Me: Prodigal, where are you going?
Prodigal: I am not sure and I am confused about which way to go so I was looking at these signs.
Me: While you try to figure out which way to go, let me quote from Ravi Zacharias in his book Jesus Among other gods.
Jesus was hungry and physically weak, and the tempter stormed Him with a series of taunts. One of those gibes thrown was, “Jump, and see if Your Father will honor His word.” Every temptation was fused with the same challenge: “Why don’t You do this Your own way and prove Your autonomy?”
Since the beginning the Father of lies has tried to have us to believe that God’s word is not true and also for us to go our own way instead of following God’s way. Isn’t it normal today not to read your bible? Isn’t it normal today to prove that you are independent with no need to listen to anyone else let alone God? Satan’s subtle tactics seem to be working in the world around us. Is it going to work with you today?
For because he himself has suffered when tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.
