When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune time.Luke 4:13
Jesus fought the devil’s temptations in Luke chapter four with scripture. His command of scripture gave him courage, strength and the ability to stand his spiritual ground when confronted with temptation.
Satan tried to use scripture against Jesus, but Jesus understood the truth of scripture and the devil’s twisting of it and responded with the truth of God’s word.
This example of Jesus victory over temptation shows us that we too can be victorious when tempted. We can and will be victorious if we spend time in the scriptures, learning their truth, and applying it to our lives. We will then be able to stand our spiritual ground when confronted with whatever temptation the devils sends our way.
