Read: Matthew 4:8-11
Think: How have you chosen popularity or power over letting God be "number one" in your life? In the passage, Satan blatantly attempts to coerce Jesus. But with us, the temptation is sometimes so subtle that we don’t realize we are in deep worship of something until it’s a devoted obsession. What do you often “worship” above Him?
Pray: Thank you that you are the one true God and that you satisfy more than anything else that I try to fill my heart with. “Tune my heart to sing your praise” today, Jesus.
Apply: Take some time to journal a few thoughts today. Write down the good things in your life that you have made ultimate things. Take a step today toward knocking those idols down and putting God in His rightful place.
