Today is Friday, July 29, 2022, and our bible verse of the day will be taken from the book of 1 Peter 5:8.
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.1 Peter 5:8.
The devil uses temptation to devour us, and for that reason, we must learn how to overcome temptations.
And how can we overcome temptations?
The simplest way to overcome temptations is earning from the experience of the temptations of our Lord Jesus as recorded in the book of Mathew 4:1-11.
Now the three things the devil tempted Jesus with were:
- Seeking worldly pleasure is symbolized by bread.
- Putting God to test because knowing that someone can die from jumping off a high cliff, one has to avoid it.
- Worshipping the devil in exchange for worldly possession.
To understand how to overcome the devil as we can learn from this Jesus example, we must realize that the devil used biblical references each time he attempted to tempt our LORD.
And Jesus in turn also used biblical references to overcome him.
And for this reason, if one must overcome the devil, then one has to be well vested in the word of God.
Today we are going to pray that God should teach us his word so we can use it to overcome the devil.
Heavenly Father, we pray you to teach us your word every time so we can use I to overcome Satan and all his wiles.
We make our prayers through Christ our Lord. Amen.
