Lent Week 2 Day 8

Psalm 70:1,

Hasten, O God, to save me;
    come quickly, Lord, to help me.

 This scripture indicates a cry for help that is needed right away. We need to cry out to God when we are in tempting situations or are frustrated by something. When we are faced with difficulties God is there to help us if we just take the time to ask. I ask God now to please help me remember I don’t have to do life alone. He is there waiting to help me. I don’t have to try to be independent and I should cry out to Him when I am in trouble and He will deliver me.

Day 8 Living on His Bread
The scripture reading for today is about Jesus being tempted in the desert. He resisted every temptation with scripture.
Ann says: Father, He was hungry and He ate of the bread of Your Words. Let us too.
He was lured with the glitter of this world and He worshiped You and You alone. Let us too.
He was dared with scripture but He knew all of scripture. Let us too.
He was tempted and He conquered. Let us too.
Because today, please keep us in Him.
When we are being tempted remember Jesus went through it also and conquered it with scripture. Knowing God’s Word is a powerful tool in overcoming the evil temptations we face. Ask God for help and turn to the Bible and see what He has to say for that moment, in that moment. He is our very present help.

Day 1- Get your thinking straight and be in God’s presence

Day 2- Be reading the Bible and trust God

Day 3- Reverence, worship and praise God and Jesus for who God is and what Jesus has done.

Day 4- Be faithful to Him and He will be faithful to fill you. Look to Jesus with gratitude and prayer.

Day 5- Notice the miserable and suffering, ask God to reveal them so I can tell them the Good News that there is hope and there is a Savior, His name is Jesus!

Day 6- Stay close to God with a repented heart. He will bring life out of the mundane if I trust Him to do it.

Day 7- Relationship means dependence. Depend on your relationship with Jesus to do God’s will and bring Him joy and joy to yourself.

Day 8- Don’t hesitate to ask God for help out of all temptations, trials, distresses and troubles. Keep God on your mind, always.
