Treasures of the Word – November 12

Treasures of the Word Devo Banner

Nov. 12

WRITING:

“God, my God is You; at dawn I will look for you; my soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, in a dry and arid land where there is no water ” (Psalm 63: 1).

BIBLICAL TREASURE:

The Devil tempted Jesus to turn stones into bread. I have been to Palestine and have seen stones that amazingly look like small bread rolls. In my mind I can see the devil looking at the ground knowing that Jesus had been fasting for 40 days and he tempts him: “Well, look here. Just turn this into bread! ” Now, there is nothing wrong with eating bread. In fact, Jesus taught us to pray for our daily bread. However, Jesus was led into the desert to fast, pray, and seek God’s face. The devil tried to put bread above the will of God, saying: “Pamper your flesh!” However, what he was really saying was: “Commit spiritual suicide.” Jesus refused. Jesus conquered the flesh and you can too.

ACTION POINT:

Did you know that every minute that you entertain negative thoughts that go against what God has commanded you are kneeling before Satan? It is right. The next time you start thinking about something God disapproves of, look at the second hand on your watch, it’s time you’ll never get back, so why keep throwing it away?
