In the wilderness,Christ was tempted
Those forty days, He prayed and fasted;
Getting ready to start ministry,
He was ambushed by the enemy.
The Son of God yet Son of man
Faced the assaults of satan
Tempted by satan in many ways
Hear what the enemy said:
"You're hungry and need to be fed
So turn these stones to bread;
If you are the Son of God, then
Selfishly display your power to men."
"Acknowledge me and bow down,
And i'll give you earth's most beautiful towns,"
Tempting Christ to lust and pride
But victoriously Christ did stride.
Since God's Son was not exempted
We,as God's children,will also be tempted
By God's Word, Christ overcame
And we can do just the same.
Temptation can come any day
So we must watch and pray
And he can use man or woman
To carry out his deadly plan.
But when he comes as he would
We must stand strong as we should
Putting on the whole armor of God,
Put satan to flight by God's Word!
Put on the whole armour of God,that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.Ephesians 6 vs 11(KJV)
