Red Letter Diary

Reflections on the words of Jesus (in red)

“Be gone, Satan…”

Matthew 4:10

“Be gone, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God and Him only shall you serve.'”

Don’t disconnect from the Messiah.  Don’t plug into anything else.  You’ll only get sputtering and jittery.  Don’t unplug yourself from what you already know to be true.  The other fake power sources will leave you hungry.

Since everyone you meet yearns to be connected to the Messiah, everything you do can help them connect, everything you do serves a purpose right down to offering a glass of water or finishing a letter.

This is what God wants you to know and believe:  Everything is supplied.  Everything is supplied by Him, there is no reason to turn anywhere else.

God is not the accuser or the adversary.  Remove these thoughts.  God creates you for good and recreates you for better.  You are fearfully and wonderfully made and remade!

Be gone accusing thoughts!
