I like the way you met the devil when you were in the wilderness.
The devil is the tempter.
His job is tempting people.
He can tempt us all,
I like the way you said to him,
“Away from me, Satan!
For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’”*
I really like this.
Please lead me not into temptation.**
If I meet the tempter,
please help me know that I’m meeting him
and that you’re always in me.
I’ll keep enjoying the table you prepare before me in the presence of the tempter.***
Thank you, Jesus.
* Matthew 4:10
** The Lord’s Prayer – Matthew 6:13 – And lead us not into temptation.
*** Psalm 23:5 – You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
