"I will give you the glory of these kingdoms and authority over them," the devil said, "because they are mine to give to anyone I please. I will give it all to you if you will worship me." Jesus replied, "The Scriptures say, 'You must worship the LORD your God and serve only him.'" Luke 4:6-8 NLT

At the moment of His trial in the wilderness, Jesus was ready to answer Satan with the scriptures that had become a vital part of His life. Even with the temptation to avoid His looming death and humble ministry, Jesus remained grounded in the truth about God rather than giving into the promises of Satan.

The slow work of transformation and holiness may be difficult to observe on a day-to-day basis. There may not be too many dramatic moments of deliverance or manifestations of God’s presence. However, attention to the teachings of scripture and the truth about God will have a payoff one day. It may not happen right away, but it will certainly happen when an unexpected trial or temptation arises. The time you spend before God will help you stand when trouble comes.

How can you make space this week to grow in your reliance on God’s strength and wisdom?

Prayer: Jesus, You overcome Satan with the truth of Your Word. Help me see the power and beauty of Your words so that I can rely on You in times of trial.
