Weekly Dose of Scripture 3/6/22

Hey guys! I am excited to share this week’s Scripture, because it’s is a passage in the Bible that I am always turning to for encouragement. The last week has been a little difficult for me, and maybe it has for some of you as well in regards to spiritual attacks. If that is the case, then I hope this encourages you, too!

Then the devil took him up to a very high mountain and he showed him all the kingdoms of the world in their magnificence and he said to him, “All these I shall give to you if you will prostrate yourself and worship me.” At this, Jesus said to him, “Get away Satan! It is written: The Lord, your God, shall you worship and him alone shall you serve.” Then the devil left him, and behold angels came and ministered to him. – Matthew 4:8-11

I highlighted this verse, but really I want to talk about the entire passage. In our lives we will face temptations and spiritual attacks from the devil. We are shown that Jesus was not an exception. The devil even had the guts to tempt the Son of God! Not once, but three times in a row! In this passage, Jesus shows us exactly how we are to fend off attacks from the devil. We are to use the Sword of Truth, the Word of God, to fight off his attacks. The devil might not flee the first time, or the second time. But if we are perseverant, and use the Armor of God, he will flee from us.

I hope this encourages you to fight off the attacks of the devil! He is persistent, but God is on our side! There is a spiritual battle going on for each of our lives that we can’t see, but God is fighting for us and He will not leave us to fend for ourselves!

God bless y’all, and have a wonderful week!

  1. In regards to temptation, it’s always good to remember I Corinthians 10:13

    13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

    The three temptations of Christ, which He avoided, are the same temptations all humans face: the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life . ( I John 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.) He avoided those temptations. He was tempted as we are – and conquered.
