As our world continues to enter into a state of concerning evil. It becomes apparent those walking in the light of Yeshua must go through this period of evil and temptations using 100% dependence on faith and trust.
When I observe this youngster looking upward I see hope, peace, and anticipation of both being in her life.
It is easy to see these features in our youth as they have not taken in the world’s animosity, bitterness, vitriol, and most of all not yet faced the full force of a corrupt and adversarial world.
When we receive the Holy Spirit and his discernment our eyes are opened and it becomes crystal clear, what we have been lifted from and into, through salvation.
How, when we are so deeply entrenched in what is considered a lifestyle, we cannot see past the comforts of the world who shield and blind us to the truth. I believe it is revealed, when we look at Matthew 4:9] And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.
“OH,” wait that was Yeshua being tempted, and he rebuked Satan and continued to walk in His Father’s ways. My point Yeshua could see the hook in Satan’s offer, we will learn how those in the world do not have the discernment to recognize what price is connected to this offer and will be deceived and connected.
Here is where it becomes important to recognize there is only one way to understand Yeshua’s actions. It is expressed in this scripture.
1 Corinthians 2:14 KJV
But the natural man receiveth, not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
That explains how the worldly become trapped in the mind set of succeeding.
People state I have to go with the flow in order to live in this world putting a roof over my head food on my table, paying my bills. In this statement it becomes clear there is no understanding of the temptation being offered.
Here is what is being set aside. Matthew 6:33 KJV
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Then we see what has been overlooked and set aside. Matthew 6:31-32 KJV
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?  (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
Food and raiment God has promised, therefore we may expect them. Take no thought for the morrow, for the time to come. Be not anxious for the future, how you shall live next year, or when you are old, or what you shall leave behind you.
As we must not boast of tomorrow, so we must not care for tomorrow or the events of it. God has given us life, and has given us the body. And what can he not do for us, who did that?
If we take care about our souls and for eternity, which are more than the body and its life, we may leave it to God to provide for us food and raiment, which are less.
Thoughtfulness for our souls is the best cure of thoughtfulness for the world. Seek first the kingdom of God, and make religion your business: say not that this is the way to starve; no, it is the way to be well provided for, even in this world.
The conclusion of the whole matter is, that it is the will and command of the Lord Jesus, that by daily prayers we may get the strength to bear us up under our daily troubles, and to arm us against the temptations that attend them, and then let none of these things move us.
Remember, these messages are given by a humble servant obedient unto our Lord Yeshua as a Watchman. This I pray for all. ”Our Heavenly Father brings us to the river which bringeth forth fruit so we may partake of its sustenance and be filled spiritually with nurturing wisdom, and humble dedication in service to Yeshua. “Blessings to All.” As you go forward in peace, knowledge, and strength.
