DAILY READINGS: Ezra 8:1-36; Daniel 9:1-27; Revelation 4:1-11

Then was Jesus led up of the spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. Matthew 4:1-2

When the forty days of testing were coming to a close and our Lord was hungry and exhausted, Satan came for a final strike. Satan knows when and how to attack us. He is a fearsome enemy. How did our Lord respond to these attacks? He stood firm on the Scriptures and constantly said, “It is written” (v. 4, 7, 10). If we rest on the Word, we will resist the Devil. —G. Frear

Hallelujah, Christ the Conqueror,
Every day we’re one with Him,
Walking in Him constantly,
Living Christ our victory.—Author Unknown
