Matthew 4:11 (NIV)
Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.
Tests and temptations are quite inevitable and part of the christian’s life. The difference is the source. God tests us so we can get elevated or promoted to the next level but the devil tempts us so we can lose the presence and glory of God. It is in the believers’ interest to be mindful and especially know the difference between the two. Regardless, it is crucial we overcome the temptations and pass the tests. Heaven rejoices and God is leveraged into coming to our aid and with a crown. Jesus knows this process too well and he’s with you through this.
Thank you Lord for the grace to overcome all because you already overcame them. Send the hosts of heaven to my aid when I need them. In Jesus’ Name.
