Matthew 6:13b says, “but deliver us from the evil one.”
Jesus alone is the only Deliverer from evil! Write this down on your heart. He is the Way, the Truth and the Life! He’s the Conqueror King! He’s the Resurrection and the Life, and there is no evil in Him!
Though temptation creeps in and Satan entices us to sin, God, our Father, promises a way of escape. He provides a means of rescue through his Son, Jesus.
So today, when things go right or wrong, when you think you can make it on your own, or even if you can no longer make it at all, know this. He will deliver you from whatever temptation comes your way. As James 4:7 reminds us, “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
And there you go!
