The Devil Looks For An Opportune Time

Temptations never end, they keep coming around again and again like a scratch on a record. If you were ever tempted in anything, you will be tempted again with that same temptation, when you least expect it.

When Jesus was in the wilderness, during his time of temptation, the Bible says in Luke 4:13, “And when the devil had finished every temptation, he departed from Him until an opportune time.” The devil found other opportune times to tempt Jesus throughout His entire ministry, even up to His last breath on the cross.

Jesus shows us how to deal with temptation, He says in Matthew 26:41, “Keep watching and praying, that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” We need to be watchful like the guard on the wall searching around looking for the Devils attacks.

Father, help us to keep our eyes open and watchful for the schemes of the devil, that we might not fall into temptation. Thank you Jesus, for showing us how to deal with it. In your name we pray, amen.
