How Did Jesus Defeat Satan's Temptations?
departed from him until an opportune time." Satan would come back with force when Jesus was at His weakest point, in the Garden Of Gethsemane on the night He was betrayed. Satan is a restless and deadly enemy, leaving us alone only to come again at "an opportune time." If we are to resist him, we need the power of the Holy Spirit, the truth of God's word and the ready intercession of our Great High Priest.
Prayer Based on Psalm 106:
Yesterday, I gave you my prayer based on Psalm 106. Today, here is the prayer from Pray All the Psalms:
We praise you, O Lord.
We give thanks to you Lord, for you are good;
your love endures forever.
Who can proclaim your mighty acts, O Lord
or fully declare your praise?
Blessed are they who maintain justice,
who constantly do what is right.
Remember us, O Lord,
when you show favour to your people,
come to our aid when you save us,
that we may enjoy the prosperity of your chosen
that we may share in the joy of your nation
and join your inheritance in giving praise.
For you qualified us to share in the inheritance of
in the kingdom of light.
For you rescued us from the dominion of darkness
and brought us into the kingdom of your Son,
whom you love.
In him we have redemption,
the forgiveness of sins.
Yet we have sinned, even as our fathers did;
we have done wrong and acted wickedly.
We are no different from ancient Israel,
we, the Church, have been rebellious too.
When Israel's fathers were in Egypt,
they gave no thought to your miracles;
they did not remember your many kindnesses,
and they rebelled by the sea, the Red Sea.
Yet you saved them for your name’s sake,
just as you saved us,
to make your mighty power known.
You rebuked the Red Sea, and it dried up;
you led them through the depths as through a desert.
You saved them from the hand of the foe;
from the hand of the enemy you redeemed them.
The waters covered their adversaries;
not one of them survived.
Then they believed you promises
and sang your praise.
