture – God’s Word – back to Satan.
God’s Word is the truth and it stood up to all of Satan’s lies over 2000 years ago. Just like it stands up against all of the lies Satan is spewing across our culture today.
Reading, studying and applying God’s Word to my life is the only way I’m going to be able to navigate through all the lies, fake news, wrong thinking, lack of integrity, manipulation and secret agendas that are swirling around me today.
This same crud is swirling around you.
Are you looking for something solid to hang on to through this storm? God and his Word to you is the answer.
Thank you for your Truth, Abba Father.
