Temptation is always with us but so are the angels!

The Spirit then compelled Jesus to go into the wilderness, 13 where he was tempted by Satan for forty days. He was out among the wild animals, and angels took care of him. Mark 1:12-13, NLT

What follows victories or seasons of vision? Temptation of course. The seasoned Christian knows they are no better than anyone else and must be on guard for what lies around the corner of success and popularity. There is purpose in temptations and trials, two purposes actually. One is to destroy you and the other is to strengthen and reward you. Yes, your Father in heaven desires your discipline and faith; your enemy desires your destruction. This is the ongoing struggle while on this earth.

Be aware young believer that one is always living in three constant states: going into trial, in trial, or coming out of trial. The life of the Christian is not about pursuing safety or behind castle walls. She is a journeyer and will encounter many different scenes and characters, not to mention coming to know oneself and even better, coming to know the Lord.

The text tells us that angels exist and they played the role of deacons during Jesus' time in the desert. Do you believe in angels? They are ministering spirits serving the Lord in various ways. Have you asked for their assistance in your life? Why not? Use your imagination to see how the Lord might work. Be aware my friend that life is an exciting journey of seasons and grace is needed for your travels. Be quick in your mind always speaking and listening to the Spirit. Be aware and ask for the assistance of Heaven's deacons, the angels of God.
