The Problem, The Test, And Its Blessing

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Matthew 4:1 says that the Spirit led Messiah into the wilderness to be tested of the devil. Strange. The Spirit led Messiah to the devil? The devil is the voice of evil. Messiah is going to be confronted with evil: evil motives, twisting of scripture, the desire to stop His ministry, and for His destruction. It was a test; the Spirit led to it because, in the end, Messiah would come out of it approved and prepared for ministry.

In your life, you may have been hit by the enemy, by bad things, evil things, people, circumstances, words, and events in your life, but God is and will use these things for your good. In fact, He will even use it to grow you and prepare you for the ministry and the calling that He placed you here for. When you go through that trial, that test, remember it’s not an accident. So don’t get discouraged, but pass your test. It is all being used for your good. God is so awesome that the devil’s worst will be used for God’s best to prepare you for your calling and ministry.

Do not fix your love upon your money bags!

Charles Spurgeonby Charles Spurgeon

“Treasury of David”

“If riches increase, do not set your heart upon them!” Psalm 62:10

Do not fix your love upon your money bags! To bow your immortal spirit to the constant contemplation of fading possessions, is extreme folly.

Shall those who call the Lord their glory–glory in yellow earth? Shall the image of Caesar on coins, deprive them of communion with Him who is the image of the invisible God? As we must not rest in men, so neither must we repose in money.

Gain and fame are only so much foam of the sea! All the wealth and honor which the whole world can afford, would be too slender a thread to bear up the happiness of an immortal soul. Our misery is that we thirst so little for heavenly realities–and so much for the mocking trifles of time and sense.

“For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?” Mark 8:36-37
