Join the church to say what needs Dr. Tony Evans talked about how surprisingly easy it is to misdirect your devotion, especially during times of testing worship is five celebrating faithfulness. This is the alternative Dr. Tony author, speaker, senior pastor of Oakland Bible Fellowship Dallas, Texas, president of the Dr. Evans is said that all of us. One of three places in life. We are either being tested. Just got through being tested or are about to be tested today. He explains how depending on the power of the Holy Spirit prepares us to succeed, regardless of where we are less joint. My mind to Jesus in chapter 7 verse one that Jesus will the Holy Spirit returning to the spirit into the wilderness for 40 days and he became hungry.

We are faced now with the three temptations depending on when you got from Satan inside the Jesus Christ summarize them by simply saying there's only one point here that three illustrations of one point Jesus independently of God that the quest that is the question that you and I face and I went to Mrs. well we got that was the task of God test one of the son of God to become bread and some bread because Jesus was hungry Jesus is saying let me make bread for you when I come off.

He was, why don't you make bread for you. Don't you wait around here.okay so stuff. What it comes from. Another way provision in the grab side a faction on your lesson will come from when I come from right because men live by bread alone. He also lived but when it came from what source and the reason why some of the one that we still own choice, and as long as your own source you not ready for an limitation secret God will keep you in the wilderness as long as it takes to discover your natural source test number two. He let him and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory in a moment of time to video it is a moment of time. He is into a virtual reality kind of what he sees the Sphinx of Egypt and he sees the Coliseum's role and he sees the magnificence of Greece's, and he has shown the world of the world and the devil said, okay, what is the curb or have people ask about the brittleness they read business and I don't understand this and that's verse six and the devil said to him when talking to me how much we didn't actually see the world is been given to me and I can give it to whoever I want to get to and right now Jesus will give you the world of finance want to give you more money than you could ever dream politics more power than you could ever dream business. I want to give you more success than you could ever dream of the world of education. I want to give you more knowledge than you could ever dream of mine to give.

Before I go any further, I'd like to suggest that many of us who are successful have been made successful by the devil has blessed you with that house. With that, with that wardrobe with that Korea has blessed you with that name because he says his mind really give is because it was given to me this must alleviate some of people you know soon will you go to refuse you.

You one thing. Worship me, I will give you the King of glory.

But then I would give you the goals with the glory, given to Jesus you work it don't have to be this summer.

Give it to make it easy for you, just from you is you worship? What in the world is how you know what you worship.

Your worship is tied to your worship is tied to who you where you will for your life worship show necessarily is not necessarily all job and worshiping the devil joined the first church to say worship God and Satan say what I will bless you with all excited to get all excited about the question is why they want men. They wanted me. We want me Angry with them. They were complaining and grateful and so God said, I'll send you meat boxes quail ring down to squeal to squeal everywhere. But the Bible says begins. Think what they thought was a blessing with actually a curse and is said to begin the stink in the nostrils is said and God quail but only this just common stuff and haven't stopped if God gave it to you but what I am saying is just but he was off many of us this morning to talk about things, and that when we first got that turned out to be a curse. No, if it's a blessing from God will bless him from the devil if it's like a neutral thing. It could be a blessing for me, the real simple Bible says if it comes from God. Proverbs 1022 at half no sorrow with God always accompanies his blessings with his joy.

This happened joy. That means stability internally regardless of circumstances that watch this Jesus answered and said, it is written, they go to the quote about my get the impression he believed it is written, you shall worship the Lord your God and serve him. Satan never brought up serving things that worship me. Jesus and worship the Lord and serve him only because Satan worship me worship yourselves to serve worship always is connected to service never just Dr. Evans will come back with more force in just a minute, including a look at an unbeatable biblical strategy for dealing with the devil.

You think one thing you can get now stop waiting for God I give so you know what he had to believe Jesus is saying 311 doing a lot of the spirit while being led is God's will for if development got 50 feet high and you will not be asking Jesus to do.
