For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
Spirituality does not stop temptations
Jesus went through many temptations but the ones recorded in the bible which can be found in Luke chapter 4 and Matthew chapter 4.
The striking thing is that the temptations recorded happened when Jesus had fasted and prayed 40 days and 40 nights. So your supposed or imagined best times of spirituality, doesn’t stop you from going through temptations. In fact when you are at your best spiritual condition, that is when you should expect the biggest and strongest tempations.
Naturally when people are fasting, they are humbled. There are some things that you do normally but when you are fasting somehow you put those things behind. For instance if you are a secret fornicator in church, a liar or cheat somehow when fasting is declared you try to make sure not to cross God in this angle. So after the fast you are likely to resume to your habits.
And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.
He who is down needs fear no fall
When you are already on the ground, the devil doesn’t have time for you because he has finished you already. But when he realizes that you have become stronger and you are a threat to his kingdom, he will try to bring you down. If you do not mean anything, the devil will not target you.
One of the truths that God is with you is the temptations and trials you go through.
There is always a devil around to destroy you. Sometimes you meet people with glorious destinies but there are demons that have taken hold of their lives that is why you must preach to people to win their souls for God.
Be Saved Today
If you are reading this except and you have not received Jesus as your savior, kindly say this short prayer:
Dear Lord Jesus,
I am a sinner and cannot save myself.
I believe that you died for my sins and rose again.
Cleanse me with your blood and become the Lord over my life.
Thank you for your forgiveness, Amen
