Mark:Day 1 - I Am Quenched
This 30 Days Series will lead us to Touch the Hem of Jesus' Robe by taking a look at the Gospel of Mark.
The Word - "The Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. And he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. And he was with the wild animals, and the angels were ministering to him." Mark 1:12 ESV
A Thought - Right after being baptized, the Holy Spirit sent Jesus to be tempted by Satan AND the angels were ministering to him. Often, after a significant spiritual victory, the Lord allow us to be tested by the Enemy. I believe He does this for the same reason that a blacksmith heats metal then quenches it in water; to make sure that the changes the blacksmith has made to the metal become permanent and strong.
A Prayer - Lord, thank you for making me more like Jesus each day. Thank you for the spiritual victories that form me and the testings You allow that make those changes permanent. I am also thankful that in the same way that you sent Your angels to minister to Jesus, You send them to minister to me. - In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
