Philippians 3:17 “Brethren, join in following my example, and note those who so walk, as you have us for a pattern.” (NKJV)
Philippians 3:17 “Stick with me, friends. Keep track of those you see running this same course, headed for this same goal.”(MSG)
Hebrews 6:12 “That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.”
…From yesterday…
God has seen people enjoy blessings and seen many great failures. He has not just seen them; He can also give a detailed account of how it happened.
The devil although powerless has also been around for quite some time; he has also seen great failures and successes. If nothing at all, he was the first failure and he knows what it took to fail. If he can sell the idea to you the way he sold it to Eve, you can be sure to end up a failure like him.
All he did was to get Eve to disobey a direct order or instruction from God, and mankind fell flat on his back. This is why you must always trust the Holy Spirit to guide every decision of yours.
Let the Bible, our instruction manual, become your close companion and you will sure defeat the devil 100/100. Jesus knew what is written and he got the upper hand against the devil.
Matthew 4:6 “And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in [their] hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.”
Matthew 4:7 “Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.”
One major lesson I learnt from the encounter (Study Matthew 4:3-11) between Jesus and the devil is that it is not only believers that know and study the bible! The devil didn’t come to Jesus quoting from a demonic book somewhere; all his references were from the bible!
