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.

By Sending The Messiah

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

In Romans 8, Paul writes this: “For what the law could not do…God did by sending His own Son… in order that the requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us…

In this is a secret. The law testified of a righteousness, a requirement, a lack, a debt, and an absence it couldn’t fulfill. But what fulfilled it? The sending forth of the presence of God. What the law could not do…God did by sending His Son. The answer never comes by dwelling on the problem or from what isn’t there or from what isn’t right. The answer comes by the presence of God coming into the problem. The answer to hate is not to hate back, but to love with the presence of God. The answer to what is wrong and evil is not to react to what is evil, but to all the more react with good. And the answer to sin isn’t to dwell on sin, but to fill yourself up with God. For what the law could not do… God, and only God, did and still does.

Today’s Mission

Today, solve the problems around you, or within you, not by dwelling on them, but by filling up with the presence of God.
