When you are at your weakest

Your weakest point is when you are most vulnerable. The enemy knows this. Look at Matthew 4:2-4. We see here that Jesus was hungry and the enemy came to him telling him to turn stones into bread so that he could satisfy His hunger. The enemy is just like that. He has to get at you when you are down . . . at your weakest point. That is why those x-rated adult stores stay open 24 hours. You may do well on Sunday while you are at church and maybe during the week while you are at work . . . but say at 2 am when you have had a disagreement with your spouse, the enemy will say you should go to the dirty book and movie store . . . and guess what, IT WILL BE OPEN! That is not by chance. It is a snare of the enemy designed to destroy you.

To let you know how big of a deal this is, if you travel on I75 you will see advertisements for an adult cafe that is open 24 hours, there are so many signs that you can’t help but see them . . . then they say couples are welcome and that they have showers. Couples are welcome? So, if your wife is sitting there next to you in the car and can go in with you, does it make it ok? That is a way to get you into the place, and showers? In a place where there is nakedness and sexual immorality?  And it is all available all the time . . . so that it will be open when you are at your weakest point.

Let’s go back to the Word here in Matthew 4. What did Jesus do when satan came? He took satan to the Word and that is exactly what you will have to do. You have to realize that God will not allow you to be tempted above that you can bear (I Corinthians 10:13).  So God knew that Jesus had the ability to withstand the temptations of the devil, it was just up to Jesus to do that. Yes, Jesus had free will. He chose to be obedient unto death (Philippians 2:8). So, is it a problem to be weak in and of yourself? No, because when you are weak, He is strong (2 Corinthians 12:10). When weakness comes you have a choice – you can choose the counterfeit of the devil or you can choose deliverance through the Word of God.
