Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 06/11/17

This week’s scripture is from Matthew:

“And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.” (Matt. 6:13 NET)

A time of trial and testing is never pleasant, but sometimes the Lord uses such times to build us up spiritually. Such times force us to flex our spiritual muscles and thereby strengthen us to stand against temptations, against the wiles of the enemy of our soul, the accuser who continually delights to point out our failures and number our sins against us before the Lord. But there is One who sits at the right hand of the Father continually making intercession for us, who can deliver us from the evil one, for He is the One who was without sin, who sacrificed Himself that we might be able to stand and resist evil and temptation in His name and by the power of His blood. Let us not fail to call on Him in times of trial and temptation.

May the Lord bless you and deliver you from evil.
