Day #774

February 13, 2016

The scripture for Sunday is about Jesus’ temptation in the wilderness according to the Gospel of Luke, specifically Luke 4:9-13. Michelle Phillips has this to say in the “think” portion of the d365 devotion:
Reading today’s verses, I am reminded that faith is about just trusting that God is there. It’s hard. It’s hard to believe in something you can’t see. But that is what faith is all about. Faith is about assurance, a sense of security and peace that comes from knowing Christ.
Certainly Jesus was tempted to doubt God’s presence, and caring for him, while he was in the desert. Isn’t that probably the biggest lie the devil uses, though, that God doesn’t exist? Followed closely by the lie that God doesn’t love us or that we aren’t somehow worthy of God’s love?

Prayers that the faith God gives us reminds us - and gives us the power - to resist the temptation to listen to the devil's lies!
