Then was Jesus led up of the spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
Life of bliss is what God has given to everyone only if we can surmount the challenges that comes with it. Jesus was not spared of those challenges. Despite the fact that He was observing forty days of self denial, He had a triumphant encounter with the devil. If Jesus could, then you too can. Stop asking why you whenever you are being tempted of the devil.
Jesus’ mission was so important to Him that He decided not to mess up with the devil. You can imagine the saviour of mankind being subjected to like passion like you and I. In verses 3,6 and 8 of matthew 4, Jesus was offered bribe, He was pushed to the wall, He was lied to with scripture subtly quoted by the devil. What situation are you confronted with, that you think it is too much to bear? Remember, you can not be spared because Jesus was not spared.
The good news is in John 16:33, where it is written that we are going to face tribulations in the world, but we need not to be troubled because Christ has overcome the world. You are an overcomer by acceptance of Jesus. Nothing can be as sweet as victory over challenges. Jesus won the devil hands down that you might keep winning too. Go ahead and keep winning in Jesus name.
