Scripture: Matthew 4: 10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: `Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’ ”
Observation: So often my mind wanders and Satan comes in to tempt me or my thoughts give way to sin. When I catch myself I say these same words that Jesus said, “away from me Satan.” If I sin or don’t do what God wants me to do I’m not worshipping God.
Application: I need to be aware of the devil’s schemes and catch myself instantly when I stray from the path God wants me on. As soon as my focus strays toward sin I need to call out, “away from me Satan for it is written worship the Lord your God and serve Him only.”
Prayer: My Lord make me aware of the enemy’s traps and keep my mind and heart on you. May my life serve you and worship you.
