Overcome Temptation: Stand On The Word

 

No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man;

but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be

tempted beyond what you are able,

but with the temptation will also make the way of escape,

that you may be able to bear it.

1 Corinthians 10:13 [NKJV]

 

When Jesus was tempted, He did not shift. 

He knew what His assignment was.

He didn’t waver but stood on the Word.

 

Luke 4:1

"Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit,

left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit

into the wilderness, where for forty days he was tempted by the devil."

 

Even if you are filled with the Holy Spirit, the devil will still not back off.

He will still come after you because you are a target.

Jesus was filled with the Holy Spirit and was led into a wilderness.

Jesus fasted and prayed and still the devil came after him.

The devil wants to destroy you because you are a target to his kingdom.

But follow Jesus’ example and stand on the Word.

Fight with the weapons of God, fight with the Word of God.

Resist the devil.

Declare the Word and stand strong for he will flee.

The devil has no power over and once you stand on the Word,

You are declaring the authority Jesus died to give you.

Stand on the Word, submit to God and the devil will flee.

 

Therefore submit to God.

Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”

James 4:7 [NKJV]
