Next opportunity...

Mark 1: 12 - 13, Matthew 4: 1- 11, Luke 4: 1 - 15, John 1:19 - 2:35


We ALL face it!

These words hit me hard this morning...When the devil had finished tempting Jesus, he left him until the next opportunity came.

He left until...

We are talking about Jesus here and that the devil never quit trying to tempt Jesus or perhaps he didn't see another opportunity.  I guess what struck me was the words "until the next opportunity came."  After all, we are all human.  So, we give the devil plenty of opportunity.  How do we handle the opportunity times for the devil?  Do we allow him in or slam the door?  Probably both at times...

I guess the thought I wanted to share is stay strong!  Keep your eyes on the Lord knowing the devil is always crouching like a lion waiting on the next opportunity to leap against us!  The devil is very real and don't believe otherwise!

Leave you with this thought this morning...God wins and so do all that believe Jesus came and died on the cross for our sins!  So, believe and keep your eyes on Jesus knowing God beats the devil!

Sweet blessings,
