“He will give His angels orders concerning you, and they will support you with their hands so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

Jesus told him, “It is also written: Do not test the Lord your God.

Again, the Devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. And he said to Him, “I will give You all these things if You will fall down and worship me.”

Then Jesus told him, “Go away, Satan! For it is written:

“Worship the Lord your God, and serve only Him.

Then the Devil left Him, and immediately angels came and began to serve Him. (Matthew 4:6-11)

How often do you use God’s Word? For what purpose?

Today’s Challenge: We can take God’s words out of context, add a little or take a little away, and make it serve our purposes instead of His. Spend time in His Word today. In addition to today’s reading, open your Bible to one of your favorite verses. Read the entire chapter, the preceding chapter, and the following chapter. Put it in context. Let God challenge your assumptions.
