Before Jesus began His ministry, He spent time in the wilderness alone, praying and fasting. At the end of His forty day fast, He was hungry. It was the perfect time for the devil to come in and throw temptation His way. This is tormenting! This is what the enemy does to us! He comes when we are weak. At every turn, Satan came after Jesus with the things he knew about Him. What did He do? He fought him with scripture and truth! After He did this a few times, he left him. So, there it is! The key to winning the fight! Don’t waste your time crying over your situation if you haven’t pulled out the truth/scripture and used it in your defense. What are you dealing with today that you haven’t trusted the LORD to handle for you? What scripture have you left closed up in that Bible sitting on the shelf that you could be using in your fight? Take your weapon out of its sheath and brandish it!
Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and were ministering to him. Matthew 4:11
