The Will, The Word and The Worship-Part 3

The third area in which the enemy will attempt to come against us is in the worship of God, seen through our obedience to God.  The fact is after the Devil makes attempts to tempt Jesus through the will of God and the word of God, his final temptation comes through the worship of God as seen in (Matt 4:1-11).  Satan says to Jesus “All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me” (Matt 4:9). Thus, Jesus didn’t fall for the lies and deception of the enemy.  Jesus knew that Satan could give him nothing because the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.  With that understanding, Jesus already knew that all that was on the earth already belonged to him because He is the son of God.  And we too must understand that we don’t have to fall down and worship the Devil to receive provision or even the desires of our heart.  We just need to commit our ways to the Lord and trust him to provide.  Thus, the Devil doesn’t care who or what we worship, just as long as it’s not The Father, The Son or The Holy Spirit.  Anything else is fair game because anything or anyone else you worship becomes an idol, thus becoming the worship of Satan.  One of the main goals of Satan is to get the Christian to worship him.  Furthermore, worshipping God is not only what we do on Sunday morning; in fact, true worship is exemplified in how we live our life from one Sunday to the next. Therefore, saints of God – be on guard in these three areas of your life because every temptation the enemy throws at us will challenge one or more of these areas.  He will watch us to learn where we are weak and will tempt us in any area we leave unguarded.
