Today I decided to share the writing of my favorite author, Max Lucado. Below you can read today’s devotion, found on his website, Maxlucado.com. Max’s simplicity, candor, and practicality have always brought me comfort and joy. Hopefully his writing does the same for you.
“Satan tried to write his own story in which he was the hero and God was an afterthought. He admitted as much when he said, ‘I will ascend to the heavens…I will make myself like the Most High’ (Isaiah 14:13-14).
Satan wanted to take God’s place, but God wasn’t and is not moving. Satan wants to win you to his side, but God will never let you go. You have his word! Even more, you have his help! Scripture says, ‘For our high priest (Jesus) is able to understand our weaknesses…he was tempted in every way that we are, but he did not sin. Let us then, come before God’s throne where there is grace to help us when we need it’ (Hebrews 4:15-16).
You don’t have to face Satan alone. We shout, and God runs—at the right moment.”
