Jesus fasted, meditated and prayed for 40 days and 40 nights in the wilderness the scriptures say, and endured many temptations from the devil; and so, with great AWARENESS and faith he did away with all ignorance and wickedness, with all selfishness and blasphemy. Like this, as the devil would try and force his power over Jesus’s thoughts, feelings, and deeds, he was rejected and immediately vanished from his sight. How did Jesus do this…?? And better yet, what example did he leave in this…??
AUTHORITY. He had authority the devil never had, that is the great power of speech, thought, and feel; however, the devil tempted him, he tempts you, because the devil seeks the weakness in man and woman, he hopes that you ignore the authority you have within you. The devil hoped Jesus had forgotten his authority through his many hardships, but Jesus never did; and thus, you must seek his example, find YOUR own authority. The only difference between Jesus’s authority and yours is AWARENESS, self-awareness: Jesus was self-aware all the time, to battle and reject his own temptations, and this gave him great authority.
Are you self-aware and ready to reject temptations in your own wilderness…?? Do you embrace your own authority over challenges and over your own demons…?? Your desires, your anger, your stress, your worries, your pain, your loss—these are your demons, your devil. Your situations in life are your wilderness. Authority is the power you must embrace at all times from within you to be free and ascend, to tell the devil to leave you at once, to build your own heaven and leave your example for others to follow–even as Jesus left his example for us to follow.
