October 11, 2020 Spirit Meat Devotional :- UNDERSTANDING THE CLUES THAT DESTINY BRINGS FOR DANIELS (3) – Daniel 1:8; 1 Corinthians 10:13
The third clue that we will be considering today is temptation. The devil will show up with different temptations while Daniels are going through training and walking the road to the top. The sense of value that you have for your future is a factor of your defence mechanism because some of the temptations will be so juicy and enticing that the only thing weightier than that temptation is where you are going.
Don’t allow a temporary solution that the devil is offering you at the moment to distract you from what God has for you in the nearest future. Don’t look for what God is not giving you. Whatever the devil is bringing is lesser than what is waiting for you in your place of destiny. If you fall for the temptation of the devil, it will mortgage your future. The offer of the devil will reduce you and cause you to stumble on the road of destiny.
Focusing on your future and what God has set for you is the only antidote to the offer of the devil. A vision of your future is the only thing that will be stronger than what the devil is offering. It will take a lot of endurance to focus on what God has set ahead of you without being distracted by the devil (Hebrews 12:2-3). If you don’t master how to endure hardness, you may go through training, but there is a tendency to fall for the offer of the devil. God will not allow you to be tempted above what you can bear.
PRAYER: Holy Spirit, help me to be sensitive to every deceptive demonic offer. I will not fall victim of what the devil is bringing.
