Behind every victory is our next battle; but, remember this, no matter how big your giants (your tests, your temptations);’ the battle is not yours, but God’s’. (2 Chronicles 20:15b). In Luke, we know the story of how Jesus, being full of the Holy Spirit was led by the Spirit into the wilderness for forty days, being tempted by the devil. He never gave in to Satan, He held firm to the Word of God (His sword) and defeated the enemy. Hebrews 4:15 reminds us that we have One who “was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin”. We must be willing to be led by the Holy Spirit. Satan knows how to tempt us not only through our weaknesses but also through our strengths. Hold firm to your faith. Because of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit who dwells within us, and our knowledge of and obedience to scripture (the Word of God), we can overcome.
V.L.S.-“Through all of my faults, my failures, and my imperfections; God will cover me afresh.”
