After God's proclamation of Him as His beloved son, He embarked on a fast and the devil had to tempt him. So like the devil he is, who completely know not how fruitless his efforts are but good at randomization. What I will call ‘try your luck’. The deep things cannot be revealed to him because God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God 1 Corinthians 2:10. Which descended like a dove after the baptism of Jesus, circumstantial circumstance.
However, the devil focuses on performance/actions and spoken words to give direction to his mission. His complete lack of understanding of the original plan of Jesus coming to earth to dethrone him, led him to crucify Jesus. He thought the victory will be his after that, oh! how he thought wrong 1 Corinthians 2:8.
He was completely in the dark about the gift of salvation his action rendered to the people of God. We got free! But how many are walking in that freedom? Is the question with the most unreliable answer because too many are still bound by boundless fear because of unbelief.
Your circumstance which is a reflection of what you believe determines your ability to succeed at your God given assignment even in difficulties. It is written; those that know their God will do exploit. Of Course, the devil knows this and will do everything to level your great height of exploit but cannot dig it out unless he’s given a shovel; your faithlessness. With that, he will keep digging until, there’s nothing to find.
Right now, you got the hoes and the shovels; faith and trust in the most high God to shove out the ‘non’ from the ‘nonsense’ you had to tolerate because of your lack of understanding of how circumstantial the circumstances of the Lord’s crucifixion and resurrection is to the freedom of mankind from the devil’s hold. It is time to shove in sense, grow in wisdom to remain the conqueror you’ve been made.
Simply, remember to study God’s word and stay in touch with Him in prayers. The devil will always keep fighting a loose battle if you do not lose focus on how great your exploits are in life. The thing is; they are all written in the word. But the devil is going to keep you so busy and distracted with all the worries in the world, you may never find time to discover how great the Lord has made you. Be wise! Be smart to leave a mark on earth for others to aim at. Cheers!
