Bible Verse for Today
“For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted.” (Hebrews 2:18)
Even Jesus Christ was tempted in different ways and yet he overcame in all, this made him perfect without blemish.
You shouldn’t be ignorant of what to do when temptations come. If you don’t know what to do, you will continually fall when tempted. Did Jesus does when he was tempted, or how did he respond to temptation? When we follow the words of Jesus and look into how he overcame Satan, we will see that we can also overcome any kind of temptation.
Jesus overcame using the Word. The word of God can do many things, Jesus used this word and finally rebuked Satan.
There are some things that will come and will never look like temptation, Jesus was able to discern temptation and he fought it. We must have the spirit of discernment so we don’t fall into temptation. After discerning, we must then use the word of God. The word of God is powerful. Satan himself knows the word, he used it when tempting Jesus but Jesus knew more. After you have used the word of God, the next is to rebuke Satan and he will surely flee from you. James 4:7 “Submit therefore to God Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”
Know that Satan won’t come to you physically himself to tempt you. He will come as a thought or use situations around. Therefore, you must be careful and stand firm in the word of God.
