After His baptism, Jesus spent time alone with God in the wilderness. For forty days, He ate no food. He grew very, very hungry. "Jesus," called a voice, "if You are really God's Son, why don't You turn these stones into bread so that You can eat?"
Jesus recognized Satan's voice, and although He was hungry, He said, "It is written, 'Man does not live by eating only bread, but by every word that comes from God's mouth.'"
Then Satan showed Jesus the peak of the temple and said, "If You are really God's Son, You could jump from here and Scripture says angels would catch You."
"It also says, 'Do not tempt God,"' answered Jesus.
So Satan took Jesus to the top of a tall mountain and said, "Look down there. See all that lies below You, every kingdom, every single thing on the earth. Bow down and worship me, and I will give it all to you."
"Get away from me, Satan!" commanded Jesus. "It is written, 'Worship God alone, and serve only Him.'"
At that, Satan fled, and angels came down and cared for Jesus.
People have been tempted since the time of Adam and Eve. Even Jesus was tempted. He, however, fought the devil's offers and won. Satan's lie is that he is almighty and we can't overcome his destructive ways. At times we don't recognize that our thoughts or action or being prompted by Satan.
Some of the ways the devil lures us into his trap are over-importance of material things, and following false teaching and gods. Jesus knows when we are faced with a tempting situation. And he knows that we can't fight our battle with sin all alone, so he is with us. We can rely on the Bible to know what is true.
